Department of Mathematics and Statistics
Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Data Science and Business Intelligence (BSC-DSBI)
The BSC-DSBI is the first degree programme offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The Programme emphasises the consolidation and integration of two areas of knowledge and understanding, namely, Data Science (DS) and Business Intelligence (BI). The ultimate goal is engaging students to data and business analytical skills that improve and optimise decisions and performance of business operations, also equipping them to be fully capable of identifying and solving business problems.

Research and Scholarship
The Department has a team of experts in various research areas such as data mining, statistical modeling, asset management, option pricing, actuarial science and risk management. Our faculty members are active in academic research and frequently publish their research outputs in top-tier journals, and we have been actively participating in a wide range of externally and internally funded research projects, particularly the Research Grants Council’s Competitive Research Funding Schemes.
Teaching and Learning
In addition to the modules offered to our BSC-DSBI students, the department also provides modules to students in other Degree and Associate Degree Programmes to develop their analytical skills, in particular, to make use of mathematics and statistics to deal with business-related problems. Moreover, our Department will offer mathematics and statistics modules as part of general education for all students at HSMC in the near future.
