we ask employers what they are looking for in a graduate they usually mention
general skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership, initiative,
critical thinking, and so on. For many
employers these may be even more important that subject knowledge. That is why
we have placed such a strong emphasis on whole person education at HKBU – to
make sure you have the skills and qualities that employers are looking for.
Internship opportunities are a key part of that, helping you to develop your practical
skills and to link your academic knowledge with the real world.
am very pleased that Citi and The Hong Kong Council of Social Service have
joined together to organise the Citi-HKCSS Community Intern Programme 2016, and
I would like to thank them for taking this initiative. The programme allows future
leaders to connect with the community, gaining valuable experience and sensitising
themselves to the broader needs of society. I strongly urge you to consider
taking up this opportunity to develop your skills whilst at the same time
contributing back to our society.
With best wishes,

"CityU’s College of Business places great emphasis on whole-person development and makes social responsibility a core element of the curriculum. I am delighted to see the Citi Community Intern Program cultivates students’ awareness of corporate social responsibility and trains students to make decisions that serve not only themselves, but also the interests of sustaining our planet. I give my wholehearted thanks to the organizing committee, Citi Bank and partner institutions for their dedication and commitment.

“The Citi-HKCSS Community Intern Programme provides an
excellent opportunity for our business students to learn from and to apply what
they learn in the classroom to the real world. Three BBA Students, KWONG
Pui Yee (ACT, Yr3), LEUNG Wing Yiu (HRM, Yr4), and KWAI Chung Ying (HRM, Yr4),
joined Citi-HKCSS CIP 2015. Working with community organizations Ching Fai Women
Association, Friends of the Earth (HK) Charity Ltd., and Hong Kong Women
Workers’ Association, and fellow students from other universities, they have
broadened their awareness and understanding of social issues in our society,
and developed team working skills and the capacity for servicing. As part of
Lingnan’s whole-person approach to education, this Intern Programme has
certainly helped them to become more mature and socially responsible citizens
in the changing world. The Faculty of Business welcomes the continuation of
the Community Intern Programme and encourage our students’ participation in the
Citi-HKCSS CIP 2016.”

"The mission of the Citi-HKCSS Community Intern Program aims at inspiring university business students to contribute their knowledge and expertise to non-profit organizations through intership and ultimately cultivating their concept of Corporate Social Responsibility and broadening their understanding of the community at large. This noble mission matches one of the attributes that The Open University of Hong Kong expects from its graduates, that is, to be responsibile citizens and ready to contribute to society. I am grateful to Citibank and HKCSS for providing such an excellent platform not only for our students to contribute to society but also to nurture them to become responsible citizens of Hong Kong."
