As announced by HKBU on 30 January, the sixth Distinguished Alumni Award will be presented to four outstanding alumni, including our remarkable alumus, Dr. Cartier Lam Chi-man (林志民博士). The Award recognizes the outstanding business, professional or scholarly achievements of the awardees, and their contributions to the University and society. It also aims at encouraging students to learn from their experiences and successes.
