Extensive Support for Starting Entrepreneurial Adventure
CUHK Entrepreneurs Alliance links students with a vast network of CU entrepreneurs and investors by offering talks, mentorship, events and more.
CUHK Alumni Torch Fund is committed to strengthening students’ competitive advantages and exposure to entrepreneurial opportunities through providing informative exchange platforms for students, alumni entrepreneurs and investors.
Students aspiring to have their own startup can tap into the PI Centre’s wealth of incubation, entrepreneurial and business support to realise their innovative dreams.
The CUHK Shenzhen Research Institute’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Hub (InnoHub) is dedicated to transferring and converting the research outputs of the University to become startup companies in the Shenzhen area and to cultivate the formation of CUHK’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
InnoPort is the gateway for knowledge transfer at CUHK. Our comprehensive support and services enable our cocreating community of students, faculty members, alumni and industrial partners to “export” their impact to Hong Kong and beyond.
CUHK has been an indispensable ally in our startup’s growth journey. From startup visits and entrepreneurship competitions to professors, classmates and alumni who have started their own businesses, support and resources have always been close at hand. We based our startup at CUHK’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Hub at CUHK’s Shenzhen Research Institute, and received exceptional support and connections on the mainland. We have since raised US$15 million in Series A financing, and expanded our business to Indonesia.

Hear what our alumni say about their experiences:
INFINITI Motors internship
I joined INFINITI Motors Limited as a member of the Global Connected Car team in the summer of 2016. These days where everything from mobile devices to streetlights are part of a global network in the Internet of Things, cars provide a unique way for us to interact with the world around us. Big data mined from a network of cars can help to predict traffic jams or recommend a popular restaurant based on your travel preferences.
Privé Financial internship
Between February and June, I did a part-time internship at Privé. They are an innovative Fintech provider of wealth management services in the cloud and a boutique software development services company aimed at the financial sector. The internship allowed me to experience the dynamic Hong Kong workplace and realize how different and exciting it is compared to my previous experience in Canada.
Casetify Limited (formerly Casetagram) is the world’s 3rd largest tech accessories firm (2nd in U.S) with its Headquarters in Silicon Valley and Hong Kong.

Peace Field internship
M&A is the area that I wish to explore for my long-term career. When MBA Career Management and Alumni Engagement Team published, in the regular Job Alert, an internship vacancy at Peace Field Limited, a boutique financial advisory firm specializing in M&A and fundraising, I gladly jumped at the opportunity.
The interview process was not without challenges. Apart from seemingly relaxing chats with the CEO and two MDs (which they tested……
Thanks to MBA Career Management and Alumni Engagement Team, I was able to connect with Pivotal, a striking start-up software company, and got the opportunity to take up this summer internship at their product strategy department. With a close relationship with EMC, Pivotal Software, Inc. is based in Palo Alto, California and we provide software and services for the development of custom applications for data and analytics based on cloud computing technology.

Working for the largest private army on earth has been a privilege and interesting turn of events. Like all industries, on the outside there is not much to see except in G4S’ case, security guards and valuable goods transport trucks all over the city. Being on the strategy team that is fairly new and an upcoming department to modernise classic service lines is quite innovative yet challenging. Think of it as a team of consultants trying to propose a new strategy to a military command unit.
adidas Group internship
Passion is everything. Impossible is nothing. My love for sports requires that I mostly exist in an ambience in which everything is a sport. More than half of the real estate in my dorm was dedicated to the sporting equipment. At school, I was best known for activities related to (sports) club and clubbing. Here, I’m back to continue my long standing relationship with my favorite sports brand: adidas.
If you wish to switch your career track in the same or similar industry, combining your previous experience with the skills taught in CUHK MBA programme and relevant qualification will give you an advantage in job hunting. I believe that the MBA programmes and Career team can help you to pursue a career path that could endorse your quality and professionalism.
WRise Wealth Management (Hong Kong) Limited
I am glad to be one of the CUHK full-time MBA students as CUHK Business School has a proud alumni network and career team often provided professional career development coaching services as well as industry sharing resources. This program allowed me to further explore myself and my career aspiration which helped to accelerate my career growth.
ZA Bank Internship
I would like to highlight that Career Management & Alumni Engagement team has helped me in assigning me a leading industry practitioner as my mentor. The abundant alumni engagement activities arranged by the team has also enabled me to network with alumni from different industries. The internship introduced by the team has allowed me to connect with professionals in fintech as well as banking industries.
Merck Pharmaceutical (Hong Kong) Limited
Whenever I received interview opportunities, Career Management & Alumni Engagement team were more than happy to schedule a mock interview session with me and provided valuable feedback on my interviewing skills. With their help and efforts, I succeeded in landing a summer internship offer in DBS Bank HK and a full-time position in Merck after several rounds of interview.
