Kellogg and HKUST, two globally recognized names. Its well-designed curriculum and great location are just two of the things that attracted me to the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA program. Throughout the program, my expectations were supported by my experience both inside and outside of the classroom. Interacting with world-class faculty and classmates from truly professional, diverse and international backgrounds was truly inspirational. The program has been both intellectually stimulating and thought provoking. At the same time, it has helped me to build genuine friendships and networks throughout Asia and beyond. The world of business, which is currently experiencing significant uncertainty, requires the leadership competencies of confidence, vision, entrepreneurship and passion. The energy, enthusiasm and commitment you see during the program convinced me of the potential and power of this program.

When I selected an EMBA program, I prioritized the diversity of the student body, both cultural and professional, as a core requirement. Having worked on four continents, I realized the value in understanding, appreciating and leveraging the unique perspectives of different cultures and backgrounds. In fact, being able to understand and work within a multicultural environment is critical to our success in today’s business world, especially here in Asia. From Moscow to Manila and from executives to entrepreneurs, the Kellogg-HKUST program’s diversity creates a truly unique learning experience that extends far beyond the classroom. I have no doubt that the experience will benefit us for years to come.

The program offers electives for students to travel to Kellogg partner schools. I spent 2 weeks at the Kellogg school’s Miami campus for a course on Wall Street, hedge funds and leveraged buyout issues and International Finance with students from all over the world. Group work together with these students was international to say the least. It was an extremely interesting and amazing experience. The program gives us a good platform to meet people whom we would not regularly meet or get to know in depth.

The facilities at HKUST are world-class, making it a great learning environment. The schedule created by the EMBA suited my schedule because I was able to attend school on the weekends and still perform my duties during the week. I like the cultural diversity it offers in dealing with people from different cultures, countries and backgrounds. It has a great cross-section of industry representatives from small enterprises to large corporations.
