An exciting learning opportunity at Hangzhou in this coming winter break is now available for you!


With the support by the Ministry of Education of Mainland China, our Faculty is offering the Zhejiang University (ZJU) “Entrepreneurship in China” Winter Programme 2018-19. This programme will be held in one of the most dynamic areas of private economy in China – Hangzhou, from December 26, 2018 - January 9, 2019 (15 days).


About the Programme

The aim of this programme is to enhance students’ understanding on entrepreneurship in China by providing first-hand experience through living and learning in Hangzhou. The programme comprises formal classroom lectures, class discussions, company visits and cultural tour. The lectures provide students with business knowledge from diversified perspectives of being an entrepreneur in China, such as marketing, innovation, entrepreneurship, business model and so on, which lead students to build up an entrepreneurial way of thinking. Visits to local firms enable students to know more about the business environment in Hangzhou and have a deeper understanding on doing business in China. Students can have a chance to experience the internet culture and explore the city during their free time in Hangzhou.


Students participate in this programme will be enrolled in a ZJU course “Entrepreneurship in China”, which is equivalent to an MGTM3415 Principles of Entrepreneurship (6 credits) in HKU. Students who have successfully completed this course in ZJU will have 6 HKU credits being transferred back. Please note that only the credits will be transferred back but not the grade. In other words, the grade obtained from this course WILL NOT be counted towards your CGPA.
