Core courses include accounting, economics, finance, marketing, organisational behaviour, project management and strategic planning, along with more than 30 elective courses.

Face-to-face tutorials by the Polytechnic University (PolyU) faculty will be held on weekends while online discussion groups will give students access to peers worldwide.
