After graduating from the University of Tokyo, I worked for one of the largest banks in Japan. My nine years of experience as a banker equipped me with substantial skills and expertise in financial analysis, accounting and derivatives. However, I realised that I would not obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve my goal, the solution of the world’s social problems, particularly those of Asia, through my job or business. I thus chose HKU as the best business school option. The MBA curriculum, which focuses on Asian business, provides me with fundamental knowledge of and insights into business in this region. In addition, the learning experience at Columbia Business School in NYC will give me the opportunity to acquire the latest knowledge of and insights into social-oriented businesses. I believe that the unparalleled opportunities provided by the HKU MBA programme will enable me to achieve my goals.
