I am part of the newly formed HKU Trading Club as a member of the portfolio team. Starting from early next year, we will start conducting research on various topics of interest. I look forward to learning about conducting equity research and acquiring useful skills together with the other members. Hopefully, we will be able to equip ourselves with the skills needed to succeed in the financial industry.
HKU is home to the oldest university boat club in Hong Kong. Established in 1981, the multi-award-winning University of Hong Kong Rowing Club is a top contender in the city. While the highly competitive club demands commitment from its athletes, it also offers honour, prestige and friendship in return. Recruitment for the club takes place in September and October.

The Business and Economics Association (BEA) is one of the largest non-profit, student-run societies at HKU. Founded in 1976, the association is a forum for all BBA, BEcon, BFin, and BSc students to connect with prominent local and international business institutions and communicate with the HKU Business School. BEA has brought together more than 100,000 business students since its inception.
Founded in 1999, the Hong Kong University Students’ Union Philharmonic Orchestra (UPO, HKUSU) promotes music appreciation both on campus and within the broader community. The non-profit, student-led organisation gives young musicians a platform to practise classical music alongside a devoted group of peers. The 80-strong orchestra’s Spring Concert in April and Annual Performance in November are highly anticipated events on the campus calendar.
HKU’s innovation and entrepreneurship centre iDendron is at the heart of the University’s commitment to supporting ideas that mobilise impact. Launched in 2017, the hub connects students across disciplines to bring innovative ideas to life and incubate early stage start-ups. The facility provides workstations, hot desks, meeting rooms, workshops, and networking opportunities with business leaders in Hong Kong.
