Recipient of Beta Gamma Sigma Highest Honor Chapter

The Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) has recognized the HKUST BGS Chapter as a Highest Honor Chapter - the highest level of recognition that a chapter can earn.

Qualifying for this highest honor is indicative of a campus where academic excellence is highly valued and where the faculty of the chapter work diligently to enhance BGS’s stature on campus.

As part of the recognition, the School has earned a Global Leadership Summit Registration Scholarship for students, which provided an exceptional opportunity for two students to join the BGS Global Leadership Summit on November 1-4. Two outstanding students Julia Leung and Tiffany Yu were nominated to join the Summit in Chicago.

“The Global Leadership Summit is a valuable learning experience to me not only because of the knowledge I have gained, but more importantly the people I have met,” said Tiffany. “Under the theme of “Ethical Leadership”, we joined a series of inspirational sharing from business and academic leaders around the globe. Most of the topics revolved around innovation and professional development.”

“With more than 300 students around the world, it was a great opportunity for us to engage with peers form other top business schools,” Julia added. “I myself have expanded myself and made friends who came from Vietnam, Thailand, Canada and the US.
