To start the year of 2017, the Alumni Association invited our alumni back to campus on April 1st, to join a wonderful BBQ Buffet at the Conference Lodge. Over 40 alumni and students joined the activity. Professor Chu Zhang, the Acting Head of Department of Finance and Professor Jialin Yu, MScIM/FA Academic Director were both with us on this special night. The open setting of the dinner allowed participants to go around, to join different tables and to meet with other participants. Complimented with the hotel’s wide variety of gourmet food, our alumni had a great time spending the night together and shared their fond memories with fellow alumni, students, and faculty members.
MScIM/FA Weekend BBQ Dinner
MScIM/FA Annual General Meeting cum pre-Christmas Celebration Dinner
As the year of 2016 coming to an end, it was time to plan and welcome the future. On December 16th, a beautiful Friday evening, we held our annual general meeting at a nice and elegant Thai restaurant in Central. Both the Acting Head of Department of Finance, Professor Chu Zhang and the MSc program staff were there with the alumni that night. Despite having a nice dinner together, a vote on the new committee body was done. With recent graduate from the program, Kyle Wong, elected as the new president, he and his team would lead the association in the next two years. They presented the plan for 2017, which includes multiple social gatherings, out-door funs, networking and career oriented workshops. After all, it was a great night spent among friends and the HKUST family.
