Focus and Balance – Fabio Finotto, Class 2008

 

Class of 2008 
Post-MBA: Engineering Program Manager, Moog Controls HK Ltd

An Italian working in Hong Kong for 3 years, Fabio decided to advance his career by pursuing an MBA right in the place.

“On Saturday, I can concentrate on my studies and network with other students without interfering with my job…”

“After deciding to complement my engineering education with business management, HKUST seemed the natural choice for my MBA given its excellent reputation, outstanding international faculty, and the Saturday class schedule for its part-time program.

“My work in Hong Kong often requires me to travel during the week. However, this makes taking courses difficult. The HKUST MBA’s Saturday classes allow me to attend lessons without interfering with my job. It also means I can have a more balanced lifestyle, including a social life! By studying at weekends, I can concentrate on my learning yet still have the opportunity to network with other students. In addition, the program’s online resources offer further support when I am on the road during the week.

“At HKUST, I make many new friends. I am impressed by the quality of the participants, while teamwork helps me to discover my strengths and to learn from others. I am sure that by the end of this challenging undertaking I will find myself greatly enriched, both personally and professionally, by the strong bonds established with my classmates.”
