PolyU establishes the “Fung Yiu King - Wing Hang Bank Endowed Professorship in Business Administration”

 

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) held a luncheon at Hotel ICON on 19 January 2015 to express its appreciation to Professor Patrick Fung Yuk-bun for the setting up of the “Fung Yiu King - Wing Hang Bank Endowed Professorship in Business Administration” through a donation made in the name of the Fung Yiu King Charitable Foundation Limited. It is the eleventh Endowed Professorship since the launch of the Endowed Professorship Scheme in 2012.
 
Professor Fung is a long-standing supporter of PolyU and higher education. He was the University Treasurer of PolyU from 1993 to 1996, and was conferred an Honorary Doctorate of Business Administration by PolyU in 2001. Dedicated to the teaching and research of business administration, Professor Fung is currently an Honorary Life Vice President of the PolyU Foundation and Adjunct Professor of PolyU’s School of Accounting and Finance, a position which allows the beneficent banker to groom young talents for Hong Kong by drawing on his expertise in business and finance.
 
The Endowed Professorship Scheme aims to provide a unique opportunity for members of the public to advance the research and academic activities of a specific discipline through donating to PolyU, as well as to honor distinguished scholars for their outstanding achievements. The establishment of this Endowed Professorship not only represents the community’s recognition of PolyU’s achievements in business administration, but facilitates further development of the discipline.
