As I wanted to switch from consulting to the finance industry and to remain in the booming Asian economy, the finance hub of Hong Kong was a natural choice for pursuing my MBA. My favorite part of studying at HKUST is that the professors encourage experiential learning. In addition to knowledge being shared in the classroom, students are encouraged to do their own research on real-world business cases and share their findings in groups. The beauty of learning at HKUST is that you not only learn from academic and industry experts, but also gain perspectives from your classmates from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds.
