The Centre established under the School of Decision Sciences aims to undertake relevant, high-quality applied research in Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Business Analytics. It also addresses the growing demand in industry for a fuller understanding of Big Data, and disseminate Big Data related knowledge to academics, practitioners and government units in Hong Kong.

Chinese Family Succession Research Centre (CFSRC)

The Centre established under the School of Business aims to put the belief of a “Stronger family, Stronger country” into practice and make a significant contribution to the Two-Centenary goal of China.   Combining “theory and practice”, CFSRC will assist the sustainable development of family business and aim to be the pioneer in the related field. 

Centre for Greater China Studies (CGCS)

The Centre, supported by the RGC Institutional Development Scheme, aims to enhance interdisciplinary research that highlights the rise of China and its impact on the rest of the world. The Centre has two major objectives. First, it serves as a research platform to formulate and promote Greater China studies at HSUHK.  Second, its facilitates academic exchange and cooperation between local and international scholars.  The Centre focuses on four key areas:

  • To facilitate research on the Belt and Road Initiative and the Big Bay Area Development. 
  • To encourage research on interactions between China and the rest of the world, and accompanying problems that may occur.
  • To promote digital research methods and apply related knowledge to the field of Greater China studies.
  • To set up a “Greater China Research Network” website which would be used to engage in various types of academic activities and online publication.

Deep Learning Research & Application Centre (DLC) 

The Centre, supported by the RGC Institutional Development Scheme, provides a Cloud Computing environment for deep learning, as well as being a hub for promoting and applying deep learning to projects of various domains.  Research projects with innovative applications and potential will be identified to make good use of the Centre’s resources.  The deliverables include the training and promotion of deep learning systems in the University, as well as academic publications, conference talks and other forms of knowledge exchange (e.g. workshops, tutorials, seminars and conference). 

Policy Research Institute of Global Supply Chain (PRISC)

The Institute, established and administered under the School of Decision Sciences, aims to undertake relevant, high-quality policy research in supply chain and logistics management, bringing direct benefits to the community and enhancing the well-beings of supply chain and logistics stakeholders in Hong Kong and Pearl River Delta. 

Research Institute for Business (RIB)

Established in 2015/16, the RIB was created through generous support under the RGC Institutional Development Scheme of Hong Kong. The initial HK$13.4 million grant provided a catalyst for facilitating research across all areas of business and management.

Currently the institute has five themes that cut across the School of Business. These include research in the following: Contemporary Issues in Capital Markets, Consumer and Organizational Behaviour, Cross-Cultural Management and International Markets, Ethics and Sustainability (including Junzi), and Pedagogy, Teaching and Case Research. These themes are coordinated through several faculty members and academics across the School are free to join any one or more of these. The aim of the five themes is to bring like-minded researchers together. Individuals can therefore share knowledge, network with others and work together to apply for research funding that ultimately will generate publications in leading journals.
