Class of 2015

When I entered the MBA Programme at HKU I had no specific career path in mind which I wanted to pursue after my studies. I simply took the 14-month MBA as an opportunity to step back from my previous job, learn more about other areas of business and about myself.

The courses, many company visits and various Career Development and Training activities broadened my knowledge about the business world. Moreover, I had the chance to do an internship at Burberry’s Causeway Bay office and got to know how a world-renowned luxury brand works on the inside.

Finally, I was lucky enough to be selected for the MBA World Summit in Barcelona, an exclusive event for MBA students from all of the top business schools. There in Spain I met recruiters from Merck and got hired some months later as a Senior Project Manager for Supply Chain Management. In this role I work on group-wide strategic initiatives and manage the overall cross-divisional project portfolio. The topics range from Advanced Analytics over Smart Factory to Virtual Supply Chain. This global role gives me the chance to work with people from many different countries and regions. Therefore, every day at work feels a little bit like being in the MBA at HKU.
