The Department of Management was founded in 1991, same as the founding of the University and the Business School. It was named as Department of Management of Organizations from Aug 1994 - Aug 2009. Over the past 15 years, the department has built a group of diverse and high-quality faculty members whose expertise cover such areas as organization theory, business strategy, organizational behaviors, and human resource management. To facilitate intellectual exchange and knowledge diffusion, the department played host to over 60 visiting scholars who spent between two months to two years teaching and researching on campus. It has organized two international research conferences, numerous workshops, and established the Hang Lung Center for Organization Research (HLCOR) and the Center for Business Strategy and Innovation (CBSI). It also has established a long-term program of collaborative research with organization researchers in China.
The mission of the department is to be a leader of organization and management research in the Asia-Pacific region. To this end it continues to recruit and retain the brightest minds from around the world. It provides its students with the necessary training and preparation for them to become responsible and responsive professionals. It also works with local business leaders to identify and address pressing management problems through research, consultation and involvement in community activities.
Recognizing its unique position in the region where the notion of East meets West is
epitomized, the Department adopts a two-pronged strategy to develop global business knowledge and also accentuate its edge in building local expertise. First, the Department encourages and supports its faculty to pursue their diverse research interests. Second, the department also makes concerted efforts
to develop its strength in research on management and organization in the Chinese context, especially through the support of the HLCOR and CBSI.
