Flying colours in USFHK competitions

HKMU students are putting in great efforts in the sporting arena. Despite the University's limited physical resources, our student athletes are defying limits and achieving impressive results in different fields. President Prof. Paul Lam Kwan-sing showed his support to the students by personally attending some of the competitions.

In the Annual Aquatic Meet, Tsang Pak-ho came in second in two individual 50-metre races — Freestyle and Butterfly — and bagged his third silver medal together with fellow Swimming Team members Chow King-him, Ma Wing-sum and Phoebe Cheuk Yuet-ying in the Mixed 4 × 50-metre Freestyle Relay. Later on, runner Cheng Cheung-hung secured another silver medal in the Men's 100-metre event at the Annual Athletic Meet, while the Dragon Boat Team was placed fourth in the Small Boat 200-metre Mixed Championship at the 1688 USFHK Dragon Boat Competition.

In the Karatedo Competition, Wong Sui-kei captured second place in the Women's Kumite +61kg final, whereas Lai Chun-yu was the bronze medalist of the Men's Kumite –75kg event.

Championship at Hong Kong Streetathon

At Hong Kong Streetathon 2023 last December, Lau Chun-wai, captain of the University's Men's Cross Country Team, overtook fellow runners and finished as the champion in the 21-kilometre Half Marathon. The passionate runner has won various races, including the second runner-up of the 5-kilometre Run of the UNICEF Charity Run 2023.

HKMU Cricket Team placed third overall in Joint University Sixes

The HKMU Cricket Team, initiated by the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration in an effort to promote cultural exchange and inclusion, participated in the Joint University Tapeball Cricket Sixes for the second time in November 2023. After two exciting matches, they entered the Plate Final and won, standing in third place overall among eight local tertiary institutions.

Excellence in management studies

Two recent business graduates were recognised by professional bodies for their academic achievement in their respective specialisms. One of them was Vicky Chen Linying in Global Marketing and Supply Chain Management, who was awarded the prestigious HKIM Marketing Graduate of the Year badge by the Hong Kong Institute of Marketing (HKIM). The other was Chan Yu-ching in Real Estate and Facilities Management, who received the Best Student Award from the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Asia Pacific Branch.

Shining in community fundraiser

Not only do HKMU business students stand out professionally, but they also demonstrate admirable creativity and solidarity. In the ACCA Community Day 2024, an event that raised funds for local charities, students of the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration's A-Team participated enthusiastically either as part of the rickshaw team or the cheering team. With costumes created from garbage bags to raise recycling awareness, they came first in the Outstanding Costume Awards. They were the second runners-up in the ACCA Chairman Tertiary Cup rickshaw race as well as for the Outstanding Cheering Team Award.
