Encouragement and support for continuous learning and development of our Talents is a quintessential part of life inside HKBN. Over the years, we established a number of unique education sponsorship and Talent support programmes geared towards cultivating our Talents:
Next Station: University
Next Station: University I was a five-year programme organised in association with the Hong Kong Management Association. We supported 30 Talents from Hong Kong and Guangzhou to fulfill their dream of earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Wales.
After seeing 30 of our Talents graduate in November 2014, Next Station: University II carries on as a three-year curriculum with classes started in January 2016.

Talent Infinity programme
This programme subsidises Talents’ part-time eMBA/MBA studies. This serves to equip them with forward-looking business knowledge and up-to-the-moment market insights.
Development & Training
Talents are appropriately nurtured through formal development and training programmes to expand our long-term prospects, and sustain our corporate aspirations, culture and values.
Next CTO Graduate Technical Trainee Development Programme
Our Next CTO Programme grooms a group of Graduate Technical Trainees (GTT) to become Talents capable of formulating technology development alongside with the leadership skills needed to assume a future management role. In 2015, this programme enlisted seven Talents out of 1,185 applicants.
In July 2017, the programme recommenced through the enlistment of 2 elite participants from a short-listed group of 48 candidates. Our 2 GTT participants will undergo a variety of wide-ranging experiences, challenges and one-on-one coaching during the planned 24-month period.
