媒體專訪 | 劉寧榮教授:香港大學SPACE學院立足深圳,助力粵港澳灣區人才培養

2019年2月26日

HONG KONG - The University of Hong Kong’s School of Professional and Continuing Education (HKU SPACE) is to work jointly with Shenzhen to produce high-end talents with global horizons and fuel the transition of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area into a professional services hub.

“A growing number of talents in the Bay Area will be a boost for the development of the professional services industry.” —— Liu Ningrong, Principal of the HKU SPACE Institute for China Business (ICB) and the Executive Academy (SEA)

The move, revealed by Liu Ningrong, principal of the HKU SPACE Institute for China Business (ICB) and the Executive Academy (SEA), comes a week after the release of the much-awaited blueprint for the Bay Area’s development.

The two academies are in discussions with the government of Shenzhen’s Futian district -- the city’s central business district – about long-term cooperation plans, Liu told China Daily.

The Futian government will provide permanent teaching venues for the ICB and SEA in Shenzhen, and the first step is expected to be taken this year, he said.

At present, the HKU SPACE is already conducting some teaching activities in Shenzhen at temporary venues.

“The move will make the academies’ programs more accessible to those not only within the Bay Area, but also beyond it,” said Liu.

For the long term, the two institutions and Shenzhen will also work together to set up an affiliated school in the city to provide more professional-orientated programs and courses to meet the community’s growing needs.

The two academies currently offer more than 20 postgraduate programs in various fields, including human resources management, marketing, finance and innovation management. So far, about 12,000 Chinese mainland students have graduated from the ICB and SEA -- 4,000 of them from the Bay Area.

The HKU SPACE is an extension of the HKU, providing full and part-time courses ranging from short and professional courses to certificate, bachelor and master programs in various subjects.

Liu reckoned the HKU SPACE’s plan is in line with the objectives listed in the Bay Area blueprint, which outlines support for higher education institutions from Guangdong province, Hong Kong and Macao in jointly operating education institutions, and encourages the joint development of academic programs, laboratories and research centers in competitive fields.

The development outline also stresses the nation’s plan to develop a talent pool within the area.

The two academies are ready to serve as a cradle to nurture more talents in various professional fields, such as business, medical management, as well as the cultural and creative industries, Liu said.

“A growing number of talents in the Bay Area will be a boost for the development of the professional services industry,” he stressed. Such joint work will accelerate the flow of personnel and talents in the region, and help keep the region's vitality.

In addition, a new three-month program for fresh graduates -- the Mentor and Apprentice program -- is expected to be rolled out in September, according to Liu.

In classes and workshops, experienced experts will guide young students in exploring the industries they’re interested in, helping them to pass on what they’ve learned in future.

“This will enable young people to adapt to their pursuits in careers, and enrich the Bay Area’s talent pool,” Liu remarked.

To date, a number of universities in Hong Kong have set branches or research centers in the mainland cities covered in the Bay Area, including the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Hong Kong Baptist University. The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology also plans to set up a new campus in Guangzhou.

中國日報香港——香港大學SPACE學院( HKU SPACE )將與深圳合作,培養具有全球化視野的高端人才,助力粵港澳大灣區向專業服務樞紐轉型。

“大灣區人才數量的增長,將促進專業服務業的發展。” ——香港大學SPACE中國商業學院( ICB )及企業研究院( SEA )執行院長劉寧榮

據香港大學SPACE中國商業學院(ICB)和企業研究院(SEA)執行院長劉寧榮透露,這壹舉措啟動於萬眾期待的《粵港澳大灣區發展規劃綱要》發布壹周後。

他告訴《中國日報》,這兩所學院目前正與位於深圳市中心商業區的福田區區政府探討長期合作計劃。

他表示,福田區政府將為香港大學SPACE中國商業學院(ICB)和企業研究院(SEA)在深圳提供永久教學場地,第壹階段預計今年啟動。

目前,香港大學SPACE中國商業學院( ICB )和企業研究院( SEA )已經在深圳租用場地開展了部分教學活動。

“這壹舉措將使來自大灣區以及其他地域的更多人士,能夠了解、參與學院課程”,劉寧榮稱。

未來,這兩所學院和深圳市也致力於在當地建立壹所獨立學院,提供更加專業的項目和課程,以滿足社群日益增長的需求。

這兩所學院目前開設了20多個不同領域的研究生課程項目,包括人力資源管理、營銷、金融、和創新管理。到目前為止,香港大學SPACE中國商業學院( ICB )和企業研究院( SEA ) 已有大約12000名中國內地畢業生,其中有4000多名來自大灣區。

香港大學SPACE學院是香港大學下屬的壹所學院,開設全日制和非全日制課程,包括各類不同學科的短期和專業課程、證書課程、學士、及碩士課程。

劉寧榮教授認為香港大學SPACE學院的規劃與《粵港澳大灣區發展規劃綱要》中列出的目標壹致,《綱要》支持廣東省、香港和澳門的高等教育機構開展合作,並鼓勵在競爭性領域聯合開設學術項目、實驗室和研究中心。

《綱要》還著重強調了國家在該區域建設人才儲備的計劃。

劉寧榮教授表示,在商業、醫療管理以及文化創意產業等專業領域,這兩所學院願意成為培養更多人才的搖籃。

“大灣區人才數量的增長將促進專業服務業的發展。”他強調。這種合作將加速該區域的人員和人才流動,並有助於保持該地區的活力。

此外,劉寧榮教授稱,計劃於9月推出壹個為期3個月,面向應屆畢業生的新項目——師徒項目。

通過課堂授課和研討會的形式,經驗豐富的專家將指導年輕學生探索他們感興趣的行業,幫助他們在未來學以致用。

“這將幫助年輕人適應他們的職業生涯,並充實大灣區的人才庫,”劉寧榮教授說。

迄今為止,壹些香港高校,包括香港中文大學、香港理工大學和香港浸會大學,已經在大灣區的內地城市設立了分支機構或研究中心。香港科技大學也計劃在廣州建立壹個新校區。
