Student Story

Before I came to Hong Kong, I had been working as a financial advisor. 4 years into the job, I felt that my career had plateaued. I needed a brand new platform on which to re-establish a career path with faster advancement. When I first joined the MBA class of 2013 here at HKU, I expected to break into Asset Management or Banking. After closely working with the Career Development and Training, I was givenĀ opportunities to visitĀ companies of interest and to network with the professionals in the industry. The more networks I established, the better I understood my career aspiration. Eventually, I landed a Summer Internship position at Citibank and earned myself a permanent position in Equity Sales.
