The decision to admit a student to a major will be made by the department based on the student’s choice, overall GPA of year one study, and/or other criteria set out by the department. Students will be asked to rank their major choices (from the most preferred one to the least) during the semester 2 (probably before final examination) of their Year One study for the department’s consideration and approval.

All students within the Faculty of Business are encouraged to participate in a range of extracurricular activities, such as leadership training camps, peer tutoring, and mentorship.

If students wish, and subject to availability, they can spend a semester studying at another university overseas or in mainland China, with the credits counted towards their PolyU degree.

It offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programmes within business, typically with an interdisciplinary and international focus. CBS is accredited by EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System), AMBA (Association of MBAs), as well as AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), thus making it one of the few schools worldwide to hold the triple-crown accreditation.

Upon completion of the programme, students will be awarded two degrees in business, BBA (Hons) in Global Business and Logistics from PolyU, and BSc in International Business (Logistics and Supply Chain Management) from CBS.
