Coming from Turkey as an auditor, I’ve worked with companies across multiple industries with business interests in both the East & West. I wanted to further equip myself with first hand knowledge from experts in this region. The HKUST MBA program has given me that opportunity and so much more. I’ve been able to learn from world-class faculty on subjects ranging from family business to entrepreneurship, and through meeting with industry experts based in Asia. For each and every interest I’ve gained during the past year, there is always an event or workshop to attend! The key really has been to stay focused and be selective!
