About the International Advisory Board

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University set up the International Advisory Board in 2010 when internationalization was identified as a strategic priority by the new management team headed by Professor Timothy W. Tong.

The Board, comprising leaders from academia, professional communities and the business sector around the globe, provides international perspectives to the discussion of strategic priorities and development imperatives at PolyU. It is expected to help drive internationalization at PolyU to new heights, making it a truly international education centre, a global hub of advanced learning and a world-class research bridge between East and West.
