J.P.Morgan Business Administration Paper 2020

Event Description

Established in 1986, Business Administration Paper (BA Paper) is an international case competition held annually by Hong Kong Federation of Business Students (HKFBS). With a remarkable history of 30 years, it is widely recognised by top professionals from the business field and the academia. This year, we are very honoured to be awarding research collaboration oppotunities with J.P.Morgan to the top-performing team.

BA Paper aims at equipping students with essential business knowledge, allowing them to gain exposure to the global business environment. Over the past 34 years, BA Paper has cultivated business mindsets in generations of students, by adopting contemporary business trends as themes of the competition.

The theme of BA Paper 2020 is The Ideator. As the saying goes, "Ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes". With blooming technology as enabler, it is no doubt that our lives have become profoundly easier than it was a few decades back. However, there still exist some challenges and pain points that are ingrained in our daily life. Successful businesses are often able to capitalise on such opportunities and create innovative solutions.
