SERVICE at HONG KONG POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY (2005-2014)

Director - Doctor of Management (DMgt) Program (2013-2014)

Deputy Director - Doctor of Management (DMgt) Program (2010-2013)


Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) and Doctor of Management (DMgt) were the two flagship programs of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). DBA is the first of its kind in Hong Kong and has been offered for more than ten years. Jointly offered by PolyU and Remin University in China, DMgt, the counterpart of DMgt, was the first executive doctoral program certified by the Chinese Ministry of Education. With well-structured course arrangement and demanding thesis requirement, DBA and DMgt have been viewed as highly prestigious programs.

Inspired by the concept of “Engaged Scholarship,” the DBA and DMgt programs aim to transform senior executives into "scholar leaders" who are able to integrate theoretical perspectives and scientific methods to tackle high-impact managerial problems. DBA and DMgt students include business leaders and high profile government officers. Our alumni include Chairmen and CEOs of leading business organizations, such as Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, Motorola China, Microsoft, China Mobile, China Telecom, Disney, etc., and senior officers from both the Hong Kong and Chinese governments.

As the Director of the DBA and DMgt programs, Dr. Hsieh's responsibilities include:

  • Expand, review, and improve the structure and content of the DBA and DMgt programs.

  • Device marketing strategy and communication plan.

  • Promote the two programs by delivering talks in Hong Kong and major cities in China.

  • Coordinate both programs for joint promotion and development.

  • Screen applications and interview applicants.

  • Recruit faculty members for program course need.

  • Pair student interests with faculty competencies for student thesis development.

  • Supervise DMgt and DBA student theses and chair dissertation committees.

  • Nominate candidates for best thesis award, review nominations, and select award winners.

  • Coordinate and collaborate with Remin University for DMgt program related activities.

  • Expand and strengthen alumni network.

  • Negotiate with major corporate accounts for special training purposes.


Synergy with Scholarly Research: Dr. Hsieh systematically created synergies between scholarly research (including the PhD program) and the problem driven research agenda of the DBA and DMgt programs.  Dr. Hsieh established several win-win research collaborations with leading corporations (e.g., China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, etc.)—the senior executives of these companies have been students of our DBA and DMgt programs.  These collaborations generated access to data/sites of world-class corporations, DBA/DMgt/PhD theses, and publications in premier journals (e.g., Management Science, MIS Quarterly, and Information Systems Research, Journal of Applied Psychology).
