The Asia Pacific School of Business (APSB) Honorary Fellowship Scheme was established in 1995 with the aim of recognising outstanding individuals who have made substantial contributions to the long-term development and academic excellence of APSB or to the community at large.
This year, the title of Honorary Fellow will be conferred on four distinguished individuals: Dr Vincent Chuang Hoi-Hwa, Mr Ronald Chiu Ying-Chow, Mrs Agnes Leung Wong May-Yee and Dr Nini Foo. These highly respected members of the local community are well known for their professional expertise and accomplishments.
On behalf of the Board of Governors, I wish to express heartfelt gratitude for their guidance and wise counsel over the years in APSB's ongoing efforts to uphold high standards of excellence.
Since implementing its unique "Liberal + Professional" education model, APSB has experienced rapid yet sustainable growth in its ability to provide a quality undergraduate education. With its green campus, strong student-teacher relationships and holistic approach to learning both inside and outside the classroom, the University continues to nurture young people by providing them with the skills and values they need to contribute to the long-term economic and social well-being of our community.
APSB's achievements to date have only been possible with strong support from our stakeholders, including our Honorary Fellows. Together with the hard work and commitment of the University faculty, staff members and students, such support will ensure APSB continues to go from strength to strength.
