HKU Business School Mentorship Programme 2021-22 Empowers Students
The Inauguration Ceremony of the HKU Business School Mentorship Programme was successfully held on 11 November 2021. We were delighted to welcome a record high of mentors with diversified business background, most of whom are alumni, friends and supporters of the Faculty, as well as 80 student mentees to embark on this year’s mentorship journey.
Professor Hongbin Cai, Dean of HKU Business School kick-started the event with a warm welcome to our mentors and mentees. He expressed gratitude to mentors for their generous support to the Faculty over the years, and hoped mentees this year could get the most out of the programme.
Three young alumni Mr. Tony Au (BFin(AMPB) 2021), Private Banking Analyst, HSBC, Ms. Gigi Kong (BBA(Law)&LLB 2020), Strategy & Operation Analyst, Deloitte Consulting, and Mr. Udara Senevirathne (BEcon&Fin 2017), Senior Officer – Business Development, New World Development Company Limited, who had previously participated in the Mentorship Programme as mentees had shared their experience in the mentorship programme, and their tips on how to maximise the programme outcome.
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Faculty of Business and Economics (HKU Business School). The Faculty strives to be a leading, globally impactful academic institution of business and economics and provide opportunities for students to connect with the real business world. Mentoring is especially valuable in empowering students by sharing of mentors’ knowledge and experience, encouragement and inspiration. Through regular mentoring sessions in the academic year, we believe students can gain professional and personal developments.
