The theme for this year's Mentoring Programme is Commencement of the Odyssey, which symbolizes that the mentoring programme is the first step in the journey to becoming successful business leaders of the future. Through the Mentoring Programme we wish to instill upon our members the importance of preparing ourselves for the future, and to start thinking about our potential careers as we near the end of our career as students.

Economics Festival 2015 - Closing Ceremony

The Closing ceremony was held on 4th November, 2015. It aimed to reward sub-committee members and all members who had supported us throughout the year. Organising activities is never easy, we could not succeed without the support from our members. As a result, this year we chose to have Big Bowl Feast as the end of The Economics Festival 2015. Big Bowl Feast symbolises reunion and 'Passing on the torch'. We hope the whole function could be a precious opportunity for sub-committee members to organise an event, and a platform to equip themselves as the future leaders of The Economics Students’ Society, HKUSTSU.
