Dean’s Message

The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK) is a self-funded private university committed to providing outstanding business education to society since it was first established as the Hang Seng Management College in 2010. The University offers a wide spectrum of innovative post-secondary degree programmes and curricula as well as a modern environment in which the potential and talents of our students can be nurtured and developed.

The School of Communication has been playing a leading role in providing business communication education. It is a pioneer in offering the unique Bachelor of Journalism and Communication (Honours) programme in 2011, which combines business and finance with journalism and communication to meet the industry’s increasing demand for professionals in business journalism, corporate communication and public relations. In 2016, the School further launched the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Convergent Media and Communication Technology programme, which focuses on leveraging technology to serve communication needs. In 2018, the School’s first master’s degree programme, Master of Arts in Strategic Communication, was approved by the Chief Executive-in-Council ExCo, signifying a leap forward of the School in providing wide-ranging high quality degree programmes at different levels.

The School of Communication’s faculty consists of renowned academic scholars and seasoned media professionals. With strong support from the University, the School features state-of-the-art facilities, including the SCOM TV Studio, the TV Lab, the Radio Broadcasting Studio, the Radio Broadcasting Training Centre, the Multimedia Training Centre, the Non-linear Editing Room and the Media and Communication Lab. These facilities are established to prepare our students to venture into the “real world” with required skills and experience. Our mission is not only to educate and train students to be media professionals equipped with necessary knowledge and skills and to pursue further studies at the post-graduate level, but also to heighten student’s sense of social awareness and responsibility through broad-based cross-disciplinary studies and training. 

On behalf of the School of Communication, I would like to extend my warmest welcome to all of our students and visitors. I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our programmes, activities and learning opportunities. We are continuously enhancing the quality of our education and training. Your input is important. If you have any comment or suggestion, please write to us at scom@hsu.edu.hk.
