Objectives

Hang Seng Management College (HSMC) is a tertiary institution in Hong Kong that places emphasis on business studies and the humanities. It is our belief that in addition to scholarship and moral development, our students should broaden their horizons and be insightful and far-sighted to meet new challenges in the ever-changing world of innovation.

It is against this background that we have established the Institute for Chinese Language and Culture (ICLC). The institute is devoted to the promotion of business ethics and Chinese culture on the one hand, and scholarship, moral excellence, and academic exchanges on the other. It aims to develop individuals into graduates who have a good command of Putonghua and a high level of cultural literacy. With a wide range of culture courses offered by the departments of Chinese and general education, we promote moral education and the gradual integration of traditional Chinese virtues into business practice to help create a caring society.

The ICLC is honoured to have Professor Jao Tsung-I, a world-renowned Chinese scholar and calligrapher, and Dr. David Sin Wai-kin, a successful and philanthropic businessman, as our Honorary Advisers.

Professor Jao has attained remarkable achievements in every field of humanities, including archaeology, literature, philology, religious studies, philosophy as well as arts and culture. His generous gifts to HSMC, including his calligraphy of the Institute name and our motto to promote sincerity in business ethics, are now displayed at the Institute and the library located in the S H Ho Academic Building.

Dr. Sin is the Director of Myer Jewelry Manufacturer Limited, Honorary Chairman of Hip Hing Construction Company Limited, Vice Chairman and Independent Non-executive Director of Miramar Hotel and Investment Company Limited, and Director of Luk Yu Tea. House. He is highly supportive of the development of higher education in Hong Kong, particularly the field of humanities. He has great love for Chinese culture and has established the “Sin Wai-kin Foundation for Promoting Chinese Culture” at HSMC. Dr. Sin’s generosity and dedication to education certainly make him the model of businessmen who demonstrate Confucian virtue in business practice.

The College is deeply grateful for Professor Jao and Dr. Sin’s professional advice and encouragement, which will surely help us further promote business ethics and Chinese culture. 

Development Guideline and Operation


We have set up the following centres under the ICLC to enhance the overall development of the College, to facilitate its global exchanges at the institute level, and to establish its international reputation. They are (1) the Centre for Business Ethics and Culture, (2) the Chinese Language Centre and (3) Putonghua Education and Assessment Centre. The 2000-square-foot area, with a capacity of approximately 60 persons, is equipped with basic equipment such as computers and television sets, and is perfect for small-scale academic seminars.
