Large companies use corporate scholarships as part of their HR strategy to develop and retain high-potential employees.

For businesses that strive to provide experience and service excellence to their customers, developing employees through an advanced degree in Design will allow them to move the company forward with fresh perspectives brought back from the creative class.

Two programmes are particularly relevant for innovation management and suitable for employees that have demonstrated an open mind for new things and processes:

Students will complete the programme with a capstone project that aims to uncover contemporary issues and previously unrecognized user needs. Employees ranging from strategic and product development to marketing to internal corporate communication will find this a valuable platform for them to see new possibilities from the faculty and fellow classmates.

To sponsor high-potential employees for any taught postgraduate programmes at PolyU Design, companies could offer a combination of support to employees, including:

  • Tuition sponsorship
  • Financial support for living expenses
  • Policy of acting roles while a staff is away for sabbatical
