Professor Joshua Mok, Vice President and Professor Leng Ming-ming, Dean of Faculty of Business, visited three leading universities in the UK to develop stronger links with these institutions for enhancing research and postgraduate studies. At the University of Essex, Professor Mok and Professor Leng met the senior management of the School of Business and Faculty of Humanities and colleagues from the Partnership Office. Productive conversations among colleagues from both universities led to an agreement to promote PhD student exchange, joint PhD, joint master and joint undergraduate degree programmes.
The visit to the Bath School of Management was just as productive. Agreements were reached to promote PhD student exchange, and to explore joint degrees in Doctor of Policy Studies (Lingnan) and Doctor of Business Administration in Higher Education Management (Bath). Collaboration was also explored in co-developing the Lingnan-Bath Master in International Higher Education and Management (IHEM) to enhance students’ international and comparative perspective and analytical ability regarding management issues in higher education.
