[eNews] Activities Bring HKUST EMBA Alumni Closer Together

The graduates of the HKUST EMBA program are building a close-knit and expanding network through different activities both in Hong Kong and mainland China.

In May, 42 alumni took part in the 2018 Gobi Challenge. They crossed the boundless desert and endured the relentless sun within 4 days to complete a 112-kilometre race on foot.  The race allowed EMBA students from different classes and years to become friends and form stronger bonds.

With strong team spirit, the HKUST team set a new record by completing the journey in an average of 10 hours 50 min and 36 sec. Our School was ranked No.23 among the 44 participating schools. They also received multiple awards including the “Shackleton Award” to recognize that all members completed the race and also another award to acknowledge a video the team produced for the race.

Meanwhile, more than 30 HKUST EMBA alumni got together on campus on 2 June to attend the 4th HKUST EMBA Alumni Association Inauguration Ceremony. The newly inaugurated association has been formed by alumni across 12 cities and seven districts in China. Underpinned by three core values with a focus on “cohesion”, “breakthrough” and “respect”, the association seeks to build stronger links to better serve the program alumni across different regions.

Vice-President for Institutional Advancement Professor Sabrina Lin, Dean of Business School Professor Tam Kar Yan, and Associate Dean Professor Xu Yan joined the ceremony. They hope for a closer connection that the association can develop with the University and School, including future collaboration and cooperation. Members of the association and other alumni were also invited by Acting President Professor Shyy Wei to an event held at the Crown Wine Cellars on 3 June to discuss the future development of the school.
