Hello! Introducing the Environmental Social Impact (ESI) Club!

Welcome to our page! We would like take this opportunity to show you more about this brand new student club originated from this year’s full time MBA intake.

In today’s corporate world, business decisions are taken with ESI in mind, ethical behaviour is becoming an ever more important part of an organization’s branding and culture, this is known as Integrated Investment.

Our aim is to develop responsible business leaders who are not only the best at what they do, but also the best in the manner in which they do it. Therefore we want to foster the culture of responsible leadership and sustain this club for future HKUST MBA intakes!

But first, here is the ESI club committee!

Interesting…now, what’s the plan?

We believe that positive business outcomes and positive ESI outcomes can be and should be mutually inclusive. Therefore we want to strenghen this believe in the wider student community through our events to look into ESI in different levels and how business decisions can impact them:

Global and Humanity – Our planet and its support systems, its inhabitants

Institutions – Economies, nations, organisations, companies

Individuals – Leaders, citizens, you and me!

Key events coming up:

  • Industry coffee chat / lunch and learn – October
  • Model UN – November
  • Christmas Charity – December
  • ESG Symposium (including Black Rock) – February

Stay tuned for the announcement of events and registration channels!
