alumination@Singapore: Asia Economic Briefing

As the annual signature ‘alumination’ event, the Asia Economic Briefing held on June 1, 2016 was a spectacular success and set a record as the largest HKUST alumni event ever held outside of Hong Kong.  Our alumni association HKUSTAA Singapore Chapter (HKUSTAASC), attributed the success to three factors; great speakers from The Economist and INSEAD, great collaboration with the School and other alumni associations, and increased engagement from HKUST alumni based in Singapore.

With 130 participants from 10 major business schools attending, it was also an opportunity for HKUST to further increase its brand recognition with alumni from the world’s best business schools.  As a result of this event, we managed to get enquiries for further collaboration on events from other alumni associations such as Columbia, Oxford, Kellogg, INSEAD, NUS and Nanyang.

We would like to thank Sean Ferguson, Yvonne Li, and Priscilla Wong from the Business School for their strong support!

HKUSTAASC is a diverse community and has over 250 members.  We are one of the most active alumni associations in Singapore and we are helping to increase the prestige of HKUST and expand social and professional networks for our alumni.  We welcome all alumni based in Singapore to join our group on Facebook or LinkedIn, just search for HKUST Alumni Association Singapore Chapter.
