The Chinese government’s One Belt, One Road

promoting economic cooperation and transnational

establishment of infrastructure and trade links

Mr Sachin Tipnis, Executive Director of

HKU’s MBA programme finds its edge in collaborations with
leading business schools, leveraging the strengths of each
organisation to provide a global networking platform and
curriculum representative of real-world dynamics.
The intensive 14-month programme is unique in offering
students the opportunity to study in four of the world’s key
finance hubs. It begins with a one-month China immersion
course in Beijing, followed by nine months of core and
elective subjects with an Asia focus in Hong Kong. In the final
four months, students complete elective subjects with an
international business focus at London Business School,
Columbia Business School, or Fudan University in Shanghai,
depending on their chosen track.
The success of these partnerships has led to the launch of a
joint EMBA programme between HKU, London Business
School and Columbia Business School, providing the HKU
MBA community global reach, access to leading business
schools around the world, and valuable international alumni
networks.

understanding their aspirations, and learning more about refugees myself.

Following a decade as HKU's Dean of Student Affairs, Dr Albert Chau reflects on
Many HKU students see service learning as a
fundamental social responsibility of a learned
university student, applying their knowledge and skills
to contribute to a better and more caring society.
how HKU enriches its learning through community service. HKU has always made
serving the community an integral part of our students’ learning experience. Back in
1950, the HKU Students’ Union established the Social Service Group to serve
underprivileged people in Hong Kong and China. In 1995, the Students’ Union went

MEANINGFUL
on to create the China Education Association – a registered charity providing
financial subsidies, classes and tutorial groups to students, while renovating
schools in remote villages in Mainland China. When HKU celebrated its centenary in
2011, the SERVICE 100 scheme was introduced to connect hundreds of HKU
scholars with community service opportunities, making significant impacts on
societies around the world.
To enhance the inclusion of service learning in HKU curriculums, the University’s
faculties and departments have increasingly incorporated experiential learning
methods into their teaching activities. More recently, HKU students have initiated
and driven multiple social enterprises to tackle the UN’s set of Sustainable
Development Goals and Millennium Development Goals to help put an end to
poverty and hunger, support gender equality, combat climate change, and promote
fair trade. HKU has also sponsored our students to attend conferences such as the
United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, and the Clinton Global
Initiative in Florida.
Service and learning at HKU are two sides supporting the same coin. Through
community service endeavours, the University fulfils a commitment to improving the

living conditions of underprivileged communities, particularly in Asia, while realising
its vision of nurturing responsible future world leaders.
INSIDE STORIES

Many HKU graduates continue to contribute their talents and knowledge to serve
Expanding empathy in Hong Kong
I took part in a one-month summer programme organised by the
Society for the Welfare of Autistic Persons. Volunteers are paired
up with a child with autism or down syndrome to act as their buddy
for the month. Our responsibilities included helping the children
with their holiday homework, assisting with outings and classes,
and disciplinary control. The unique experience gave me the
chance to understand the kids, talk to their parents, and learn how
to communicate with people living with these conditions.

underprivileged groups beyond their university years. One example is Beyond the
Wall, formed by young HKU architecture graduates and students, which improves the
learning environment at schools in Nepal through the installation of stimulating
outdoor teaching devices. Another is Launchpilots, which was established by Chung
Jah-ying, a graduate of the prestigious Bachelor of Business Administration
(International Business and Global Management) degree programme. One of 11
start-ups supported by Swire Properties in 2015, Launchpilots connects university
student event organisers with sponsors in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
