Welcome Back to HKUST Business School – Fall 2021


Dear SBM Students,

Welcome back! At the beginning of this new academic year, I am very delighted to see you again! 

For the most part, we will resume normal teaching and learning activities on campus. Despite some new regulations and guidelines you have to closely observe for the health and safety of the HKUST community and yourself, your new phase of learning journey at HKUST will enable you to benefit again from different learning activities and interactions with peers on our beautiful and environmental friendly campus. 

The start of our new academic year also includes welcoming a highly diverse mix of 13 new faculty from around the world. To welcome them, and all students on the first day of School, we have arranged an online SBM Welcome and Orientation on August 31, and a “Welcome Back to School” green gifts giveaway campaign on September 1. (Check out the video and photos to share the excitements)

Stay safe and stay connected! Together, let’s make our campus as enriching, rewarding and safe as ever.
