University of Stirling students in Hong Kong were invited to visit Cathay Pacific’s cargo terminal as part of their Management and Marketing undergraduate programmes.

The students are studying for a BSc (Hons) in Management or a BA (Hons) in Marketing as part of a partnership between the University and Lingnan Institute of Further Education in Hong Kong.

They visited the airline’s cargo facility to see first-hand how supply chains work in practice, as part of the "supply chain management" module from both degrees.

Professor David Mackay said: “Cathay Pacific is a Hong Kong-headquartered, highly regarded multi-national operation of significant scale.

“We are delighted that the students had the opportunity to witness their facilities and processes first-hand. This sort of activity gives students a real appreciation of the challenges and benefits of effective supply chain management.”
