It is also a great leap forward from the programme’s 15th position in the last three years (2005–07). Of all the independent programmes in the Asia-Pacific, CUHK’s EMBA Programme has been ranked top from 2003 to 2008 for six years in a row. And its alumni’s salary is the fifth highest in the world. The programme is not only a uniquely Hong Kong programme, it is also offered by a business school that is one of only two in the top 11 that adopts a bilingual medium of teaching (the other being Instituto de Empresa in Spain). ‘We are very pleased with the encouraging result. Ours is the first EMBA programme in Hong Kong, and a truly made-in-Hong Kong product. The programme’s success is, therefore, Hong Kong’s success,’ said Prof. Andrew C.F.

Barry, she said, had made her understand that it is not necessary to conform to the mainstream. Her Swedish roommate Emma also encouraged her to follow her heart and try to make a difference to the world. Thus inspired, Yaki decided to devote her career to local or regional development for a better world. Upon graduation, she worked for an international consultancy firm where she helped to organize seminars by development specialists and world-class leaders. She is also thinking of pursuing a master’s degree in development studies.

Up to 2008–09, over 60 CUHK students have received the scholarship. ‘T here is no fixed formula in life.’ It was these words from Barry, the English teacher of Yaki Wo ( above ) at the University of Toronto, that motivated her to pursue her dreams. A fresh graduate of the School of Journalism and Communication, Yaki was one of the 25 CUHK students who received the Li & Fung Scholarship to go on exchange in 2007–08. At the first Fung Scholars Leadership Conference held on 4 October, she shared with over 120 Fung Scholars how the exchange experience had changed her life. our ability to nurture world-class management talent to meet the needs of Hong Kong, the mainland and the region.’ 獎學金改變人生路 A Life-Changing Journey
