The Faculty of Business and Economics is committed to fostering the development of its approximately 4,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students, who represent over 20 nationalities, and training future business talents and scholars for meaningful, globally-oriented careers.
Established in 2018, the Faculty’s Career Development and Training Team is dedicated to supporting students by providing world-class career services at the business school level, which models top US business schools by offering exclusive careers support and opportunities to business students.
The team assists students in various ways:
- Company Engagement and Outreach:
We are fortunate that many leading companies in various industries continue to be interested in employing our students. We are grateful for that. Much of our time is spent engaging with companies and assisting with their recruitment initiatives. To do this, we organize a variety of on-campus and off-campus recruitment events with our corporate partners and remain in regular contact with them to facilitate their hiring needs. The launch event, "Investing in HKU Business School's Global Talents - Pitch & Catch" is one of our signature programmes.
- Career Training & Preparation:
We also run a series of training workshops that help students with the basics of career preparation such as CV writing, interviews, and assessment centers. Additionally, we also routinely conduct talks and practitioner sharing sessions that expose students to industries, different types of roles, and opportunities in rapidly developing fields such as in fintech or AI.
- Student Advising & Consultation:
Our team also invests significant time in advising students in individual and small group settings regarding career direction and questions that they may have when exploring different career paths.
