Aim

We cater for ambitious employees in the private and public sectors who wish to develop their management skills and enhance their career opportunities. This is a conversion programme, designed primarily for graduates in disciplines other than management. However, candidates with prior management or business education may be admitted, depending on their career needs.

This programme provides non-business graduates with the needed foundation in the main functional areas of management, and graduates in all disciplines with in-depth training in operations management.

Features
  • Operations management in services and manufacturing
  • Resources management in private and public sectors
  • Quantitative techniques, decision-making, quality management, resource planning, information technology, and e-commerce
  • Development of ability to contribute in a cross-functional, team environment
  • Independent investigation into specific management problems
  • A Bachelor's degree or equivalent professional qualifications, preferably with at least one year of relevant work experience.
  • Applicants with other post-secondary qualifications, who have been employed in industry, commerce or public administration for not less than 6 years, of which 3 years in a managerial capacity, will also be considered.

If you are not a native speaker of English, and your Bachelor’s degree or equivalent qualification was awarded by an institution at which the medium of instruction is not English, you are expected to fulfil the University’s minimum English language requirement for admission. Please refer to the “Admissions Requirements” section at Study@PolyU for details.
