  2. To provide students with a multi-disciplinary knowledge and analytical ability which make them aware of the complexity of the business environment;
  3. To develop students’ information processing skills and communication skills; and
  4. To give students a sound liberal education which will render a sufficiently broad perspective to meet future challenges brought about by the ever changing environment.
