To enhance international partnerships and strategic collaborations with global prestigious universities, Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) joined the delegation led by UM Rector Yonghua SONG  (宋永華校長) to visit several top universities in South Korea and Japan.

Strategic Partnerships in South Korea

FBA, represented by Prof. Raymond Chi Ho LOI (雷智豪教授), Associate Dean (Research and Development), and Prof. Amy Siu Ian SO (蘇小恩教授), Assistant Dean (International and External Relations), visited six universities in Seoul including Korea University, Ewha Womans University, Sungkyunkwan University, Kyung Hee University, Yonsei University, and Hanyang University. Discussions were held on student exchange, faculty members’ visits, and future research collaborations. FBA representatives also visited the School of Business of Ewha Womans University and Hanyang University respectively and made more in-depth idea exchanges at the faculty level. The visited universities expressed their desire to tighten future cooperation.

Strengthen Ties in Japan

In Tokyo, the delegation visited Sophia University, Waseda University, Keio University, University of Tokyo, and Teikyo University.  The visits aim to strengthen the existing relationship as well as establish new collaboration opportunities between these universities and UM in the areas of research, student exchange, and faculty exchange. For example, opportunities for having joint training programmes in integrated resort and tourism management have been explored. FBA anticipates more positive outcomes from these visits, contributing to the internationalization of business education in the Asia-Pacific region.
