Information and Technology Management (MSc)

Course Description

This program develops students to become T-shaped professionals in the new global, knowledge based economy by equipping them with both advanced IT technical and managerial skills needed to pursue a successful career.

In this era of market globalization, information technology has emerged as a fundamental factor in the success of business operations. The role of information technology is particularly important for service industries such as finance, insurance, real estates, transport logistics and hospitality in which efficiency provides a definite competitive edge. To improve our service industries and secure Hong Kong’s position as a leading digital city, business managers must be equipped with knowledge of most up-to-date information technology (IT) and business management, and must be able to apply that knowledge to plan and deploy information systems that enhance productivity, competitiveness and performance of their organizations. The Master of Science Program in Information and Technology Management (MSc in ITM) is specially designed to meet this need.

The Program is aimed at individuals with a technical or engineering background who would like to gain the requisite knowledge in technology management, and at business graduates who wish to acquire cutting-edge IT proficiency. The Program also offers a good foundation for students who prepare to pursue further studies in PhD.

Daniel CHAN

I started my career as a credit analyst, and then moved into the product management of credit risk products. My product management role not only requires financial industry knowledge, but also technology knowledge and project management skills. Although I have
gained considerable know-how from my work experience, I have always felt that perhaps I should undertake some formal training.

In recent years, financial technology has become a hot topic, and one that interests me both professionally and personally. To pursue that interest formally, I began to investigate the various programs available. After attending a CUHK information seminar and learning about such ITM M.Sc. program highlights as the “U.S. Technology Field Trip” and “Startup: from Idea to Reality,” I thought to myself: “Yes, that’s exactly what I am looking for!”

This Master program has broadened my horizons and equipped me with practical knowledge and insights that help me to resolve issues that arise on a daily basis. It has also given me a wonderful opportunity to meet a lot of talented people and create unforgettable memories together.

Thomas FUNG

Leaving my comfort zone to pursue a Master’s degree in IT management after years of internal struggle over whether to do so has been a truly challenging yet rewarding experience. In fact, I would say that it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The M.Sc. journey started on a high note with a two-day outward bound expedition, which required all of our potential, team-work skills, and creativity to persevere, both spiritually and physically. I will always treasure the department for arranging such a thoughtful and meaningful orientation camp, which offered us a solid foundation and understanding for rising to the challenges to come.

I am also grateful to the course instructors for bringing me broad management knowledge, refreshing ideas, skills, and new perspectives, which are helping me to resolve most of the challenges that arise at work. In addition, I greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with so many talented peers from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, providing me with an authentic social network that has enriched my personal life. The Technology Field Trip to Silicon Valley was an eye opener and an once-in-a-lifetime experience that is not to be missed. During the trip, we visited a variety of renowned high-tech giants and impressive startups, giving us profound insight into the IT industry.
