Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to reveal and compare the characteristics of the facilities management (FM) education programs in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea (i.e. the Four Asian Dragons) and makes suggestions for their future development.

Design/methodology/approach

A team consisting of academics from the Four Asian Dragons held a face-to-face meeting to discuss and define the scope and framework of the review, followed by an extensive search to identify literature and information germane to the study. Individual parts of reviews, prepared by the team members for their respective places, were cross-reviewed before refinement and consolidation into the current paper.

Findings

The term “facility (or facilities) management” appears in most of the programs reviewed, but terms such as “environment” andproperty” also appear in some programs’ titles. The programs reviewed range from certificate level to doctorate level; those between diploma level and master level are more common. Most of the programs have obtained professional accreditations, but some are accredited by FM-related rather than FM-specific professional bodies.

Research limitations/implications

Further research should investigate issues such as the performance of the programs reviewed, extent to which they have met the market needs and how they compare with the counterparts in other regions (e.g. Europe, America). For such research, the process of the study reported here and its findings about the status quo of the programs can serve as references.

Practical implications

To strengthen FM as a well-established discipline, it is imperative to have the programs accredited by FM-specific professional bodies.

Originality/value

Providing the first-ever international review on the major FM programs in Asia, this paper is useful to program planners, educators and researchers in the FM field.

Abstract

China is currently the fastest growing economy in the world. This paper discusses the current state of property management in Shanghai and reviews the challenges and opportunities for facility management in this city. In particular, it focuses on the embryonic role of FM resulting from the changes that are taking place in attitudes, both at the corporate and government level. It considers issues arising from personal observation of, and visits to, companies in Shanghai, and discussions with professionals in the property management sector in China. It describes typical property management provision in Shanghai and the growth in the importance of training for property management as part of the growing recognition of the significance of facility management in China. However, it concludes that until the property management industry fully matures it is unlikely that facility management will be widely practised for some time.
