Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Global Marketing
Programme Director: Dr KAN, Clara
The MSc in Entrepreneurship and Global Marketing programme is jointly offered by the Department of Marketing, School of Business of the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and Grenoble École de Management (GEM). By combining Entrepreneurship and Global Marketing, the programme will provide students with entrepreneurial knowledge and skills for handling complex, dynamic and global business issues encountered by any organisations.
By adopting a multidisciplinary teaching and learning approach to Entrepreneurship and Marketing, the programme aims to equip students with entrepreneurial and global marketing knowledge so that they may start their own business, develop a successful entrepreneurial career in multi-national companies, or advance into managerial and leadership roles.
The programme utilises the synergies of having two partnering institutions located in different regions of the world. With emphasis on the unique international experience, students will be equipped to think globally and work in multicultural and multi-disciplinary teams. Students will gain extensive exposure to both Eastern and Western cultures, by spending the first semester studying in France and the second semester studying in Hong Kong, leading to a single degree to be jointly awarded by HKBU and GEM.
