Post-MBA Job Title

Deputy Director, Financial Services, AMTD Group, Hong Kong

I worked as a business development intern at Sensetime, a Hong Kong technology company specializing in AI visioning, from February to May 2019. My duty was supporting the other members in the BD team in researching on opportunities in AI+Education in the Bay Area, briefing our company on exhibitions, and finishing and processing sale contracts among other ways. It was a very short internship before my exchange in Columbia Business School.

Through this experience, I got a basic understanding of what was happening with AI visioning in China. AI, or machine learning, is a technology which will increase the efficiency of so many industries. I know it is at an early stage in its technology curve now and I’m pretty sure the majority of companies will use AI in the next ten years, whether they are aware of that or not. Overall, it was a very good experience for me.
