The program at HKUST is second to none. Most memorable for me was the Managerial Communications course. You can expect to be challenged, and to improve your skill set exponentially. In the second year, the options available (exchanges, events, short-term trips, electives...) are bewildering in their number. The sky is the limit, so don't let anything hold you back. Without any hesitation and in every respect, I can say that choosing HKUST was one of the best decisions of my life. If you're looking to take your career to the next level, this is the place for you. Do it. Jump!
