HKUST is a truly international business school, successfully integrating global outlook with local perspective and insights. The program provides a good balance between theory and practice, with individual and team approaches in class. Professors are drawn from top universities around the world, including preeminent scholars with rich research and practical experience. I was amazed when I realized the professor teaching us was also the author of our textbook, which is used in numerous world-class business schools. I enjoyed working with my classmates. All had strong academic records, substantial real-world experience and the intellectual curiosity and passion to pursue excellence.
