Sharing from 2019 Scholarship winners

10 awardees visited UNIQLO headquarters in Tokyo, Japan during June 2019. Having direct communication with Mr. YANAI, CEO of Fast Retailing Group and Mr. PAN, CEO of UNIQLO, Greater China, we are pleased to have Annabelle, David, Jonas, Hazel and Ronald to share their fruitful experiences during the trip.

Annabelle
Bachelor of Business Administration in Asian Business Studies,
The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The five-day trip visit to the UNIQLO headquarters in Tokyo was an eye-opening experience. Not only had I enhanced my knowledge on retail operations and functions, but also learned about how the apparel industry can contribute to the world problems by equipping a bigger vision. Fast Retailing is not solely a retail company; instead it is a customer-focused company which provides a new lifestyle experience to customers. The meeting with various departments and top management were extremely inspirational and I am determined to work on Sustainability in order to make the world a better place to live in. All in all, it was a precious opportunity to meet passionate dreamers. Their passion and dreams definitely inspire and motivate me to better prepare myself for the future.

David
Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science,
Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

The UNIQLO Scholarship means so much to me. I did not only learn from a series of inspiring sharing from the Senior Management and leaders from UNIQLO, but I also met nine UNIQLO scholars who are determined and passionate about their dreams. The discussion with directors, the visits to UNIQLO and GU stores and the observation in UNIQLO offices has redefined my understanding about UNIQLO, changing from a retail company to a company defined itself with LifeWear and aimed to serve every customers globally. I am so inspired to see that the products, stores, services, employees and senior management of UNIQLO are centered around customers seamlessly, and I am sincerely grateful to have my questions answered directly by experienced directors. Thank you, UNIQLO, for reminding my dream before my graduation and showing me how a dream can be shared!

Jonas
Bachelor of Arts in Japanese Studies,
The University of Hong Kong

For me, the whole scholarship program is a journey of inspiration, guidance, and self-reflection. From the previous stages of handing in essays regarding our dreams to the 5-day trip, the power of the program far exceeded my expectations.

As an Arts student, I have limited knowledge when it comes to business management and operations. Therefore, having the idea of how a fast-growing, young global business operates is of the top of the list of my learning objectives. Yet, what I got via the interactive meetings with executives across departments is the importance of asking the right question regarding the needs of the organization and the customers, the attitude of putting solutions and ideas into reality, and be detail-minded. Surprisingly, these learning are not only applicable to the business genre but also the journey of orienting our career paths and lives. Young people have a tendency to think big, which is also our strength, but we lack the guts to execute our ideas. The sharing from the executives exactly taught us a lesson about this and I believe this will be my life-long learning wherever I go.

Hazel
Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business and Global Management and Marketing,
The University of Hong Kong

It has been a very memorable 5-day trip where we got to understand UNIQLO's business in a comprehensive way. From store operations to backend management, I was honored to have been granted this exclusive experience to meet with top management and different departments as a scholarship winner. Together with other young leaders, we have conducted fruitful discussions that inspired us on the action steps to take in order to achieve our life goal. Overall, I was very impressed by the fashion industry and I am looking forward to future opportunities in related industries in my future career journey.

Ronald
Bachelor of Engineering (Honors) in Mechanical Engineering,
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

The scholarship provided me a precious opportunity to understand the success of UNIQLO through store visits and discussions with the UNIQLO top management team. I was deeply inspired by UNIQLO’s business philosophy, FR way, and the way they manage 1,241 stores on a global scale regardless of weather conditions and cultural differences.

Through the discussion with UNIQLO Greater China CEO Mr. Pan Ning, I understood that customer orientated strategy acts as the most crucial role in the UNIQLO business model, from now and in the future. I was amazed that UNIQLO is undergoing a digital transformation with the latest technology because of customer needs. This greatly inspired me to look forward to the far future and think of the real purpose of a business.
