University of Macau

Summary
The University of Macau (UM; Universidade de Macau; ) is a Macanese public research university. The UM campus is located in the east of Hengqin Island, Guangdong province in Mainland China, on a piece of land leased to the Macau SAR government, and is under the jurisdiction of Macau. With the approval of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, UM has established three state key laboratories, namely State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI, State Key Laboratory of Quality Research in Chinese Medicine, and State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City. The Faculty of Business Administration of the University of Macau becomes the 99th in the world and the first triple-accredited business school in Macau to be accredited by the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), the Association of Accredited Business Schools International (AACSB) and the Association of Master of Business Administration (AMBA) in 2020. The predecessor of the University of Macau (UM) is the University of East Asia (UEA), a private university founded in March 1981. In the beginning, the majority of the students came from Hong Kong. In 1988, the Portuguese Macau government acquired UEA through the Macao Foundation and renamed it the University of Macau in 1991. It was located in Taipa. In 1999, the sovereignty over Macao was transferred to China. The new Judicial Regime of the University of Macau and the new Charter of the University of Macau were officially passed at the Legislative Assembly of the Macau SAR and came into effect in September 2006. In 2009, China authorised Macao to exercise jurisdiction over the new UM campus located on Hengqin Island, Guangdong province. On 20 December 2009, then Chinese President and General Secretary of the Communist Party Hu Jintao officiated at the groundbreaking ceremony for the new campus. In early 2013 the Macau Legislative Assembly passed Law 3/2013 providing for the application of Macau Law in the campus effective on opening day.
