Business students claim second runner-up spot in Investment Banking Case Study Competition

工商管理學生奪投資銀行案例分析大賽季軍

Two Year 3 Accounting students from the School of Business, Rachel Li and Yvonne Yew, joining with two Singaporean students from the Nanyang Technological University and National University of Singapore, participated in the Investment Banking Case Study Competition co-organised by Credit Suisse and Asia Investment Banking Conference. The team’s outstanding performance successfully won them the second runner-up award in the contest.  

Playing the role of analysts in an Investment Banking Department, contestants were given a scenario and were asked to present a strategic review to the Board of Directors of Lenovo Group Ltd.  

Rachel said: “You can imagine the long-distance discussion between the team members was not easy and time-consuming. However, we were able to utilise the database, books and resources of the three universities in two countries to conduct research. This is a unique experience which enabled us to collaborate closely with university students from another country and to learn from them academic aspects and communication skills.” She thanked their coach Mr Man Ko, Lecturer I of the Department of Accountancy and Law, for his devotion, professionalism and guidance which provided a great deal of inspiration to the team during the competition and led them to their success.  

Mr Man Ko was glad that the international team achieved a remarkable result in the competition with their successful teamwork across universities and borders. He said: “The preparation work was particularly challenging. The two Singaporean students only arrivein Hong Kong one day before the competition so the team had to work under a very tight schedule to prepare for the final presentation.”

工商管理學院兩位修讀會計學的三年級學生李紫瑞和尤鉷榆,早前與另外兩位分別就讀新加坡南洋理工大學和新加坡國立大學的學生組成隊伍,參加由瑞信與Asia Investment Banking Conference聯合舉辦的投資銀行案例分析大賽,憑著團隊的卓越表現,成功贏得季軍殊榮。  

參賽者須於比賽中就既定情景,模擬擔任投資銀行部的分析員,向聯想集團有限公司的董事會發表策略評估。  

李紫瑞同學說:「你可以想像相隔兩地,隊員之間的溝通和討論實非一件易事,而且非常費時,幸好我們能夠善用兩地三所大學的資料庫、書本和其他資源作資料搜集。畢竟這是一次很難得的經驗與另一國家的大學生進行深入協作,並從他們身上學到不少學術和溝通方面的技巧。」她亦感謝團隊的指導老師會計及法律系一級講師高文律先生的付出、專業精神和悉心指導,於比賽期間給予他們不少啟發,帶領他們取得勝利。  

高文律老師喜見團隊於比賽中表現出色,並充分展現出跨院校、跨地域界限的團隊合作。他說:「比賽前的準備工夫可謂極具挑戰性,因為新加坡當地的同學只能於比賽前一日到港,因此團隊要在非常緊迫的時間下為最後的匯報環節作準備。」
