Born and raised in Hong Kong, I completed my bachelor of arts degree in economics in Canada and then started my career with a local investment company in North America. I returned to Hong Kong in 1998 and worked in Jardine Fleming which was one of the top tier investment management companies in the industry. After that, I was working in various world class financial institutions such as HSBC, Invesco, JP Morgan and, most recently, with Manulife Wealth and Asset Management. I have been specializing in business initiatives implementation and projects delivery since the year 2000. My job nature requires me to interact with different teams, departments and affiliates every day. I also need to resolve and identify solutions for any ad-hoc issues. Indeed, it is very demanding and challenging work. In order to be well prepared for a career as senior executive, comprehensive and concrete business knowledge is a must.
The courses designed by the HKU MBA programme perfectly meet my expectation of not only extending my business knowledge, but also paving the way for me to step up to the next level. I can learn and develop a holistic understanding of and solutions to the pressing issues in various areas, including finance, accounting, marketing, strategy, innovation and business data analysis. Another reason I like this programme is because of its flexibility in studying mode between weekday and weekend. This allows students of different backgrounds to enjoy this world class MBA programme to the full.
The HKU MBA programme has proved itself in helping me to broaden the scope of my knowledge and in paving a professional path for me. I am sure that the decision to pursue an MBA at HKU is a treasure for a lifetime!
