The Way to Success Workshops and Mentorship Programme


This programme highlights interactive, insightful workshops on how to achieve success in both career and life, and in-depth experience sharing from speakers and mentors.


“I am very lucky that I could be selected to join this programme last semester (2015). I have been inspired a lot by the speakers and mentors! The most impressive moment for me was how Peter (one of the speakers) showed us the meaning of servant leadership. Peter allowed 2 of our classmates to walk on him. The trust between the classmates and Peter was very strong. This lets me know that building trust is very important to be a successful leader.”

Cross Cultural Consulting Program


Cross Cultural Consulting Program (CCCP) is a 5-day intensive real business consulting assignment. Participants will be given challenging tasks provided by real companies regarding actual business topics or innovative business schemes.


"What CCCP has offered is a chance to work in a cross-cultural context. Building good team dynamics is my main takeaway from CCCP. Recognizing the diversity we hold and understanding individual strengths and weaknesses would be the key to achieving “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. I strongly encourage you to grasp what could possibly be the chance of a lifetime."

Singapore Internship Programme


At the beginning of the summer break, third-year Government and Laws student, Phelia Au joined the Singapore Internship programme organized by Health Maintenance Medical Practice Limited (HMMP) and Hong Kong Singapore Business Association (HSBA). This programme is designed to broaden the students' horizons by giving them an opportunity to explore every aspect of the increasingly competitive country, Singapore.

During the six-week internship, Phelia worked at Mr. Chung Ting Fai's law firm whose clients include the Government of the People’s Republic of China. Through looking into cases involving Chinese citizens who need legal advice in Singapore, Phelia learnt more about the cultural clashes between Chinese and Singaporean societies which are faced by many new Chinese immigrants.

With the guidance of a senior lawyer, Phelia gained exposure to Singapore’s legal system and insight into its rapid economic and social development. She was able to experience the real life of a lawyer by taking instructions from clients, attending pre-trial conferences, hearings and trials at different levels of court, and even meetings with clients in prison! Apart from the legal aspect, Mr. Chung Ting Fai also shared the importance of networking for a lawyer and took Phelia to different events such as business breakfast meetings, cocktail parties and the HSBA Entrepreneurship Forum 2015.

The entire internship was truly fruitful and rewarding. Phelia gained not only practical work experience but also invaluable friendships with other Hong Kong interns from different universities.

Intern with Founder (startup internship)


“My scope of work in a charitable start-up this summer was wide – from office administrative work to conducting business development research, from visiting the disadvantaged children to attending meetings with big firms etc. By encountering people from diverse backgrounds with different stories, I learnt the vivid social gap in society, the importance of humility, also the significance of having passion and determination in what you do. I would truly, whole-heartedly recommend any of you who wish to immerse yourself in Hong Kong’s start-up scene by joining a start-up internship.”

Startup internship


“I was the summer intern at Wild At Heart, a French digital marketing startup in Hong Kong. As a journalism student, my job duties range from researching, writing and editing a variety of articles, guides, company websites and social media posts. It genuinely took a strong command of the language to engage in professional writing in English. This part of my internship enables me to realize what I lack and what I have to work harder on in future to become a multilingual contributor. The best thing to work at a startup is that the founder would value your ideas and inputs though you are just an intern.“
