IFMG IS Smart Double Major  

Our students have great flexibilities to complete a double major degree in Information Management and in Accounting, Finance or Marketing. Local core industries, such as financial services, professional services, logistics and trading services, are being transformed by big data and artificial intelligence (AI). Our graduates have outstanding opportunities to play a major role in this digital transformation process.

IFMG IS Smart Innovation

Our students gain the knowledge and skills to apply modern information systems (e.g., AI, big data and cloud services) to business innovations. They can participate in a one-week Smart Business Study Tour to Stanford University and visit AAAF companies (Apple, Amazon, Alphabet and Facebook) in Silicon Valley, or join a one-month Smart Business Project Tour for visits and work experience in FinTech and/or BAT companies (Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent) closer to home.

IFMG IS Smart Business

Our students gain a business mindset from exposure to new IS business strategies and Internet business models. They will gain the knowledge and skills to analyse high-growth technology companies and make wise investment decisions. They will also gain good communication and project management skills that will qualify them for project management jobs in multinational companies.
