Hilda Lau BBA Accountancy 2010

Hi all CB Alumni! I'm currently pursuing master's studies in Toronto after 10 years of extensive financial planning & analysis in various multi-national companies (Adidas, Ralph Lauren etc). I would say you're never too old for things that you want to achieve. Nice meeting you all and hope all of you stay safe and peaceful.

Katrina Li BBA Accountancy 2018

皆さん、 こんにちは!私は晴美です。 I graduated from the Department of Accountancy with a minor in Japanese studies. I used to be an auditor working in a Big Four firm and have now switched my field to taxation in another Big Four. Since the peak tax season has not yet arrived, recently I have been catching up on my Japanese studies during Covid-19 time by watching Japanese dramas and writing short articles in Japanese. (I really missed the days studying Japanese at CityU with Kobe Chan Sensei, Keiko Sensei and Heidi Law Sensei!) In my spare time, I also do product trials and post product reviews on my Instagram. Please feel free to check out my public ig account: katrina_kt0218 and show some support! If you are also obsessed with Japanese Culture, welcome to chat and share the happiness with me.

Joyce Yeung EMBA 2022

After graduating in Canada, I came back to Hong Kong to start my career in the banking industry. I served several institutions including banks, insurance institutions as fund accountant, management accountant and FP&A analyst etc., and covered businesses such as trustee, retail lending, retail banking and corporate banking. I selected CityU EMBA programme, because of its compact classes which allowed me to meet leaders in different industries and become a member of a close-knit group of learning partners.

I would like to give my deepest thanks to Dr John Leung and Dr Michael Wong for offering me the opportunity to be a member of the CityU EMBA family; and my family for their constant support and backup.

Tommy Leung BBA Information Systems 2012

After spending a few years in London and completing my MBA, I have decided to move back to Hong Kong to accelerate my career, shifting from the traditional capital markets to work on fintech strategy as a Vice President at J.P. Morgan. Although the time in the UK, not only working in London but also studying in Cambridge, was incredibly amazing, life eventually came to a point of wanting to take a step forward albeit without a solid life plan. My take on the move is never to fix yourself into the plan but to be agile to live with the plan that is best for you at the moment. Be prepared and be agile to live in a fast-growing world.

Ben Lam EMBA 2021

Recently I have been taking on new challenges at work. I became the first COO of Hyakunousha International Limited ( 華御結). Also, this summer, I was appointed as a part-time lecturer in the MSc Marketing programme at CityU, responsible for Strategic Retail Management.

Since last year, I have been fortunate enough to be involved in music creation as a lyricist for TV shows and pop songs. I wrote the lyrics for the Hong Kong Open TV show Where Does She Go? ( 姐姐去哪兒) under the pseudonym Heyben. In the future, everyone will hear my works in major media.
