We Build Leaders













Enterprise and Social Development Research Centre
  • To strengthen our research abilities, our department established the Enterprise and Social Development Research Centre in January 2004. As one of the major research centres in the Hong Kong Shue Yan University, we aim to promote applied research activities related to business management, economics and social development through collaboration network with various departments and universities.
  • After establishing our center, we have engaged in several research projects and business consultancy activities in various areas of studies. In future, our research center will deepen our cooperation with Peking University to participate into some National economic research projects in China.
  • There are three major groups of projects for ESDRC, which included: Applied Research, Corporate Training, and Publication.

Corporate Training Program

  • ESDRC provides customized training programs and consultancy services to meet specific needs of organizations.
