The aim of the programme is to nurture the next-generation business leaders with the latest technical know-how to succeed in fast-changing technologies for business. Innovation and technology (I&T) development has been among the top priorities of the HKSAR Government. Manpower requirements in the sector are expected to increase by more than the average manpower requirements of the overall Hong Kong economy. In particular, future development of Hong Kong in the direction of a "smart economy" is expected to create related job demand and business opportunities. Graduates from traditional computer science programmes need solid training in Business to cope with the fast-changing landscape of business and information technologies, whereas graduates from traditional business school programmes need better skills in the use of big data and real-time analytics to support business decisions. The programme aims to bridge these gaps by integrating Computer Science skills and knowledge of business applications. It provides students with the training in advanced programming and data-analytics skills, as well as broadens their awareness in business applications of these skills.
