Jointly organised by CUHK BBA Alumni Association and CUHK Business School’s Office of Undergraduate Programmes, the Undergraduate Mentorship Programme 2018-19 was successfully kicked off on 13 October 2018. This year, 120 mentors from various sectors and 169 current students have participated in the programme. 110 out of 169 mentees were the new cohort from Year 1 and Year 2, who were committed to make the most out of their early years in university.

At the event, Prof. Kalok Chan, Dean of CUHK Business School and Wei Lun Professor of Finance thanked the mentors for their unfailing support and encouraged students to learn from their mentors who were seasoned professionals across various industries. He was pleased to address that the admitted mentees this year represented a diverse student mix from all programmes.

Followed was the panel sharing by two remarkable alumni ─ Mr. Adrian Tam, General Manager and Head of Sales and Business Development at Octopus Cards Limited and Mr. Percy Leung, Assistant Secretary for Security at the HKSAR Government, who have been serving as mentors for 6 years and 10 years respectively. Adrian, Percy and their mentees Stephanie Au (IBBA Year 3 student) and Veronica Ling (HTMG 2012 alumna) shared tips on how they maintained a sustainable mentoring relationship. Both senior mentors advised that attitude is the key. Mentees are recommended to be proactive to connect with their mentors and devoted to the programme so they could gain the most out of the mentoring relationship.

This year, Year-2 BBA-JD student NG Yee Yan was awarded the CUHK BBA Alumni Association Scholarship in recognition of her academic achievement and outstanding performance in leadership and social services. Mentors were also presented certificates as a token of appreciation by President of CUHK BBA Alumni Association Mr. Raymond Lo and the Dean.

Since 2008, the Mentorship Programme has been an indispensable part of the undergraduate curriculum that brings a social dimension to the classrooms, and provides one-on-one coaching and guidance to help students with their personal and career development. Each pair of mentor-mentee is matched based on the mentor’s preference and expertise as well as mentees’ career interests.

 

 

本科生學長計劃讓同學與商業社會緊密聯繫


由中大商學院本科生校友會及本科課程辦公室合辦的2018-19年度本科生學長計劃,已於2018年10月13日正式啟動。今年,合共120名來自各行各業的學長和169名同學參與計劃。在169名學員中,共有110名來自一、二年級的生力軍,他們立志善用大學初始階段全力投入學習。

在啟動禮上,中大商學院院長兼偉倫財務學講座教授陳家樂教授感謝學長們的不懈支持,並鼓勵同學向他們多多學習,因為一眾學長早已晉身為其業界的專業精英。此外,他欣然宣佈本年度錄取的學員組合多元化,涵蓋所有課程。

隨後,大會邀得兩位傑出校友進行分享,分別是八達通卡有限公司營業及市務部總經理譚堅先生,以及香港特區政府保安局助理秘書長梁兆燾先生,他們擔任學長已分別達六年和十年之久。譚、梁二人聯同其學員區煒瑩[工商管理學士綜合課程三年級生]和凌紫燕[酒店及旅遊管理學學士課程2012年畢業生],分享雙方能夠維持長期輔導關係的技巧。兩位資深學長均表示態度是至關重要,建議學員主動跟學長聯繫,從而在輔導過程中取得最大收穫。

今年,工商管理學士及法律博士雙學位課程二年級生吳懿欣,獲頒發中大商學院本科生校友會獎學金,以表揚其在學業、在領導力和社會服務方面的傑出表現。此外,中大商學院本科生校友會會長盧偉成先生聯同陳院長向學長們頒授證書,以示感謝。
