A resounding success - HKUST Virtual Information Day 2020

HKUST’s first-ever virtual Information Day was held last Saturday (October 17, 2020). Over 7,000 local and 1,000 international participants paid a virtual visit to our beautiful campus, mingled with our admission officers and student representatives in the booths, and attended live sessions. The event was a resounding success!

The Business School was of great interest to the public, with nearly half of the registrants indicating interest in our program offerings.  Over 1,000 attended our live admission talks, and 1,800 attended our ten program talks, all of which featured live Q&A  with our dedicated faculty, energetic students and passionate alumni. Participants walked away with fresh insights, a holistic picture of the Business School, the admissions requirements, and what the programs of their choice have to offer.

The virtual Information Day platform will be available for 6 months until March 2021. Additionally, all recordings of our admission and program talks are available for your perusal at the Business School’s website.
