The Open University of Hong Kong TOP

The Open University of Hong Kong is a financially independent university, set up in 1989 by the Hong Kong Government. As a self-financing public institution under the aegis of the HKSAR Government's Education Bureau, the University's degrees and other qualifications are equal to those awarded by all other Hong Kong Government-established universities. They are recognized both in Hong Kong and overseas. The University's Chancellor is the Chief Executive of the HKSAR, Mr Leung Chun Ying, and the President is Professor John C Y Leong. Professor Leong is an internationally renowned clinician-scientist specializing in spinal and pediatric orthopaedics. He is an Academician of the Chinese Academy of Science and a member of the International Commission of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation in the United States and the International Network of Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education.


The University comprises four academic schools, namely the School of Arts and Social Sciences, Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration, School of Education and Languages, and School of Science and Technology. It offers different levels of academic programmes including PhD, Master's Degree, Bachelor's Degree, Associate Degree, etc. The University's continuing education arm, The Li Ka Shing Institute of Professional and Continuing Education, mainly provides courses and programmes in professional training.


Committed to providing "Education for All", the University strives to make available quality higher education in flexible modes (including distance learning mode, e-learning mode, full-time face-to-face mode and part-time face-to-face mode) to everyone aspiring to further studies. The University's programmes are flexible in terms of language medium, teaching mode, teaching and learning support technologies, structure and duration. Students are given greater flexibility to determine their own study path and pace, taking into account the demands of further studies, career development and family commitments.



School of Arts and Social Sciences TOP

The study of humanity and of human society lies at the heart of any university. The School of Arts and Social Sciences (A&SS) aims to broaden students' academic horizons, enhance their intellectual understanding of the humanities and/or social sciences, and equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to meet the changing needs of Hong Kong society. Our degrees in Chinese Language and Literature are recognized by the Education and Manpower Bureau, and degree holders from Language and Translation programmes are eligible for exemption from the Language Proficiency Requirement.



Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration TOP

The Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration is one of the four Schools of the Open University of Hong Kong. The School is responsible for offering all degree programmes and credit bearing courses in the area of business administration offered by the OUHK.


Currently, the School offers programmes leading to the award of qualifications from sub-degree level to postgraduate level. Most of the courses offered by the School are locally developed by experienced professional consultants and academics. The course contents are specially designed to suit the business environment of Hong Kong and the Greater China region.


The School is committed to developing and providing high-quality courses and programmes to enable learners to acquire up-to-date knowledge and skills, and to broaden their perspectives to succeed in the ever-changing business world.


To facilitate communication and coordination within the School, the academic staff are grouped into two subject areas (strands): the Accounting, Finance and Law Strand and the Marketing, Management and Decision Science Strand.



Web Journal of Chinese Management Review


The Web Journal of Chinese Management Review aims to provide an online forum for these scholars to share their latest research outcomes and insights. With the development of IT and the widespread use of the Internet, electronic media have replaced print as the most effective means of transmitting information. Chinese management scholars in the Greater China region and around the world can now communicate and share management expertise at any time on the Internet.


Professor Liu Chang-Yung of the Taiwan Sun Yat-sen University founded the Web Journal of Chinese Management Review in 1998, making it the first e-journal for Chinese management scholars. Since its inception, the journal has been well received, with scholars contributing actively on different areas of management studies. In the beginning, most contributions were from Taiwan . However, since November 2001 — when the Faculty of Business Administration of the Chinese University of Hong Kong took over the editorial work, and Professor Liu Chang-Yung and Professor Tuan Chyau became the Co-Editors — scholars from Mainland China as well as overseas Chinese scholars from around the world have contributed to the journal, which has, as a result, become more international in outlook.


In August 2004, Professor Liu Chang-Yung and Professor Tuan Chyau commissioned the School of Business and Administration (now the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration) of the Open University of Hong Kong to reorganize the Editorial Board of the journal and continue with the work of bringing together scholars of the Greater China region and promoting academic exchange among higher education communities through the publication of high-quality papers. The journal continues to welcome academic papers with different perspectives. All papers will be treated on an equal basis. It is hoped that Chinese management scholars can share the latest developments in the field of management studies through this Web journal, which is open to the entire academic community.
