Message from the Dean

We are living in unprecedented times as technological advances accelerate in automation, machine learning, artificial intelligence, biomedicine, and the global economy and international political structure are undergoing fundamental changes. Never do the business landscapes change so rapidly, which present entrepreneurs and business leaders with numerous opportunities as well as tremendous challenges.

How do corporations survive and thrive in this complex and dynamic environment? How each of us can help to make the future world more peaceful and prosperous for our children and future generations? Faced with great uncertainty in a fast-changing world, it is more imperative than ever that leaders in business and in the general society stay current about the newest developments in technology and global economy, and never stop thinking and learning.

HKU Business School, together with our partner institution, Guanghua School of Management of Peking University, collaborate strategically to launch the Doctor of Business Administration Programme (“DBA Programme”) in 2017, which is designed to provide a unique learning journey for responsible and ambitious entrepreneurs and business leaders who aim to lead their firms to greater success and to contribute more to building a better future for all.

The strategic partnership of two world-renowned business schools in the region brings together world-class scholars to provide our students a wide array of diverse academic learning opportunities and intellectually stimulating experiences. Synthesizing the strengths of both Schools, the DBA Programme will help students further develop their analytical skills, foster their strategic creativity, cultivate their innovative mind, and enrich their management knowledge, preparing them to steer through uncharted waters.

Graduates of the DBA Programme will be INSPIRED and EMPOWERED to be stronger leaders, LEADING their own way of success. Over time, the DBA Programme will become a learning platform and community in which students, alumni and faculty members are fully engaged in life-long learning. Together, they will face the uncertain future with great confidence and are prepared to take on the challenges and responsibilities of our time.

I invite you to join us in this exciting learning journey.
