Justin PO (Canada)
Class of 2021
Pre-MBA: Senior Associate (Data Analytics), PwC Canada
I wanted to work in Hong Kong because it is an international hub and a gateway to Asia Pacific. I also knew I wanted to pursue an MBA to broaden my perspective. HKUST offered an amazing Asia-focused education, making it very appealing to me. I knew that HKUST would help me establish a great network with my classmates, professors, and alumni which are conducive to my career prospects.
My experience has been great so far. Even with the disruptions going on around the world, I have met many new friends and have learned a lot from them. My classmates and I have formed a very tight-knit group and we manage to make our MBA journey extremely fun. The MBA Office reacted very quickly to minimize disruption affecting my education. There are no delays at all. Outside of school, Hong Kong is very lively and the city never sleeps.

The professors really stood out to me in this MBA. Going in, I was expecting MBA classes to be very similar to undergraduate classes - a group of students listening to the professor going through many slides for 3 hours. However, this isn't the case. Lectures are very discussion-oriented. Students share their experiences about certain topics, which make the classes very engaging. Some of the HKUST MBA professors are seasoned professionals with years of industry experience, making their lectures very relevant and applicable to the working world. There are also technology elements embedded in traditional business topics for some classes. This makes the whole learning experience more relevant as technology has become more and prominent in today's world.
