The multi-cultural set-up of the program allowed me to deepen my understanding and compatibility with other cultures and working styles to an unanticipated extent.

Choosing MSGO will 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.
