Event Details:

One of the distinctive advantages of studying at CUHK MBA is the vast global alumni network that can be gained from more than 40,000 CUHK Business School alumni and over 7,000 CUHK MBA alumni across 40 countries. The network, knowledge and connections students can garner, remain one of the central reasons for our continued success.

The MBA FinTech Forum moderated by Prof. Seen-Meng Chew, Associate Professor of Practice in Finance and Assistant Dean of External Engagement, is the perfect showcase of how we fully leverage this advantage to inspire the CUHK MBA community. Discussion about central bank digital currencies (CBDC) is heating up globally. While mainland China has recently conducted pilot tests of its CBDC, many central banks around the world are seriously examining the potential and risks of this new technology. Meanwhile, the modernisation of payments infrastructure and digitisation of financial transactions are changing the business landscape significantly.

In this forum, Prof. Chew will lead a panel of distinguished CUHK MBA alumni who have substantial experience in the financial industry to discuss the general outlook of digital currencies, the latest technological developments in payment systems and cross-border fund transfers; and the implications of these new financial technologies on economic growth. You will understand how CUHK MBA’s well-designed curriculum and powerful alumni network can help you obtain strategic insights and facilitate your career development in the financial sector. The forum is open to those interested in applying for CUHK MBA as well as our CUHK MBA alumni.
