Prior to joining HKU MBA, I held various positions within the banking industry for more than 5 years. In my last role, I was able to experience, first-hand, FinTech, big data, and machine learning. This has generated my interest in broadening my industry knowledge and expanding my business network.
I started my MBA journey in Beijing where I was able to build a strong rapport with my classmates, who came from a mix of nationalities and industries. During our time in Beijing, we were able to learn a new language, explore historically rich sites and participate in numerous company visits that broadened our knowledge of the business culture in China. The days in Hong Kong started out as intensive yet fulfilling. We were introduced to industry experts and global leaders through networking events, workshops and career talks. Being a 14 months MBA, we were given a comprehensive and effective curriculum that allows us to gain deep insights into not one but two world-class cities.
The choice to pursue my MBA in Hong Kong was essential because this is one of the most diverse and culturally rich cities within the region. Throughout my MBA journey, the MBA office has provided us with various opportunities to explore beyond the classroom and has supported my career advancement every step of the way. They have provided invaluable advice and connected students with mentors and leaders in their industry of interest.
The move to Hong Kong would not have been as easy without the support of my classmates and assistance from the MBA office. HKU MBA has gone beyond my expectations and I would highly recommend those who are up for a challenge to get out of their comfort zone and gain a world recognised MBA!
