The University of Macau (UM) Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) and the Business Research and Training Centre of UM’s Faculty of Business Administration (BRTC) jointly held a training course on Business and Management for 39 students from Guangzhou Institute of Science and Technology during May 6 to 10. We received positive feedback from students.

The five-day training course consisted of a series of lectures delivered by UM professors. The course covered many themes and gave the students a good understanding of business and management in Macao. Moreover, students joined campus tour and also visited Currency Museum and Thomas Reuters Trading Room in FBA. The students expressed that they gained a lot from the training course.
