I had a joyful and meaningful evening with my City University of Hong Kong (CityU) Doctor of Business Adminstration (DBA) alumni and learning partners from cohort 2006 to 2021. I shared my experience to prepare, write and publish a business case on a global basis.

I am so grateful that I have successfully published my case for #HSBC in the world’s largest business case publisher – Ivey Publishing. The case is now globally accessible by all major business schools worldwide through #Ivey Publishing and #Harvard Business Publishing networks.

The topic of my case is – HSBC: Embracing Open Innovation for SMEs. Please find out more here https://lnkd.in/eYUHfTFp. Thank you so much for HSBC teams, my mentor Professor Hubert Pun and many others to fully support this case and make this dream of mine realized.

My drive to share my experience with my fellow DBA friends was that I would like to encourage them to write more cases so that our valuable experience from Hong Kong can be shared with our new generations as well as all executives worldwide.

We do not have enough local cases for our next generation to learn from. Also, not too many leaders in other countries know our Hong Kong best practices and stories. If every DBA, not just DBA from CityU but also PolyU, HKUST, etc. writes a case, we will have hundreds of cases known to the world in a few years. Let’s action, learning partners.

Appreciate all my learning partners joined my sharing session on site and online tonight. We should do more and I will be the audiences of yours next. Thanks Queenie from CityU and Candi from my team to make all arrangements.

Welcome to our two new cohorts of 2021 and 2020 #CityU Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) learning partners. We had a welcome dinner last night for all of them. It brought back a lot of memories for my #DBA journey. I started this journey back in 2008 and gratefully received my DBA degree a few years later. Time flies.

With this empowerment and blessings, we are contributing to our industries, societies and research of interests. Thank you. Appreciate Professor Ozer, supervisors, DBA supporting teammates and many unsung heroes in our families and networks to make our dreams come true.

For our new learning partners, it is going to be a relatively long journey with quite a few ups and downs. However, it is going to be rewarding, fruitful and impactful. You can see the photos that I shared here. It will be a happy ending for sure with lots of joys, knowledge, wisdom and friends made then. So, keep it going, hang in there, and you will make it just like what we had gone through and eventually achieve our goal.

Add oil DAVID Chung Tai-Wai (2021), and your LPs and Alvin Leung (2020) and your LPs. We will be there for you in your DBA journey.

If you haven’t started the journey of DBA, will you do it in some point of your career? More about CityU DBA here https://lnkd.in/gX4ej_Yw.
