Academic Week 2016 (Aweek) was successfully held from 24th October to 27th October.

This annual event, organized by the Department of Business Administration, is the premier academic event for both the university and the department. The business world is ever-changing. Continuous learning is therefore essential for every talented candidate. Aweek is a platform for students to learn from prominent guests including business professors from local universities, and senior directors from major companies. These activities and help BA students integrate business theory and practice. At the same time, they have face-to-face communication and interaction with those industry leaders.

Academic Week has always been greatly supported by celebrities and successful entrepreneurs from different business fields. The theme of Academic Week 2016 was “A Quest for Refined Leadership” (蛻變更新 潛能盡展).

The idea of the theme is taken from the transmutation process of insects. Teenagers face a lot of difficulties, frustration, challenges that they need to pay much effort and costs to overcome as if the life cycle of butterflies. In the 21st century, unprecedented changes in the global economic system have created significant challenges for business. In this rapidly changing environment, young leaders who would like to become outstanding leaders must also undergo the process of ‘transmutation’ and value-addition.

At the opening ceremony, we had the honour of inviting Mr. SUN Tak-kei, David, BBS, JP, Director of Audit, Professor WONG-IP, Susanna C.P., Director of Bethel Pastoral Counseling Centre, Bethel Bible Seminary, Mr. John LO, Chief Financial Officer of Tencent Group and Dr. LIU Kwong Sun, Hon. Clinical Associate Professor (Department of Psychiatry, The University of Hong Kong). They shared their experience and opinions in “transmutation”, including how they countered the changes in life, how they deal with psychological pressure and mental distress. Students could learn the way of changing the stumbling blocks in their life into stepping stones so that they can become influential leaders in the future. During the forum our guests shared their point of views and had an in-depth, multi-perspective discussion on “The Quest for Refined Leadership” (蛻變更新 潛能盡展), thereby giving students tips on fulfilling their potential and preparing themselves to be better candidates in today’s rapidly changing business world and workplace.
