Vision & Mission
Our Vision

To become the leading provider of advanced, interdisciplinary executive education with a focus on niche offerings.

Our Mission

We strive to offer high quality executive education programmes that meet the specific needs of individual advancement and corporate development in Hong Kong and across the region.


The Institute of Advanced Executive Education (IAEE) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) was established in January 2011 to develop the University’s advanced executive education and provide interdisciplinary programmes. We embrace PolyU’s promise of "Opening Minds • Shaping the Future" in designing programmes for organisations, business professionals and senior executives.

At the heart of PolyU’s vision and mission lies its commitment to knowledge transfer for the benefit of society. PolyU’s Strategic Plan has underscored this commitment by recognizing knowledge transfer as one of the seven Strategic Areas for the University further development.

An effective means of knowledge transfer is executive education, whereby PolyU draws on its research and teaching expertise to serve the needs of individuals and corporations through advanced, interdisciplinary and niche executive education.
