Rector’s Message

As the only public and comprehensive University in Macau, the University of Macau (UM) has been a key platform between the East and West and through which has had significant involvement and contribution to regional development strategies.

Located in the Pearl River Delta (PRD), and well established in now the most economically developed region in China, Macau is advantageously situated in one of the most prosperous areas in the world. UM has benefited from this remarkable expansion and development in the PRD, and through which has confirmed and elevated the University’s importance within the region. With the new developments in the Greater Bay Area, and the recent initiatives of the University in cutting edge research and interdisciplinary academic programmes, UM has entered a new era of unprecedented growth. This includes the newly established Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) programme offered by the Faculty of Business Administration (FBA), aimed at strengthening entrepreneurial and managerial capabilities among senior business executives. This programme will provide participants with even greater opportunities to enhance their professional expertise, encompassing academic rigor within Macau and the region’s unique business and multicultural environment.

I warmly welcome you to join our new EMBA programme, and to further harness your chance to be a part of, and an influencer in this vibrant and ever-changing business world.

Dean’s Message

The Executive MBA (EMBA) is designed with the working executive in mind, wishing to further develop skills in leadership, strategic decision-making and career advancement. As a distinctive flagship full-service business school with key responsibilities in business and management education and in nurturing the leadership and entrepreneurial talents for the development of Macau and beyond, the Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) has gained greater reputation and increasing recognition as a global leading business school. Part of this is through our strengthening of links with industry and international endorsements such as the Association of Advanced Collegiate of Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation as well as professional certification from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Charted Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and Certified Public Accountants (CPA) (Australia).

The EMBA at FBA will be studied within the backdrop of the rapid economic growth in Asia and the globalisation of markets, various political changes, technological advancements and the emergence of new and disruptive business models which have intensified competition at home and abroad. These
dynamic forces reshaping the business environment will provide greater application and significance to the EMBA studied with us.

The rising demand for well-educated executives, creative thinking and a culture demanding greater levels of business innovation has grown dramatically, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. The EMBA has been designed specifically with this in mind with unparalleled teaching and research facilities with
exposure to one of the most dynamic regions in Asia and the world.

I welcome you on board your next great challenge!
