Prof. Law recognized with Case Competition award at 2022 AAPBS Conference
Aiming to promote and enhance case teaching and writing for AAPBS member schools and their faculty, encourage the development of outstanding Asian-Pacific case studies, and meet the surge in curriculum need for business cases related to the Covid-19 pandemic for class teaching and learning, the AAPBS Case Center organized the first ever AAPBS Case Writing Competition on How Asian-Pacific Companies Fight against Covid-19 for research faculty at AAPBS member schools.
Having been announced by AAPBS Executive Director Prof. Betty Chung earlier in April, the competition awards the writers of excellent submissions with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes at the annual AAPBS Conference being held this week (November 21st to the 23rd) and wrapping up its third and final day at the UQ Business School at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. Congratulations to Capstone Research Advisor and lecturer for the MBA Business Issues and Ethics course, Prof. Eddie Kuok Kei Law, who was amongst the winners recognized with an award at the conference!
The case submitted by Prof. Law revolves around the difficulties encountered by the Hong Kong branch of an international logistics company during COVID-19. While many of the company's employees have turned to remote work, the logistics frontline workers helping their communities by distributing PPE to curb the spread of infection did not have this option, despite being the ones most vulnerable to COVID-19. His case thus asks readers to think of how logistics companies can continue operations while also considering the safety and wellbeing of their workers.
The primary purpose of the Association of Asia-Pacific Business Schools (AAPBS) is to provide leadership and representation to advance the quality of business and management education in the Asia-Pacific region. The AAPBS mission is to collaborate in research and teaching, and working in partnership to improve business school standards and quality. AAPBS and its members are striving to understand and develop a solid paradigm for an Asian management education model within a global context.
