FBE Mentorship Programme 2019-20 empowers students
The Kick-off Ceremony of Faculty of Business and Economics Mentorship Programme 2019-20 successfully took place on 23 October. We were delighted to welcome a record high of mentors with diversified business background, most of whom are alumni, friends and supporters of the Faculty, as well as about 70 student mentees to embark on this year’s mentorship journey.
Professor Hongbin Cai, Dean of Business and Economics kick-started the event with a warm welcome to our mentors and mentees. He expressed gratitude to mentors for their generous support to the Faculty over the years, and hoped mentees this year could get the most out of the programme.
Three young alumni Mr. Udara Senevirathne (BEcon&Fin 2017), Senior Officer – Business Development, New World Development Company Limited, Mr. Teddy Chiu (BBA(Acc&Fin) 2018), Analyst of Accenture and Ms. Natalie Law (BBA 2019), Analyst of Citi Private Bank, who had previously participated in the Mentorship Programme as mentees had shared their career insights and study tips with current students.
The Faculty strives to provide opportunities for students to connect with the real business world. Mentoring is especially valuable in empowering students by sharing of mentors’ knowledge and experience, encouragement and inspiration. Through regular mentoring sessions in the academic year, we believe students can gain professional and personal developments.
