Alumni Experience

I chose to study the weekday electives for the convenience of the Town Centre location as it's close to the Central Business District. It also allowed me to enjoy my weekends whilst advancing my professional career!

Student Story

After working in the UK for 7 years, I decided to move back to my home town.  In order to expand my professional network, and at the same time, prepare myself to be a better leader, I chose to enrol in the MBA programme at HKU, which is renowned for its outstanding academic standards.  Since I had completed my bachelor degree overseas, it would be nice to get the master qualification in Hong Kong, one of Asia’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities.

The programme allowed me to gain an understanding of what is happening in the global business world.  Particularly, I found the case-based learning approach useful as it let us analyse business problems and develop strategic solutions from a senior management’s point of view.

Being a marketing professional, I wanted to round out my skill set and HKU MBA equipped me with practical knowledge in accounting, finance and economics, as well as different aspects of management, leadership and entrepreneurship.  I genuinely enjoyed working and discussing projects with my fellow classmates, who are brilliant minds from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

Studying while having a full time job could be challenging, and therefore, time management is also part of the training when taking the MBA courses.  I also very much appreciate the HKU MBA office which keeps organising social and networking events and  informative workshops for students from time to time, so that they can relax and have fun while pursuing their studies.

I highly recommend the HKU MBA programme to professionals who are considering taking the courses in Hong Kong.  You will find the process very rewarding.
