THIRTEEN BBA STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN PILOT MARKETING INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME AT EEG

In a first-of-its-kind partnership between Emperor Entertainment Group (EEG), Emperor Entertainment Academy for Performing Arts, School of Business's Marketing Department and HKBU Alumni Affairs Office, thirteen undergraduate students from the School of Business marketing concentration get the chance to work with top industry players to promote the album launch of alumna-to-be Ms. Angela Hui in September 2016.

The students are expected to be heavily involved in both planning and album promotion, guided by a star-studded panel of tutors and mentors from EEG. The panel includes artist Hins Cheung, composer Mr. Eric Kwok, lyrics writer Mr. Poon Yuen Leung, producer Mr. Harry Ng, director Mr. Wilson Chin, and veteran CEO Mr. Ng Yu from EEG.

The idea of the project originated from a discussion involving Mr. Ng Yu and Dr. Melanie Lee, on the development of our current student-cum-artist Angela. The project is particularly meaningful to Angela, who gets the chance to bridge her double identity of student and artist, and work with her fellow students on her album release.
