    The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) launched a new research institute today to bolster research in international business and governance that will generate innovative ideas for local businesses and for the betterment of Hong Kong.

    The research focus of the Institute of International Business and Governance (IIGB) is to provide data-driven insights and advice to government bodies for public policy making.

    Housed under the OUHK’s Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration, the Institute also aims to nurture talents for developing application-oriented research projects to meet the practical needs of the Hong Kong business sector. This is one of the University’s five research institutes established by the funding from the Research Grants Council.

    Under the Institute, two research centres, namely the Centre of International Business and Centre for Responsible Business, have been set up to foster research development in four strategic areas:
    - Big data analytics in international business;
    - Outward foreign direct investment;
    - ­Globalization and governance; and
    - Spiritual orientation, ethics and management.

    Today’s inauguration ceremony was officiated by the Non-executive Chairman of MTR Corporation Limited Prof. Frederick Ma Si-hang; Deputy Chairman of OUHK Council Mr Silas Yang Siu-shun; OUHK President Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong; and Dean of OUHK Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration Prof. Alan Au Kai-ming.

    Addressing the ceremony, Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong said that the OUHK has made great efforts in recent years to drive research that has a clear applied focus to enhance teaching and transfer knowledge into practical use. He pointed out that IIBG has been organizing different research activities to share the research outcomes and the latest business trends with various parties including academics, students and the public.

    “Around this time in 2017, IIBG will be holding its first international conference with the theme ‘Competing in an Innovation-Driven Global Economy: Institutions, Infrastructures, and Organization Design’ here at OUHK, which will be a great opportunity to bring together academics, professionals, and experts from different parts of the world as well as government officials to deliberate on this important theme,” Prof. Wong added.

    Following the ceremony was a public lecture entitled “How to Embed Sustainable Thinking in Corporate Strategies of Government-owned Public Companies in Hong Kong” given by Prof. Ma at which he shared with participants his years of experience in corporate management.

    In addition to holding academic conferences and research workshops, IIBG has invited six renowned international scholars to be the Institute’s Distinguished Professors. They will visit OUHK regularly to share their research findings and experience with the staff of the University and serve as mentors of young researchers, providing them with valuable guidance and professional advice. The six Distinguished Professors are:
    - Professor of International Human Resource Management of the Middlesex University Business School, London, Prof. Yochanan Altman;
    - Professor Emeritus of Business Administration of the College of Business, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Prof. Joseph Cheng;
    - Professor of International Business and Innovation of Leeds University Business School, Prof. Mario Kafouros;
    - Professor of Computer Science of University of Nottingham, Prof. Graham Kendall;
    - University of Waterloo School of Accounting and Finance Prof. Jeong-bon Kim; and
    - Professor of Finance of University of East Anglia, Prof. Raphael Nicholas Markellos.

    The Institute will also send academic staff to participate in various international conferences and academic activities to broaden their horizons and explore opportunities for collaborations to support the University’s long term research development. The insights and intelligence gained could then be shared with students of the University. IIBG is also considering to set up a third research centre related to entrepreneurial opportunities in response to latest business trends.
