Company & location: Master of Management Studies in Global Business and Society in Yale University
Current position: M2M Student

During my time at HKUST I had the chance to improve my leadership skills as President of the CEMS Club, to expand my professional network within HKUST and the CEMS alliance, and - most importantly - to meet incredible people from all around the world. The comprehensive management coursework of the MIMT program provided me with the relevant skillset to excel in an international environment, helped me to look beyond the obvious to solve complex and important problems, and prepared me perfectly for my future management studies at Yale University.

Company & location: Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (Hong Kong)
Current position: Associate, Equity Product Department

I really appreciate the one year in HKUST MIMT program, which provided me both knowledge and practical experience and make me better prepared for the job market. I improved my communication and presentation skill a lot through varies of group work, making me more confident in the workplace. In addition, the data analysis methods and project management tools I learnt from CEMS’s business project are also helpful for me to manage the projects I have in my current job. However, what I value most about this program is the people here. I met my life-long partner here and a batch of close friends. They are from different backgrounds and with different experience, but share the same characteristics: open minded and willing to share. We also founded a Wechat official account to sharing the interest stories about these outstanding individuals and our unique experience in CEMS program.

2014-15 Intake
Company & location: KPMG (Hong Kong)
Current position: Senior Consultant

I am currently working as a consultant at KPMG’s CIO Advisory department. I believe that the courses I studied and the people I met during MIMT have equipped me thoroughly to face the challenges in my work environment. The curriculum of the course is designed to tackle the business complexities that exist and will exist in the coming years. The professors have always inspired us to be forward looking and exposed us to real world cases that make learning more efficient and applicable. My time in Beijing during my international exchange provided insights into the Chinese working culture through the business project. These are the experiences and learnings I carry with me when addressing business issues that face today’s companies. Above all, I am grateful to MIMT for linking me to a network of bright and open minded individuals that support me through my journey.

Company & location: McKinsey & Company (Austria)
Current position: Consultant

The MIMT program offers a great opportunity to gain exposure to the Asian business world and cultural mindset, adding to the amazing network of the CEMS alliance, especially the exchange element, which further enriched my cultural experience. During this one-year master program, set in two continents with 3 terms meant you were constantly on your toes to adapt quickly to new situations. This is similar to my current role at McKinsey.

Company & location: Bain & Company (China)
Current position: Senior Associate Consultant

Being a student on the MIMT program was one of the best choices I made in my life, and it was an eye-opening and unforgettable experience. The program surprised me in many aspects such as the competitive and diverse cohort, dedicated staff, and widespread yet strong network, etc. I really appreciated the career services team who guided me through the job hunting process. The MSc Professional & Career Services team was very supportive and assisted students to land their dream jobs. I went to many workshops, scheduled plenty of one-to-one career consultations and even talked with people that worked in the consulting industry. And finally, success, my new position with Bain & Company .
