In response to the great demand for business leaders with experience in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), CUHK Business School is devoted to nurturing our students’ entrepreneurial spirit while helping them to become more conscientious about and committed to fulfilling their social responsibilities. Our students are also trained to develop commercially sustainable business plans while taking the environment, community and stakeholders into account.
CUHK Business School organises courses, competitions, and other activities, such as overseas service trips, to expose the students to the dilemma of maximizing financial returns or upholding social and environmental ethics. Some prominent activities are highlighted below:
Overseas Service Trip
CUHK Business School encourages students to serve the community by participating in volunteer service. We organised several overseas service trips in the past years to cultivate a sense of social responsibility among business students. Our service trips provide opportunity for participants to understand the needs of socially vulnerable groups from different parts of the world.
Recent Overseas Service Trip:
Service Trip to Shaoguan in December 2018
A group of 20 CUHK business students joined a 5-day service trip to Shaoguan, Guangdong. Hosted by Shaoguan University, the trip served as a platform for students to learn about Lingnan Culture, to explore the natural wonder Mount Danxia and to experience volunteer teaching in a rural area. Participants are able to extend their network by exchanging thoughts with local students.
