Prof. Law recognized with Case Competition award at 2022 AAPBS Conference
The Association of Asia-Pacific Business Schools (AAPBS) Case Center organized the first ever AAPBS Case Writing Competition in Response to Covid-19 for research faculty at AAPBS member schools.
Announced by AAPBS Executive Director Professor Betty Chung in early April, the competition marks the final day of the annual AAPBS conference, held November 21-23 at the University of Queensland Business School in Brisbane, Australia.
Congratulations to Prof. Kuok Kei Law, who was among the winners recognized with an award at the conference.
The AAPBS Case Center aims to promote and enhance case teaching, and writing for members schools and their faculty. To further encourage the development of outstanding Asian-Pacific case studies, in conjunction with the surge in curriculum need for business cases related to the Covid-19 pandemic for class teaching and learning, faculty of all AAPBS member schools were invited to reflect on issues related to companies in responding to Covid-19 pandemic in the Asian-Pacific region.
The case submitted by Prof. Law revolves around the difficulties encountered during Covid-19 by the Hong Kong branch of an international logistics company. While many of the company's employees 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 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 well-being 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.
