About The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong – Foundation

The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong – Foundation is established by The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK) to serve as a platform to engage our donors, connecting them to the advancement of its teaching, learning and research priorities. Embracing the unique “Liberal + Professional” education model, HSUHK aspires to excel as a leading private liberal-arts-oriented university in the region. 


HSUHK traces its roots back 43 years to the establishment of Hang Seng School of Commerce (HSSC) in 1980, with funding from the S H Ho Foundation, the Ho Tim Charitable Foundation, Dah Chong Hong Limited, several Hang Seng Bank founding directors, and Hang Seng Bank Limited. From 1980 to 2009, HSSC was a pioneering and leading provider of post-secondary programmes in business and related areas.


In response to the Chief Executive’s Policy Address in 2009 which highlighted the growing significance of quality private universities in Hong Kong, HSSC, in 2010, was re-structured into Hang Seng Management College (HSMC), a non-profit private university-level institution registered under the Post Secondary Colleges Ordinance (Cap. 320) to offer bachelor’s or higher degree programmes in diversified disciplines.


Eight years later, on 30 October 2018, HSMC was granted approval by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) to gain university title as “The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong”.


HSUHK aspires to be a leading, non-profit, private liberal-arts-oriented university in the region, recognised for its excellence in teaching, learning, and research, serving and advancing our society and the world. HSUHK has 5 Schools (Business, Communication, Decision Sciences, Humanities & Social Science, and Translation and Foreign Languages) with a student population of around 6,000 and 200 full-time academic staff members.


HSUHK currently offers a number of bachelor’s (Honours) and master’s degree programmes. Many of these programmes are unique and the first of its kind in the region. All programmes were accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications and recognised by the Governments of HKSAR, mainland China, and Taiwan.
