Asia Career Trek

Among the 70% of graduates who eventually find a placement in Asia, about 50% are based outside of Hong Kong. In fact, we organize a Career Trek in other parts of Asia outside of Hong Kong each year to maximize placement opportunities for you in the region. During this intensive one-week trip, you will get to visit corporates from different industries, learn about the latest market trends and take advantage of job opportunities from various leading firms.

Here is a partial list of the companies we have visited during our latest Shanghai, Singapore, Dubai Career Trek:

  • Apple
  • BCG
  • Emirates
  • Expedia
  • Fosun
  • General Motors
  • Google
  • Goldman Sachs
  • Hilti
  • Metlife
  • Ping An Group
  • Pfizer
  • Schneider Electic
  • Tencent

and more ....


HKUST MBA Career Trek is one of the most important events organized by the MBA Career Services team, mainly for two reasons: It is a unique chance to visit companies and meet hiring managers, and is a great opportunity to travel with classmates. The networking event organized during the Career Trek in Singapore is a great opportunity to meet HKUST alumni, amongst whom was a senior principal from IMS Consulting Group, where I am currently interning. Networking is key for MBA students, and as a wise man once said: there is just one letter difference between the words “not working” and networking.
