The Hong Kong Campus of the UBS Business University opened in response to increasing demand for financial talent in the region.
The new campus located at Li Po Chun Chambers in Sheung Wan, UBS’s second in Asia, will train new employees and offer professional development courses to existing staff. Training will be delivered by senior managers and subject experts.
The campus opening highlights how training at graduate and post-graduate level remains a key issue for wealth managers in regions such as Asia, where firms and consultants have sometimes warned that banks may struggle to find sufficient high-quality staff to meet client demand.
The Swiss banking firm’s first foray into the world of academia was the launch of the UBS Wealth Management Campus at Singapore’s Command House in 2007.
The Singapore campus was subsequently re-launched as the UBS Business University, created in 2010 with the aim of bringing the firm’s training and education programmes together and making them easily accessible to UBS trainees and staff worldwide through the internet.
