History and founding fathers

The Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Hong Kong was co- founded in the late 1970's by Lincoln Yung, MBA '70, and John Soong, MBA '42. The primary objective of the Club is to serve alumni by connecting them with each other, and with the local community through social and speaker events with local and international business leaders, dignitaries, and scholars.
