MONDAY, 9 MAY – The Association of Business, Economics and Accounting Students (PMPEP) recently organised a study tour to Hong Kong.
Themed ‘Discover Fragrant Harbour Educational Tour Programme’, the study tour involved 13 students from the Faculty of Business, Economics and Accounting (FPEP) accompanied by the Deputy Dean of Student Affairs and Postgraduate FPEP, Dr. Arif @ Kamisan Pusiran and two administrative staff of FPEP.
Among the programmes carried out during the five-day visit was a meeting and discussion with the Association of Students of the University of Hong Kong (HKU), and a visit to Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
The opportunity to step on Hong Kong soil, also known as the Pearl of the Orient was fully utilised by the students to gain new experience with a visit to the Science Museum and the Golden Bauhinia Square, an historic place that became the venue for the resubmission of Hong Kong from the British administration to China in 1997.
The PMPEP also visited Ocean Park, one of the major tourist attractions in Hong Kong and the nearby market square that sold a variety of interesting souvenirs.
Speaking about the visit, FPEP Dean, Professor Dr. Rasid Mail believed that the experience of being outside of the country helped make the students be mature in their thinking about global progress that was happening rapidly around the world.
“This study tour could also build a foundation to create a network between local universities, in particular UMS with international universities for student mobility programmes at international level in the future,” he added. – SS (fl)
