In this knowledge-based society, continuing education seems to be the only way to stay competitive in the employment market. Nevertheless, many plans for further studies are deterred by long working hours and high tuition fee. Executives facing such dilemma may consider applying for “Susan Yuen Fellowship & Research Foundation Scholarships”, and enroll for one of the programmes to equip themselves.

To recognize the outstanding services of the late Mrs Susan Yuen to industry and commerce in Hong Kong, members of The Hong Kong Management Association (HKMA) and the Federation of Hong Kong Industries (FHKI), on the occasion of her retirement as Chief Executive of the two organizations, established the Susan Yuen Fellowship and Research Foundation, to promote and provide financial support for non-degree programmes and research projects of a practical nature leading to the growth and development of management in Hong Kong.
