The Corporate Development and Training Division (formerly known as the Management and Executive Development Centre) is one of the three core divisions of the Institute for Entrepreneurship. We use The Hong Kong Polytechnic University's intellectual capital and knowledge base to support businesses to achieve sustainable growth.

We provide customized training for corporations, executive development for specific sectors and professional management consultancy services.


Development and Training Programmes Targeted at Executives and Professionals

The Institute for Entrepreneurship of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has three major divisions. One of them is responsible for corporate training and development, which was initially established as the Management and Executive Development Centre. Leveraging the University’s advanced knowledge across disciplines and intellectual expertise, the Institute for Entrepreneurship strives to equip companies and businesses for accomplishing substantial and sustainable development. We also design training and development for selected sectors, tailor-made training courses for companies, as well as professional management consultancy services.

The Institute constantly offers a diverse range of professional and executive training programmes on a short-term basis. Subjects covered in these courses include finance, law, coaching, insurance and other financial services, marketing, etc.

Beside short courses, we organize Credit Accumulation Mechanism (CAM) courses on the application of technology, communication and language, marketing and management tools, product design, etc.

In additional, IfE also delivers Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programmes which are targeted solely at practicing engineering professionals. Through these programmes, participants can consolidate and polish their expertise in up-to-date approaches, while acquiring knowledge in social and digital marketing. They also receive management training covering practical topics such as international business, financial risks, and human resources.

Customized Training and Management Consultancy services are offered for corporations in both Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland. The International Immersion Programme aims at familiarizing undergraduates or MBA students with the practices and business environment in Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland through a series of visits and workshops.

In the academic year 2013/14, the Institute for Entrepreneurship of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) organized around 500 training courses, reaching out to more than 23700 participants from both private and public sectors. These top-level education programmes exemplified the Institute’s ongoing effort of providing quality corporate training, executive training and management training for executives and professionals, as well as tailoring courses for companies and industry organizations to their specific need.
