Studying at HKUST is an unforgettable experience. It will not only broaden your horizons and help you cultivate new perspectives. It will enable you fulfill your potential. There really are no boundaries to personal development. In my second year, I went from being an account manager to being a bona fide marketer. A four-month exchange at the University of Michigan better equipped me for my current job. I never imagined I would be part of a marketing consultancy for the New York Times and pitch to top executives. What I learned in the program certainly prepared me for my new role.
