The U currently has 46 alumni from Hong Kong, and 21 students from Hong Kong are enrolled at the University this year.

He also received a master of business administration degree from California State University in 2005. Yue lives in Hong Kong and works for Taiwan Shin Kong Commercial Bank as a compliance officer.
