HKU International Case Society (HICS) is recruiting members for the academic year 2021-22.
Established in September 2012, HICS is the only international case society in HKU. It is an exclusive student group formed on a selective basis that aims
to provide fundamental training in business analysis, presentation and case cracking, etc. to the HKU Business School undergraduates who show interest
and exhibit strong potential in case competitions.
In order to nurture students' essential skills for joining case competitions, HICS provides Year 1 to 4 students with unique, specialised training sessions
from experienced trainers and opportunities to join local and global business case competitions.
A recruitment talk was held online on August 26, 2021 to provide more details of HICS and introduce its upcoming activities to students. You may view the archive as below:
