Signature Programmes

Joint Humanitarian Entrepreneurship Summer Academy 2019

Most learning in universities takes place in isolation, students are offered courses and there are outreach programs which try to work with communities. Considering an apparent lack of a crossover between a structured course and student-community interaction; Office of service learning and Lingnan entrepreneurship initiative at Lingnan University, Hong Kong initiated the first joint humanitarian entrepreneurship summer academy in 2018. In the second edition of this program, we have partnered with multiple universities and local partners to come up with this exciting program.
