Executive Director's Message

“Welcome to The Hong Kong Management Association (HKMA) – your gateway to management training and education opportunities and information on the latest management trends and development.”

Ms Titania Woo





Mission and History

Early in 1960, a delegation of six from Hong Kong, headed by the Honourable Sir Sik-nin Chau, attended the 12th International Congress of Scientific Management held in Australia. The delegation returned with the conviction that Hong Kong, having achieved an industrial revolution of some note, must keep abreast of management theory and application developing throughout the world.

The idea, thus conceived and with the encouragement of the Hong Kong Government, led to the incorporation of the Association on 22 November 1960.

Press Release





Business with Purpose

Purpose /ˈpəːpəs/, to most, relates to a search of the reason why and what something or someone is to become. In recent years, “purpose” is also emerging as a competitive advantage and a powerful way to blend business and society, where companies with an established sense of purpose – measured by social impact – were seen to significantly outperform the S&P 500 by over 1,000% over 15 years (EY / Harvard Business Review, 2016). The business case for “purpose” becomes increasingly clear, but building it to inspire stakeholders and trust is more than just creating a mission statement in the office.

In February 2021, the “Business with Purpose” platform was formed through an Impact Partnership between The Hong Kong Management Association (HKMA) and Social Ventures Hong Kong (SVhk). It is united by our common vision to support corporate and social leaders in redefining sustainability, while reinforcing a shared mission to embed PURPOSE in action for a better collective future for HKMA’s members and the wider business community.




Community Services

In order to cultivate the sense of belonging and raise the social awareness among co-workers, the Hong Kong Management Association encourages co-workers to take part in a wide range of charitable and voluntary activities.





Secondary Schools

Since 1990, Council Members of the Association had expressed great concern over the deteriorating calibre of secondary school students. It was felt that the best solution to help improve the calibre of graduates was by influencing the Government on policy issues related to the secondary school curriculum and school management.
