Our school had also received professional recognition by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), CPA Australia and Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries (HKICS). Hence our graduates in Bachelor of Business Administration (Hons) majoring in Accountancy or Corporate Management are granted equivalent exemption status by relevant professional institutes; same as students of other local universities.

The School would like to emphasise that the title of our Corporate Management Stream has been changed to Corporate Management and Governance (CMG). The new title reflects the revised curriculum with coverage of Corporate Governance in more in-depth contents and inclusion of new courses, such as Risk Management and Boardroom Dynamics, that are required under the HKICS' new Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme (CGQP) with effect from January 2020. The BBACMG is the first Degree Programme in Hong Kong recognised by HKICS as the Partnership Bachelor's Programme (PBP) with maximum 4-paper exemptions under the CGQP. With the increasing initial public offerings in Hong Kong, our BBAAC and BBACMG graduates are prepared to meet the high demand for accounting and corporate governance professionals.

"Graduation season was closed. Whilst graduation is the closing of one chapter, it is the opening of a new one in my life. I want to say a big 'Thank You' to my professors at CIHE for their excellent teaching, caring and advice on my studies and career. I also acquired the accounting knowledge and skills which formed a firm basis for my current work as a fund accountant at HSBC.

Sure, not only had I clearly learned a lot about accounting, my critical thinking and problem-solving skills had become drastically better to handle different difficult issues."

“You can never plan the future by the past.” Edmund Burke.

I was a social science student before I entered Caritas Institute of Higher Education. I thank my alma mater for accepting my shortcomings and giving me a chance to step into new fields. Teachers in Caritas Institute of Higher Education taught me according to my aptitude. My alma mater had a major influence in making me who I am today. Time flies. I have been working in the society for several years after my graduation. Although I still encounter difficulties in my career, I can overcome the difficulties as I have learnt patient, perseverance, continuous learning and never give up from my alma mater. Luckily, I become a chartered company secretary now. Trust me, you can make it too.

Ms Cherie Chen

Graduate of 2019, BBA (Hons) (Hotel Management Stream)

Learning is a continuous and lifelong process, students or practitioners should keep learning the latest developments and trends in their field.

I studied Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) Hotel Management in Caritas Institute of Higher Education (CIHE) which did give me a different campus life. In the past 4 years, teachers gave me countless care and help in order to let me had a better integrate into the new learning environment.

Professors and teachers of the programme have extensive work experiences in the hotel industry. They used practical examples to make it easier for me to have a better understanding the theory in the course, and then effectively apply and analyse the future trends of the hotel industry.

This programme provides internship opportunities to enable students have a better balance between theory and practice. CIHE also has a Career Center to help graduates seek suitable jobs.
