Student Affairs Office Career and Internships Career Coaching Date a CEO; Be a CEO


The Student Affairs Office (SAO) of the Hong Kong Metropolitan University (HKMU) and the Hong Kong Young Industrialists Council (HKYIC) have cooperated for many years in the field of student development. In addition to co-organizing the “YIC x OUHK Internship Programme in Newly Industrialized Country – Vietnam” since 2017, we also jointly organized different industry sharings and local internship projects, which to provide students with diversified development opportunities and allow them to have a deeper understanding of Hong Kong's industrial development.
To this end, SAO proudly launches the “Date a CEO; Be a CEO” Mentorship Programme, on the one hand, to strengthen the cooperation with HKYIC, and at the same time, to encourage our students to learn from the leaders of the local industry in a more lively and diversified way. Students can understand different kinds of management knowledge and be cultivated to become future management talents with a macro vision.
