Graduates of the Master of Science in Marketing and Consumer Psychology programme.

On 3rd and 4th of December 2015, at the 41st graduation ceremony of Hong Kong Shue Yan University (HKSYU), 49 students from four programmes were awarded Master’s degrees and 19 students were awarded the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology.

The Master’s degrees and the Postgraduate Diploma were conferred by Professor HU Yao-Su, Provost of HKSYU.

There were 16 graduates from the Master of Social Sciences in Counselling Psychology, 15 from the Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies, 11 from the Master of Social Sciences (Transformation of Chinese Societies), 7 from the Master of Science in Marketing and Consumer Psychology.

Mr. WU Pak Ki, 42, is one of the graduates of the Master of Science in Marketing and Consumer Psychology. He told a reporter of the Newsletter that he is a member of teaching staff in a higher education institution, and held a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Marketing) from Hawai’i Pacific University. A few years earlier, he had decided to strengthen his knowledge in business and marketing and began to research the different programmes provided by the local universities. Finally, he made up his mind to apply for Shue Yan’s Master of Science in Marketing and Consumer Psychology programme.

“The programme covers traditional areas in marketing as well as consumer psychology. I think it is more practical and interesting.” Mr. WU said.

Mr. WU said the programme and lectures were good, classmates were friendly and helpful, and the overall learning experience during his two years of part-time study was delightful. But he recalled that when the programme began, he found some difficulty in academic writing since some professors assumed that all students had already acquired the knowledge and skills in writing academic articles. After he raised this question with the professors, they gave thorough guidance to students and he was quickly back on track.

The graduation ceremony of the MBA programme was held on 4th December. The University of Louisiana at Monroe (USA) has offered the MBA programme at Hong Kong Shue Yan University since 1979. Dr. Donna LUSE, Associate Dean of the College of Business and Social Sciences of the University of Louisiana at Monroe, conferred the degree upon three graduates.
