Greater Bay Area Interim Camp expands students' business view

In January, the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration held a four-day Interim Camp in the Greater Bay Area (GBA) for Year 1 students. During the trip, they visited renowned corporations, such as EY, Tencent and SenseTime, gaining valuable insights into their operations. The students also had a chance to interact with the academics and students from Shenzhen University and explore traditional Hakka culture through visits to local attractions.

Finance and Financial Technology

I remember visiting Tencent WeStart on the first day, where I learnt about the high incentives the startups were given for their innovative development in the GBA and had a chance to simulate the process of starting up a company, including deciding on the product or service and the marketing strategies. We also joined a soft skills training workshop with students of Shenzhen University, which helped me sharpen my communication skills and expand my social network.

Sustainable Tourism and Hospitality Management

I was most impressed by the visit to the Space Science and Technology Institute (Shenzhen) as aerospace technology is not something we easily encounter in Hong Kong. Through an exhibition and virtual reality (VR) experience, I learnt about the structure of rockets, the preparations before launching a spacecraft and the life of astronauts in space. Moreover, I noticed that many large enterprises will introduce various initiatives to support the growth of SMEs and new industries, promoting the business development of the GBA.
