The Way To Success Programme (TWTS) is a holistic programme with both training and mentoring elements, organized by CEO Global. Since 2004, more than 18,000 university students from 27 leading universities around the world, have completed TWTS.

The aim of TWTS is to encourage HKBU students to prepare themselves to serve the society and community after their graduation.  Apart from technical skills and academic knowledge learnt from university, soft skills / transferrable skills have been becoming more and more important in today’s workplace. The senior professionals would share their successful story and inspire our students in different ways.  Students are therefore expected to prepare themselves better to achieve their personal and career goals. 


The objectives of TWTS are:

  • to equip students with better skills for achieving their personal goals;
  • to enhance their soft skills for their future career development; and   
  • to inspire students’ personal and career aspiration from their lecturers/ mentors.


Programme Structure

The programme included five modules delivered by six to seven experienced professionals as lecturers / mentors. It also included intensive group discussion, interactive activities and mentoring. Each module lasted for 3 hours and the trainings were held on five Saturdays. Below table lists the five-module training tailored to HKBU students.
