Summer scholarships expand international opportunities for CBE students

CBE students bound for HK on summer scholarships

27 April 2017

Australian National University (ANU) College of Business and Economics (CBE) students Georgina Ringler, Meng Qin and Yi Xin (Catherine) How have each received a scholarship to study at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) Summer Institute.

The scholarships, offered by CBE in partnership by HKU, were open to students participating in CBE’s Global Business in Asia program; an intensive four-week academic program that takes place between June 26 and July 21 2017 during the ANU winter break.

Director of Engaged Learning at CBE, Dr Vinh Lu, said, “We received more than 80 applications for these scholarships and were exceptionally impressed by the quality of the applications put forward by Georgina, Meng and Catherine. The Global Business in Asia program at HKU is outstanding and I am sure our students will make the most of their time in Hong Kong and Shanghai.”

Comprising of two weeks in Hong Kong and two weeks in Shanghai, the Global Business in Asia program provides students with the opportunity to gain insights into the contemporary global business environment in an Asian context through academic courses, group projects, visits to reputable corporations, guest speeches by industry leaders, as well as historical and cultural sightseeing tours.

CBE Associate Dean (Education), Dr Bronwen Whiting, said, “We are incredibly excited to be able to partner with HKU to offer CBE students this amazing opportunity, and we thank HKU for co-funding these scholarships.

"This is an exciting program, and we will be very keen for the successful students to share – with us and their fellow students – some of the insights they gain into the business environment in Asia.”

The scholarships cover academic program fees for two courses, all accommodation in Hong Kong and Shanghai, facility access at the University of Hong Kong and return airfares from Hong Kong to Shanghai.

“Business acumen and understanding towards a culture are not something that you can fully develop in the lecture room,” says scholarship recipient, Meng.

“Through living and learning in two of the most vibrant cities in Asia, this program is a perfect platform for me to immerse myself into the local culture and to truly experience the business environment.”

For Georgina, the scholarship and program provides an opportunity to expand her knowledge of the Asia-Pacific market.

“The majority of Australia's key business partners are in the Asia-Pacific reason and so it’s increasingly important that students and graduates are able to engage with, be more informed on and have the skills required to work with international companies and economies,” she said.  

“I think the skills and experience of this scholarship are invaluable and can only add to further studies and work opportunities.”

It’s a position reiterated by fellow recipient, Catherine, who clearly sees the benefits of CBE’s international networks and approach to education.

“This a wonderful opportunity for me to expand my horizon and to develop myself holistically to be an ANU graduate who makes a difference to the global community.”
