About Department of Business Adminstration
The Department of Business Administration was one of the departments established at the time when the Shue Yan College started in 1971 and a four-year Diploma Programme in Business Administration was offered. Beginning in September 2003 the Bachelor of Business Administration with Honours programme replaced the former diploma programme. The Master of Science in Marketing and Consumer Psychology was launched in September 2013.
