As specialists are asked to perform more managerial tasks, the need for management development is increasing. To meet this growing demand, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University joins with the University of Warwick in England to introduce to Hong Kong the Integrated Engineering Business Management Program that has been very successful in the United Kingdom because of its relevance and practicality to society's actual needs. It is a unique part-time modular course for practicing managerial staff. The broad spread of faculty drawn from the constituent universities ensures that course content is relevant and constantly updated to reflect the latest advances in technology and practices. This industry-led program adopts a multidisciplinary approach and aims to develop students to appreciate modern management technology, broaden knowledge in technical and managerial areas, and to analyze problems and synthesize solutions through case studies. Academic staff and industrial supervisors collaborate on course management and operation. The global network of learning venues offers wide exposures to various cultures. Students may attend modules in different countries with freely transferable credits. Since 1990, more than 1,200 professionals sponsored by 600 companies have joined the program. Current participants number over 400. (YLB)
