Deepened partnerships with industries

The University and Yau Lee Holdings Limited signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 16 January to nurture more outstanding professionals in the construction industry through student internships and placements, academia exchange, applied research and knowledge transfer.

The Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration (B&A) also signed memoranda with five organisations separately. The first was an MoU with the Institute of Financial Technologists of Asia (IFTA) and the Institute of ESG & Benchmark (IESGB) in November 2023 to offer student internship and mentorship programmes, corporate and entrepreneur sharing, and visits to relevant enterprises. In the same month, B&A signed another MoU with Kingkey Family Office to promote environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) investing and impact investing. The collaboration included the compilation of the Forbes China Outstanding ESG Asset Management / Multi-Family Offices 30 List.

In December 2023, B&A signed MoUs with LALIGA and Hong Kong Hotels Association (HKHA) respectively. The MoU with LALIGA highlighted an important collaboration in the development of a dual Master's Degree programme in global sports management and marketing. This programme will not only be the first of its kind in Hong Kong, but also LALIGA's first dual degree programme. The joint effort with HKHA aimed to encourage continuous development and lifelong learning among practitioners, including through the development of a new Master's programme at HKMU.
