HKU MBA was a journey of discovery for me. Here, I found myself again. I knew exactly that I wanted to explore a financial career although I didn’t touch finance before the MBA. After graduation from HKU MBA, I joined IBD of China Everbright Bank in Guangzhou. However, I still hoped I could develop my career in Hong Kong, one of the world’s international financial centers. With the help of Career Development and Training, I maintained a relationship with Noah Holdings (Hong Kong) Limited, which is a private wealth management firm listed on the New York Exchange. Noah needed to expand its business in the 2nd half of 2013 and offered me the position of Relationship Manager in Hong Kong.

In my current position, I have opportunities to be in touch with High Net Wealthy Individuals and utilize the knowledge gained in my MBA to meet clients’ requirements. After more than 2 years’ experience in the wealth management industry, I was approached by a headhunter. The headhunter was very interested in my HKU MBA experience and she could leverage that experience to help me to land a position in UBS. Finally, we got the goal. I am working in UBS Wealth Management as Associate Director now. It’s another challenge for me, and I believe HKU MBA team will support me as they did before.
