The HKPFS has been a true blessing for my academic career! Thanks to this scheme – and also thanks to the priceless help I received from my supervisors at HKBU – I was able to focus completely on my research. During my studies, I made my dream come true – having presented my findings in important international conferences, and won the Wai Tak Land Award for outstanding academic performance.
2014-15 HKPFS Awardee in Visual Arts
HKBU is a place where I was able to identify the expertise needed in order to supervise and facilitate my research. The Academy of Visual Arts is suitably positioned to respond to the new demands being made by the Art and Artists in Hong Kong.
2014/15 HKPFS Awardee in Finance and Decision Sciences
I am grateful to my supervisors for giving me fruitful guidance in developing my research and teaching skills. I enjoy the flexibility and mobility of being a researcher, especially the opportunity to present my research work globally such as in Paris, Sydney and Lisbon. I also got hands-on teaching experience as a part-time lecturer at a local University. During the summer study at NOVA School of Business & Economics in Portugal, our group research proposal was awarded as the Best Project. I will join a local institution as a Lecturer after my graduation. I am looking forward to teaching energetic students and presenting my dissertation on assets seasonalities at Southern Finance Association Annual Meeting in Key West, Florida.

Research oriented environment, supportive supervisors with good research team and place of opportunities for your bright future … for sure HKBU is holding all of these. As a second year PhD student from Pakistan, the most attractive thing for me at HKBU is the mixture of the academic and extra-curricular activities which never makes me feel stressed. Also, chances for attending international conferences help broaden my knowledge about my research topic. In short, I feel proud to be called HKBUian.

I had the opportunity to be twice a visiting researcher at the BRAC Institute of Governance and Development in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I was able to do my data collection there and to interact with top researchers in the field for my research findings. Besides, I spent another three months as an intern in policy research at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris. These valuable experiences are crucial for my professional development.
