Mathematics and Statistics

Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the Hang Seng Management College (HSMC). The Department, in line with the vision and mission of HSMC, places emphasis on teaching and research. In addition, our Department has been strengthening industry connections through active engagement in providing consultancy and public services.

Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Data Science and Business Intelligence (BSC-DSBI)

The BSC-DSBI is the first degree programme offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The Programme emphasises the consolidation and integration of two areas of knowledge and understanding, namely, Data Science (DS) and Business Intelligence (BI). The ultimate goal is engaging students to data and business analytical skills that improve and optimise decisions and performance of business operations, also equipping them to be fully capable of identifying and solving business problems.

The BSC-AIN is designed to train professionals which are of keen demand by the insurance industry, to provide professional training on actuarial studies and insurance practice to students. The Programme helps them prepare for their future career; meanwhile, to bring in new blood to the industry and fulfill the market needs.

Research and Scholarship

The Department has a team of experts in various research areas such as data mining, statistical modeling, asset management, option pricing, actuarial science and risk management. Our faculty members are active in academic research and frequently publish their research outputs in top-tier journals, and we have been actively participating in a wide range of externally and internally funded research projects, particularly the Research Grants Council’s Competitive Research Funding Schemes.

Teaching and Learning

In addition to the modules offered to our BSC-DSBI and BSC-AIN students, the Department also provides modules to students in other Degree Programmes to develop their analytical skills, in particular, to make use of mathematics and statistics to deal with business-related problems. Moreover, our Department will offer mathematics and statistics modules as part of general education for all students at HSMC in the near future.

    Programme contents are very comprehensive with business and liberal study elements, enabling students to acquire broader knowledge. Students can also take electives based on their own interests. Teachers at HSUHK are always eager to help and answer questions from students. They get along with students and demonstrate positive personal values. Besides teaching, our teachers also care much about students’ personal and career developments. All these are fond memories of my campus life.

    The tremendous efforts of HSUHK to promote sustainability is highly appreciated. It is hoped that conservation concepts could be instilled in the younger generation at an early stage.
