Prof. Martin D. F. Wong, Dean of Faculty of Engineering, CUHK and Mrs. Eunice Chan, Chief Operating Officer of Hang Seng Bank signed a memorandum of understanding for collaboration between the two parties on 9 December 2019. This perfectly demonstrates the synergy between academic strength and practical expertise, the two parties join hands in nurturing students of the MSc FinTech and BEng FinTech programmes.
With such a partnership, Hang Seng Bank inspires students of FinTech programmes through designated internships as well as industrial projects. Hang Seng Bank is also very supportive to the CUHK FinTech programmes and therefore have designated scholarships for the FinTech students.
Both parties believe that closer links between education sector and the banking industry will foster the development of FinTech in Hong Kong.
