180 Degrees Consulting of CityU
Founded in 2020, 180 Degrees Consulting CityU Branch (180DC-CityU) is the third local 180 Degrees Consulting branch to provide affordable consulting services to non-profits and social enterprises in Hong Kong.
Driven by a group of ambitious and socially-aware university students with passion to make the world a better place, the CityU Branch aims to:
“Provide holistic consultation services for clients to realise their potential and groom a cadre of impact-focused talents with business consulting skillsets”
Every year we invite special guests who have made positive changes in the society to share their thoughts on how we should shape the world towards a brighter future. This year we are honored to have the battlefield humanitarian Mr. Jason Yip Wai Cheong to share his stories at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
Under the advisory board led by the Associate Dean of College of Business, 180DC-CityU strives to contribute to the betterment of Hong Kong society, building a strong pipeline of talents with social impact mindset, and improving the services of NGOs and social enterprises in the years to come.
