Professor Wei Kwok Kee is the Dean of the School of Continuing and Lifelong Education (SCALE) at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Prior to his NUS appointment, Prof Wei was a Chair Professor of Information Systems at the College of Business at the City University of Hong Kong. He was Dean of the university’s College of Business from 2007 to 2012 and the Head of the Department of Information Systems from 2002 to 2007. He is Fellow of the Association of Information Systems (AIS) and he was the President of that Association in 2003/4. He has been awarded the AIS LEO Award for Lifetime Exceptional Achievement in Information Systems during ICIS2016. Before his stint with City University of Hong Kong, Prof Wei was Professor and founding Head of the Department of Information Systems at NUS. As Head of two major IS Departments in Asia (NUS and City University of Hong Kong) in the past decade, Prof Wei has developed a strong research culture and initiated major research efforts that resulted in both Departments being placed among the top 15 IS departments worldwide (Communications of the AIS, 2005, pp. 555-564). He has also introduced major curriculum reforms that aligned the degree programmes in both Departments to AIS guidelines, thereby raising the international value of these programmes. Prof Wei has served as Senior Editor of MIS Quarterly and Associate Editor of Information Systems Research. He has also played major roles in ICIS and PACIS. As an excellent educator, his doctoral students have attained placements in good universities worldwide. Prof Wei has published more than 200 journal and conference papers. Based on Scopus, his works have been cited over 5620 times and his h-index is 35 (as at June 2016).
