The two things that I find most attractive about the HKUST MBA are its diversity and global mindset. International classes such as Edith Terry’s South East Asia and Roger Levermore’s Africa helped me gain a better understanding of the international market and most importantly of other cultures around the world. Doing an MBA in one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in the world with students and professionals from all around the globe has helped make me who I am today. With the support of the entire HKUST MBA family, I was able to land a summer internship in Tokyo with a Japanese construction company
