PolyU CEO Club collaborates with Student Affairs Office (SAO) to run the “CEO Shadowing Programme”. Including a meetup and one-day shadowing of a CEO, the programme aims at providing an opportunity for PolyU students to interchange with local CEOs. The students can learn about leadership and the entrepreneurial mindset, whilst the CEOs can gain more understanding of the young generation. The one-day shadowing allows the students to experience the daily life of a CEO and to learn some essential management tips for running a business.

Programme (for mentees)


Meetup and matching (1)

Meetup & matching

In order to match up the CEOs and the students, we arrange a meeting or a dinner for both parties, allowing them to get to know each other. During the meetup, the students are invited to present their solutions to a business challenge assigned by the CEOs.
