About this Event

Students will experience becoming a business consultant, learning the techniques, strategies, skills, and framework used by professionals.

The client students will be consulting for are two businesses owned by Li & Fung – Circle K and Toys R Us. At the start of the program, a brief will be given about the objective of the consultation, students will then be taught the design thinking framework, work in teams, do field research, prototype, test and formulate their ideas.

Throughout these two weeks, students will receive mentorship and coaching by business professionals and field trips are to be expected. At the end of the two weeks, the teams will pitch their best solutions back to the businesses for businesses to consider the implementation of students’ solutions.

We are looking for students who are independent, creative thinkers, bold, and ready to be challenged. This is unlike a regular summer school, it is similar to a work experience training and will require students to be self-directed and behave like a professional.

Students who complete this program will gain business acumen, learn how to think and work like a professional, strengthen critical thinking, deepen communication skills, and exercise non-academic creativity.

Due to potential unforeseen factors such as the summer weather or protest in Hong Kong, we have created this offline program with the ability to transition seamlessly online when needed.

We will keep the physical location available at all times, so if students are unable to join us offline, students can join us online. As a result, we will not cancel any days of the program and will run the full program.

If Typhoon 8 or Black Rain signal is hoisted, a decision will be made by 8:00 AM on the day about the physical attendance and parents will be notified and we will transition online.

Any days where students fail to attend the program either offline or online will not be refunded.
