After graduating from Tourism Retail & Marketing Management in 2017, Jacob Wong started his own bakery business.
Wong had the idea while on an exchange programme in Holland where he met up with his family and relatives from France.
“We did some brainstorming and went on site visits, and when I came back to Macao, we opened our first shop,” he said, pointing out that cost control, marketing and merchandise display were some of the things he learnt from the course that were particularly helpful when running his business.
His internship experience in the retail department of a local hotel where he took part in the preparation for a shop opening was a big help for him when he started his own business.
Recently, Wong has set up another business that will merge IT with retail to cater for the needs of Macao’s multifaceted development and provide more convenience for consumers.
