Co-Lead Faculty Members in Big Data Executive Training 2018-12-24

Professor Wilson Wong, MPUP Programme Director, and Professor Chris Hinnant, MPUP Visiting Scholar in 2017 – 18, were teaming up together to serve as co-lead faculty members of the Public Policy and Leadership Executive Training on “Using Big Data to Create Public Value: Opportunities, Challenges, and Strategies” in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) between 26 – 28 Nov 2018. In the training, Professor Wong delivered two sessions (big data and open data).


Due to factors including the importance of the topic, design of the programme, and the quality of the speakers, the training has set a record in the number of attended participants. It attracted a total of 53 participants. All are officials and policymakers from the HKSAR Government.

It is tough to teach a large class like that in an executive training. But with the commitment of the co-lead faculty members and all the speakers, they are able to provide a three-day transformative learning experience for all participants.
