HKUST-SKOLKOVO EMBA for Eurasia – First Module in HKUST (Jan 2019)


The first cohort of HKUST-SKOLKOVO EMBA for Eurasia came to Hong Kong the first time for their 3rd module of the program this month! This 10-day module provided the class an opportunity to experience on-campus student life in the program’s second home campus, besides Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO.


Attending lectures from our renowned faculty, Prof Tai Yuen Chen, Prof Larry Franklin, and Prof Caroline Wang, students developed and strengthened their skills and knowledge needed to succeed in Eurasia. The evening seminars by Prof Jack Lau and Prof Egor Pereverzev also equipped them with better understanding of digitalisation and business negotiation in China.


Apart from classroom learnings, students were given an opportunity to visit three leading innovative technological companies in China: Tencent Holdings Limited, Da-jiang Innovations, and Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd, and meet the senior executives for first-hand sharing and exchange. They left Shenzhen with new inspirations!  

 

Study is important, so do fun and cultural experience. Prof Steven J DeKrey, Associate Dean of HKUST Business School and Chairman of International Academic Council of Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, hosted a cocktail reception at his on-campus residence to welcome the class. Students had also spent a great night at the Hong Kong Jockey Club Happy Valley Racecourse enjoying the unique equestrian performance sport like the locals. Given a rare opportunity to see the Unicorn Hakkan Dance demonstrated by the Joint Association of Traditional Hakka Unicorn in Sai Kung and Hang Hau Hong Kong, students went home with wonderful memories to share with their families and friends!
