Conferences and Forums
First-Hand Exchanges with Top Business Thinkers
Conferences and forums provide a means for HKBU Business School to reach out to the business community while offering students a chance to be exposed to the latest thinking regarding topics of particular relevancy to today’s business education.
We also make use of Hong Kong’s unique position as a leading global financial centre and its close relations to China to address issues specifically related to China’s economic emergence.
Signature Event the World Business Ethics Forum
The World Business Ethics Forum, a bi-annual event co-hosted with the University of Macau since 2006 that attracts prominent delegates from around the world, is the School’s signature business event. Lying at the confluence of the academic thinking and corporate realities that define the future of business, the reputed forum addresses fundamental issues affecting all businesses globally, such as corporate governance, accountability, ethics and corporate social responsibility.
Other Events Connecting Influencers and Innovators
Besides the World Business Ethics Forum, the School became the first member university in Hong Kong admitted to Principles for Responsible Management Education (“PRME”), a distinction recognising our dedication to integrate universal values into our curriculum and research.
We also host an array of events in partnership with business leaders, academic thought leaders and professional bodies from various industries on a wide range of topics, such as public policy seminars like, “Hong Kong’s Electricity
Future: Lessons from the US market reform experience” and the Corporate Governance Forum Series.
We also conduct a high profile annual Pay Level Survey that comprehensively details trends in compensation and employment outlook in Hong Kong, the PRC and Macau. The survey is widely used by the city’s human resources departments in setting up their overall compensation policies.
