Overseas Summer Programmes
Enriching students' global perspective

To live up to our motto of Nurturing Ethical Leaders with Global Vision, the School of Business has been encouraging our students to experience the world via a prolonged summer programme. While this aligns with our mission, employers in Hong Kong reflect to us in various occasions that they see enhanced competitiveness in graduates with overseas experience.
