HKBU High Table Dinner



With the generous donation from Tin Ka Ping Foundation, the Office of Student Affairs is launching a series of High Table Dinners aimed at instilling and inspiring students with a multi-dimensional experience in developing perspectives in a formal dining atmosphere.

Students will be provided invaluable opportunity to meet about 40 potential employers including leaders from commercial organisations and the community. Prestigious speakers will share valuable experiences regarding societal and career experiences, life insights and ambitions. 

With the precious opportunity to communicate with employers and experience in solemn events, students may broaden their insight and develop their perspectives contributing to their growth, career and life planning.
