The Institute for the Study of Commercial Gaming (ISCG) at FBA was established in 2003 as a not-for-profit gaming research and development organization.
As a faculty unit with the mission to contribute to the healthy development of the gaming industry, the ISCG took the initiative to launch a research study on responsible gambling (RG) in 2007 and developed an RG model unique to Macao and the Chinese Society.
The Business Research and Training Center (BRTC) was founded in 1992 as an integral part of the Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) of the University of Macau. It is a platform to fulfill the mission of FBA. It aims at providing a platform to promote multidisciplinary business and management research internationally as well as becoming a training and development source for organizations in Macau, Greater Bay Area (GBA) and beyond.
BRTC has two main agendas: to provide world-class multidisciplinary research in business and management area and to provide training for professionals and civil servants and consultancy service. Our core functional areas of business include but not limited to: Accounting and Finance, Financial Management, Corporate Governance, Banking and Wealth Management, Business Economics, Business Intelligence and Data Analytics, Strategic Management, International Business, Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and Digital Marketing.
The CTIRS, formerly the Centre for Career and Research Advancement in Integrated Resorts, was established in 2018 by the Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) at the University of Macau (UM). The primary objectives of the CTIRS include the provision of a platform at the FBA, through which the UM will support the efforts of the Macao Special Administrative Region (MSAR) Government of China to establish Macao as a world-class tourism and leisure centre (WTLC) in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA). The UM will also use the platform to promote communication with other local higher education institutions for related projects. The support provided by the Central Government of China to designate Macao as a tourism education and training base in the GBA will allow the scope of activities undertaken by the CTIRS to expand over time in line with the development of the GBA.
