Support for a Good Cause - Feature Story on Dr Thompson

Event Type : News
Last Update : 02.05.2018

Even before the Thompson Center for Business Case Studies was established with his backing, Dr Thompson was already supplying the HKUST Business School with cases from his own company.

“I’m a great believer in the importance of case studies,” he says. “These are real situations, whether they will be success stories or failures. When a student reads a case, it really helps them understand what the textbook was trying to tell them.”

As he renews his support for the Center again this year, he explains that he’s always been highly impressed with the energy, leadership and curriculum in the Business School. “I feel very happy to be connected with HKUST, as I think it’s just an outstanding university.”
