Programmes Meeting Society’s Needs

HKMU always keeps a finger on the pulse of society’s needs. We continue to review, update and enhance our programmes to include the latest knowledge and skills required by you and future employers, and we offer these at various levels through our seven schools focusing on distinct disciplines and areas of expertise.  

Professional Recognition

HKMU’s programmes are recognized locally and internationally.  Our creative arts programmes have won a deserved reputation as an impressive training ground for young talent. Graduates of our business programmes are granted exemptions from qualifying examinations at all major local and international business professional bodies, while those of education and language studies are granted full qualification as language teacher. We produce qualified practitioners in nursing and physiotherapy, and our science and technology programmes have been tailored to industry requirements and are accredited by professional bodies.

Internships and Early Industry Engagement

We have 2,000 – 3,000 local and overseas internships for our undergraduate students every year.  Among the internship options are two tailor-made programmes in Vietnam and Shanghai launched in collaboration with the Hong Kong Young Industrialists Council and Hong Kong-Shanghai Youth Association respectively. Other example is our Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration’s partnership with the Federation of Hong Kong Hotel Owners to provide internships for students of the Hospitality Management programme.

Cross-cultural Immersion

We organize a wide selection of overseas exchanges and study tours to furnish students with the opportunities to live and learn with people from various cultural backgrounds. Some opportunities are open to all while some are for students of specific Schools or programmes. For example, School of Education and Languages has arranged its students to take the summer English Language and Cultural Immersion Porgramme at the University of Warwick.  Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration has launched for all its full-time undergraduate students a compulsory Global Immersion Programme, under which short placements at prestigious universities in countries such as the UK, the US, Australia and Japan for study and sightseeing are arranged.

Opportunities to Participate in Competitions

Another spur for encouraging students to broaden their horizons, build self-confidence and gain practical understanding of their areas of interest is competitions. We support students in competing at local, regional and international levels, enabling them to demonstrate their brilliance in different areas of learning, from academia to sports.

Entrepreneurship Development

Our Student Affairs Office runs MetroChallenge, a university-wide programme, to unleash students’ creativity, cultivate their entrepreneurial skills and help them translate innovative ideas into viable operations for profit-making and for social good. The programme is linked to a business proposal competition which grants seed money and incubation support to winning teams.
