More about Hay Group


I am very grateful to the HKUST MBA for including the “Leading with Impact” program in its curriculum. Rather than being theoretical, the program fosters comprehensive skills that I have been able to apply in my workplace immediately. The program starts with a 360 degree evaluation followed by a series of lectures and tailor-made coaching sessions. As the journey has continued, I have been guided to engage, digest, reflect, and strengthen my own leadership style, and to crack the leadership mystery of surrounding leaders.

I have also enjoyed friendships with my diverse range of classmates and their experience sharing on topics ranging from crisis management and peer coaching to emotional intelligence and storytelling, which will be invaluable throughout my career and life.
