Internship Company

Product Management, PwC, Hong Kong

As a current student in HKU’s MBA full-time programme, I had the opportunity to intern in the product management department at PwC Hong Kong & China. Thanks to HKU’s career services team I was able to meet alumnus Sidharta Vaasan at a networking event, who gave me step-by-step guidance on how to secure my internship position. As PwC is a large scale corporate I received direction on which business unit to approach, and after collecting contact information, Sidhartha and I collaborated together on developing a strategy to reach the appropriate contacts.

During the 4 month programme, I created a business impact using skills I already had in solution sales, technology consulting and in-class learnings from the MBA programme. Working closely with the COO has contributed to my overall learnings, specifically with regards to analysing global market opportunities for FinTech solutions and designing strategies for PwC New ventures.

I believe my internship at PwC Hong Kong & China is a key stepping stone to my future career goals. It has equipped me with a broader understanding of business ethics within global markets, where I am interested in pursuing positions within product management, digital consulting & strategy.
