Mun, the two former EMBA Directors, who made significant contributions to the EMBA programme under their leaderships over the years. They set a good and solid foundation for the programme to move forward. I also heartily congratulate EMBA Class of 2018 for their great success in career advancement after 3 years of their graduation. Their unfailing support has also made significant contributions to the encouraging ranking result CUHK EMBA achieved in 2021! As always, ranking is not our foremost pursuit. What is important is to maintain our ability of nurturing top-notch management talent for the betterment of the business community and society. We integrate Chinese Wisdom with Western Knowhow to prepare our students and alumni for challenges of tomorrow in this ever-changing world.”
