CityU team triumphs in PMI Hong Kong Chapter Project Management Case Competition

“Smart People Consulting”, a team of six CityU Business students, won the Best Project Award in the PMI Hong Kong Chapter Project Management Case Competition 2021-2022.

The competition was organised by the Project Management Institute (PMI) Hong Kong, with 300 students from nine local universities entering the competition and attending training sessions in December 2021 and January 2022. Then, 178 students formed 36 teams and submitted project proposals and project plans, as well as reflections on how they applied project management skills to manage the competition project. Eventually, eight teams, including three from the CityU College of Business, were shortlisted to present their projects to a panel of six judges in April 2022.

Smart People Consulting from CityU impressed the judges with the effective use of project management skills and knowledge. Members of the winning team include:

Marco Chan, BBA Information Management
Tony Chong, BBA Accountancy
Chloe Choy, BBA Finance
Natalie Ling, BBA Business Economics
Christy Ma, BBA Accountancy
Kammy Wong, BBA Marketing

Team leader Natalie said, “This was a really valuable experience. It gave me the chance to lead a team using project management tools that I learnt in earlier workshops. I'd like to say a big Thank You to all team members who overcame challenges with effective communication and teamwork.”

The team will be presented the award at the PMI Hong Kong Chapter Annual Congress 2022.
