HKU and People’s Government of Futian District Sign a Strategic Partnership Agreement

The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and the People’s Government of Futian District in Shenzhen have signed a partnership agreement. The two parties, through HKU Business School, will leverage on HKU’s advantages in talent development, research and innovation, and global influence to create a benchmark model of integrating teaching and learning, facilitating industry-academia collaboration and developing talent mobility between Shenzhen and Hong Kong. The partnership will accelerate the integration of Hong Kong with the rest of the Greater Bay Area, contributing to the long-term economic development of the two regions.

With its unique positioning of being deeply rooted in Hong Kong, fully engaged with China and truly international, HKU Business School aims to establish a world-leading platform for teaching and learning, as well as innovative research to create a global talent pool. Under this agreement, the School plans to open a Shenzhen Campus in Futian District by early 2022. Adopting a “One School, Two Regions” model, the 10,000sqm campus will provide ample space for HKU students, alumni and partners to carry out interactive teaching and learning activities, encouraging research discussion and ideas exchange on entrepreneurship.

Serving as a financial centre, Futian District is centrally located in Shenzhen. Its financial technology industry has begun to take shape, gaining a competitive edge in the globe.  Futian has a solid foundation in integrating industry with teaching and learning, as well as research, which is favourable to the development of a new university model that emphasises “multi-campus, immersion and advancement”. Looking forward, the University will work hand in hand with the government of Futian District to continuously explore collaboration potential in financial technology (FinTech) in hope of contributing to the development of FinTech industry in Mainland China and the rest of the world.
