In terms of how to measure success and whether the MBA is worth the time and money, I guess everyone’s case is different.
In my case, despite quitting my stable job and paying the full tuition myself, I still think it has been a success because I am happy with what I have right now. I also feel I am seeing things differently after studying for an MBA. My view has broadened.
My new position in CJ Group as Senior Development Manager, in which I am responsible for the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan markets, is very interesting.
This job came to me through a relationship from my previous career. However, I don’t believe I would have been offered it if I had not finished the HKU MBA.
I spent my internship at the LinkedIn HK office during my MBA summer break. This opportunity arose because I participated in the sessions arranged by Career Development and Training. Coming into contact with the LinkedIn people personally was the cherry on the cake.
After the exciting and challenging journey, you will win the challenge and come through with insightful classmates and cool alumni as a bonus.
