The architect of our future: HKU Business School students swept 4 awards at ACCA Hong Kong Business Competition

Two teams of HKU Business School students won four awards at the ACCA Hong Kong Business Competition 2020-21, including 2nd Runner Up, Digital Excellence Award, Research Excellence Award and Merit Award on January 23, 2021.

Themed “Rewiring our future: leading digital innovation and sustainable success”, the competition required students to design a campaign, project or product for the selected industry, and to share their vision and ideas on a business model in a world of uncertainties, creating sustainable value with public interests at heart.

Aiming at nurturing students with a blend of accounting and business knowledge alongside values of social responsibility, ACCA launched this annual competition since 2007. Students benefit from a broad range of skills training workshops and coaching from the ACCA fellow members, to enhance their analytical, proposal writing and presentation skills.

Sharing of the team:
ACCA Hong Kong Business Competition encourages students to leverage technology to grasp business opportunities. Since ACCA is advocating “inclusion”, it also hopes students be able to think of business ideas that make a positive social impact.
Throughout the competition, we had submitted our business proposal, a three-minute video about our business idea and a PowerPoint for the final presentation.

The experience broadened our business horizons. We had vivid discussions with the coach – ACCA member Mr. Derek Hui, Planning & Production Control Manager, HAECO Hong Kong and learned more about how the business world works. We also became more socially aware as we dug deeper into our business ideas targeting ethnic minority students.

The team “ARthlete” receives Merit Award and Digital Excellence Award
