about us

The depth of MTR Corporation’s expertise in railways laid a solid foundation for the establishment of the MTR Academy. Officially opened on 10 November 2016, the MTR Academy, a wholly owned subsidiary of MTR Corporation, is geared to become a global training and research hub for upholding world-class performance and creating success.


MTR Academy aims to become an internationally recognised railway management and engineering centre of excellence in providing programmes for MTR staff, the Hong Kong community and the railway industry in the Mainland of China and overseas.


The mission of the MTR Academy is to train railway talents and develop railway experts and executives with the aim of advancing service and operational excellence of the railway industry worldwide. In striving to fulfil these objectives, MTR Academy will make collaborative contributions to raise industry standards by:

  • providing executive and professional training courses for railway operators and authorities;
  • establishing a railway operator community in pursuit of management best practices, service and operational excellence;
  • offering accredited programme and topical short courses for the local community;
  • conducting applied research in partnership with railway operators, universities and research institutes.

In this way, the Academy seeks to support the Belt and Road Initiative and to serve the needs of Hong Kong, the Mainland of China and the rest of the world.
