Current position: Management Trainee

Studying in the HKUST MSGO program is one of the most valuable decisions I have made so far. During the year, I learned not only the fundamental knowledge about supply chain and operations, but also the holistic view of the business world and the concept behind. Besides learning data analysis models and supply chain theories, I had insightful discussion on the business cases with knowledgeable professors and outstanding peers. The program has equipped me with a better business insight, preparing me for entering into the workforce upon graduation. The business knowledge and operational skills such as analytical tools and negotiation models which I learned from the course, allowed me to contribute practical ideas in managerial level discussion and participate in the decision-making process in my current position.

2017 - 18 Intake
Company & location: Goldstream Capital; Hong Kong
Current position: M2M Graduate; Business Development and Client Services Specialist

"The M2M program is distinct yet complementary. The HKUST MSGO program equips students from different backgrounds with rich knowledge and solid skills in various business subjects, while the GBS program assumes students to have sound business literacy and will throw them immediately into numerous raw-case-based challenges in a cross-disciplinary manner. I found the study experience was particularly valuable, since I can put what I learned into practice with subtle business and social concerns. The M2M program as a whole allows students to improve their skills, sharpen their minds, and better prepare to engage in the real business world. The two-year stay in Hong Kong and New Haven also ensures a memorable life episode. I was widely exposed to fun cultures – foods, sports, festivals, etc. More importantly, I encountered great faculties, peers and alumni from all over the world, expanding my network and making new friends. I gained a better understanding of the uniqueness and charm of the two societies, as well as their issues and challenges, making the M2M experience special and fun."

"Choosing HKUST MSGO would probably be one of the wisest decisions I’ve ever made. HKUST Business School has a very good reputation in the world not only for the excellent teaching faculty but the very up-to-date program set up. I really appreciate the interactive way of teaching and learning. Instead of passively taking in the knowledge imposed by professors, students are actively contributing their perspective and understanding about the real business problem, and getting feedback from professors later on. Essentially, there is no perfect solution for a real business issue and we are always searching for if there is an optimized one."
