The School of Business and Management (SB&M) comprises six departments: Accounting, Economics, Finance, Information and Systems Management, Management of Organizations, and Marketing. The School enrolls almost 40% of the University's undergraduate students and approximately 30% of its postgraduate students. All departments offer undergraduate as well as postgraduate programs through to the doctorate.

Building on a strong broad-based foundation, undergraduate students choose a program in which particular skills are acquired. Thus, graduates are able to enter a specialized job market while retaining sufficient flexibility and adaptability for future career growth. Most postgraduates are enrolled, either full- or part-time, for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, and research students study for the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.

Strong emphasis is placed on scientific and analytical methods as the fundamental pedagogical approach, supplemented by the use of case studies appropriate to Hong Kong and its neighboring region. The School takes full advantage of the University's state-of-the-art technological capabilities in its instruction and research.

The School is the first business school in Asia to be awarded dual accreditation by the US-based AACSB International — The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, and the European Quality Improvement System. Its full-time MBA program was ranked by the Financial Times as among the world's top 50. The Financial Times has also awarded the School with the top position in Asia Pacific for the executive education programs that it specially tailors for companies. Its joint executive MBA program with Kellogg School of Management, was ranked 2nd in the world in 2005 by the same paper. The School organizes the largest international student exchange program in Asia for its undergraduate programs with participating partners from a total of 97 major business schools in Asia, Australia, Europe, Mexico, North America and New Zealand. One out of every three undergraduate students has a chance to go on overseas exchange for one semester. The MBA program has over 51 exchange partners worldwide.
