    Alumni stories


    A family of OUHK alumni

    Sun Gang
    Master of Business Administration

    Sun Gang, his wife and son are more than just a family. They are also all alumni of the OUHK, having completed the postgraduate business programmes jointly offered by the University and its mainland partner institutions. Sun Gang's wife was the first in the family to study with the OUHK, pursuing a Master's Degree and later recommending it to Sun Gang's son. The two graduated in 2008 and 2010 respectively.

    Sun Gang himself enrolled in a Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme launched by the OUHK in partnership with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in 2009, and graduated in July of this year.

    photo Despite the fact that he was already very experienced, Sun Gang hoped to upgrade his qualifications and acquire new knowledge through the MBA programme. He also found that the OUHK's programme suits the needs of senior mainland executives.

    Sun Gang said that one of the challenges was to figure out the best way to study for the MBA programme, which involves a substantial number of case studies in the learning materials, and requires active thinking, drawing reference to work experiences, and the use of one's personal judgment. As part of his administration and management role at the China Machinery Enterprise Management Association, Sun Gang has to conduct evaluations of corporations. He has found his MBA training useful in helping him to carry out his duties.

    Sun Gang believes that the OUHK, in offering flexible and open education, provides a suitable platform for learning families and learning organizations. His family's experience is just one good example.


    Martial arts spirit and academic study

    David Lau Siu-kwong
    Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resource Management

    David Lau Siu-kwong's aspirations for higher academic qualifications never faltered despite his tight work schedule as a fire-fighter. He managed to complete his Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resource Management degree last year, even though it took him 12 years to do so. David is currently the Station Commander at Mong Kok Fire Station. A Thai boxing and martial arts enthusiast, he was once taekwondo champion at the Hong Kong Open Tournament and is now an instructor for the Hong Kong Wushu team. On the Alumni Homecoming Day on 6 November, David put on a martial arts performance at the invitation of our Alumni Affairs Office.

    photo David said the martial arts spirit is about persistence and dedication, which has been the guiding force in his life. It is this guidance that has driven him to continue pursuing his studies. He firmly believes that he can influence our younger generations by setting a good example.

    While pursuing his business administration studies, David has enjoyed the interactive learning atmosphere at the OUHK. As most of his classmates are working adults, their discussions have mainly centred on real case scenarios encountered across a broad spectrum in both the public and private sectors. As such, the classmates have learnt a lot from each other with this sharing of different ideas. David also feels that the online Discussion Board was particularly useful in facilitating the exchange of views among fellow students.
