“One thing I like most about HKUST MBA is the highly diverse yet cohesive class. With just around 100 students in a class, you really get to form strong bonds with each other.

In fact, I got my internship position at BMW in China through a classmate’s connection. BMW was looking for someone to create and establish a process in the area of supplier nomination management and the position was only available through referral.

If not for my classmate’s network, I wouldn’t have got the internship role, which was converted into a full-time job job after my graduation.”
