The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) has launched a new Postgraduate Programme in Corporate Governance (PGPCG) which will commence in September 2016 at the East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST上海華東理工大學) in Shanghai.
The programme aims to equip candidates with sound knowledge and competency in corporate governance and corporate secretaryship. Upon successful completion of all prescribed courses of the PGPCG, and attending a one-week residential school in Hong Kong, students can transfer all credits earned to the Master of Corporate Governance (MCG) programme of OUHK. MCG graduates are eligible to apply for full exemption from HKICS international qualifying examination. Four scholarships (worth HK$8,000 each) will be awarded to the top four students by the end of the programme.
HKICS, together with the OUHK and the ECUST, held an information session on 18 May 2016 on the PGPCG in Shanghai. Over 30 participants from Mainland companies listed in Hong Kong and multinational corporations attended.
HKICS Chief Executive Samantha Suen FCIS FCS(PE) introduced the Chartered Secretarial profession and the HKICS to the attendees. This was followed by a briefing by HKICS Education and Examinations Director Candy Wong on the route to membership of the HKICS, including HKICS exemption policies. Dr Susana Yuen, Associate Professor, Lee Shau Kee School of Business Administration of OUHK, and Gao Jianbao of ECUST explained the programme requirements and application procedures.
The information session ended with a sharing session by three HKICS members: Joanna Lau ACIS ACS, Lu Qiuhan ACIS ACS and Charlotte Xiao FCIS FCS, who are working in Mainland China. They talked about their study experiences and the career prospects of Chartered Secretaries in Mainland China.
Programme details are available here. The application deadline is Wednesday 31 August 2016.
