Class of 2016
Hong Kong

Currently I work at Nomura, in its Portfolio Management and Equity Trading Division. Previously, I worked at HSBC from 2004.  I received a Bachelor Degree from York University, Canada.

After 10 years of solid working experience in the investment banking industry, I realize that in order to further develop my career and be ready for an executive position in the future, it’s time for me to find a way to enhance my finance knowledge and widen my skill-set in areas such as  management and leadership.  After searching and exploring different MBA programmes in the market, I found that the HKU MBA programme best fits my interest and current job type, not only from  its long established reputation, but also because the curriculum will largely focus on China and Asian markets, which will definitely benefit my career alongside the growing business opportunities in China and Asia.  In order to get the competitive advantage in today’s job market and equip myself with more knowledge, an MBA degree will definitely help me to rise higher.

I have very much enjoyed my HKU MBA’s journey so far. It provides me not only advanced knowledge, but also allows me to build strong relationships and network between professors and classmates both inside and outside the classroom.  This is what I see as a valuable asset in earning an MBA in HKU.  I can apply learned knowledge and principles to my future career and my expanded human network will also help me to boost my career by exchanging views when it comes to solving problems and seeking advice.
