Jointly organised by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School’s Undergraduate Office and the BBA Alumni Association, the Undergraduate Mentorship Programme 2022-23 Kick-off Ceremony was successfully held on 29 October 2022.

This year, 69 alumni signed up to mentor 114 current students from all 11 programmes. In the coming year, these students will receive one-on-one coaching and guidance from the mentors on their personal and professional development.

Professor Lin Zhou, Dean of CUHK Business School, kick-started the ceremony with a welcome remark. “My tribute is to you, our committed alumni. Your wealth of experience and support is valuable to help the new generation to rise and shine,” said Professor Zhou. “To the mentees, the part you play is equally important. Be ready to inspire your mentors with your passion and aspiration for the future.”

During the experience sharing session moderated by Dr Fred Ku, Associate Dean (Undergraduate Studies), Mr CS Chang, Executive Chairman of Key Direction Limited and an ardent mentor since 2015, shed light on the keys to building a successful mentoring relationship. The dialogue was joined by his mentees, Wiratama Kurniawan (IBBA 2022) and Jack Su (IBBA Year 3).

Also addressing the event was Ms Angela Fung, Vice-Chairperson of Mentorship & Membership, CUHK BBA Alumni Association, who highlighted the enormous benefits of mutual learning between alumni and students.

Mentors were also presented certificates as a token of appreciation by CUHK BBA Alumni Association’s Chairman Mr Raymond Lo and Dr Fred Ku.
