Many businesses need professionals who are skilful in project management and who are capable of innovating and providing creative solutions to complex problems. We help students to develop an innovative approach to problem solving in general and to project management in particular. Over time, this should produce highly skilled management professionals to operate throughout China, including Hong Kong. The Dissertation further allows MSc students to pursue a topic of their own choice in greater depth.
