With more than 40 full-time academic staff, the Department of Management and Marketing (MM) is one of the largest departments in the University. It has expertise in general and strategic management, entrepreneurship, organizational behaviour, human resource management, international business and marketing. Staff are actively engaged in research and consultancy, in Hong Kong, the Chinese Mainland and internationally.
The Department's teaching philosophy reflects a commitment to excellence and to innovation in learning and teaching. The Department employs a range of experiential, problem-based, and case-based learning techniques. The aim is to develop not only business and management knowledge, but also interpersonal skills and teamwork.


The Department is a major contributor to the postgraduate programmes hosted by the Faculty of Business.

MM academics also supervise research students enrolled for MPhil and PhD degrees and carry out applied research in management and marketing.
