Hyejung Chang, dean of the School of Management, and Yeujun Yoon, head professor of business administration at Kyung Hee University (KHU), led a group of more than 20 students to visit the University of Macau (UM). During the visit, Yonghua Song, rector of UM, met with Chang and Yoon. The two parties engaged in discussions on exchange programmes and cooperation between the two universities. In addition, KHU representatives held in-depth discussions with representatives of UM’s Faculty of Business Administration (FBA), Global Affairs Office, and Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) on student exchange, postgraduate education, joint training of students, research collaboration, as well as the training of students and faculty.
The nine-day training programme was jointly offered by CCE and the Business Research and Training Center of FBA at UM. Students from KHU attended lectures on special topics on Macao business and economy given by FBA professors. They also visited the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship as well as the Gaming Laboratory of the Institute for the Study of Commercial Gaming to learn about UM’s entrepreneurial support for students and related teaching facilities. Additionally, they visited the Pavilion of China-Portuguese-speaking Countries Commercial and Trade Service Platform, the Macao Government Tourism Office, and other organisations in Macao. Through the lectures and field visits, the students gained more insights into UM’s learning environment and campus facilities, as well as the development directions of different sectors in the context of Macao’s economic diversification.
