The Way to Success Workshops and Mentorship Programme*

This programme is held in collaboration with CEO Global Education Foundation during the second semester (most often from January to April) of each academic year, offering a series of workshops to all students and mentorship from HKU alumni and successful leaders and executives.  Students can learn from seasoned leaders and executives, engage in interactive workshops, enjoy small-group and 1-to-1 mentorship, and develop life skills for long-term personal and professional success.  The Way to Success is for students who hope to better equip themselves to achieve their personal and professional goals. In particular, students who aspire to leadership will benefit greatly from it. 

The programme covers a variety of topics including: The Way to Success, Life Management, Job Application & Mock Interview, Trust & Integrity, Servant Leadership, Impactful Solutions to Social Issues, Relationships & Conflict Resolution, Cultural Intelligence & Global Mindset, Failing Forward and Career Development.
