Dr. Veronique Lafon-Vinais
FINA Faculty
I'm quite flattered that students want to "Take (me) to Lunch"! I very much enjoy sharing insights and advice with my students in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and sharing dim sum is a very good way to do that. It's a win-win situation as I also take the opportunity to find out what our students are thinking so we can keep improving. Thanks to the organizers for a lovely event.

Prof. Veronique is definitely the kindest faculty I’ve met in UST. During the lunch, I not only obtained a better understanding towards QFIN and SBM but also heard a lot about how she saw the future trend in HK and the business world would be. It’s always valuable to know the opinions from a professor. Prof. Veronique treated students as her sons. Having the lunch with her really made my day!

ACCT Faculty
Faculty is just a person… and can be a possible friend! ‘Take Faculty to Lunch’ is conducive to a very relaxed atmosphere where students could know more about their faculty that they are comfortable with. That’s really cool!
BBA ACCT, Year 2
We spent a great time with Kelvin MAK! This event not only gives me the chance to gain more knowledge about studying in UST but also helps us to know more about the business industry in HK. We even talked about how to explore the city, which is so wonderful especially when you're completely new to the environment.
