Coming from a technical background, I pursued an MBA to better understand the fundamentals of business with a focus on strategy. One of my favorite professors at HKUST was Prof. Chris Doran, a former McKinsey consultant, who taught us strategic approaches to company analysis and the practical frameworks for solving business problems.

The value of the HKUST MBA courses is how they bridge theory with practice. In fact, what I learnt from two of the courses helped me pass the interview and successfully land the role of a data science manager only 9 months after I started my MBA.
