Our full time MBA student from United Kingdom John Besant-Jones (Class of 2011 student) shares his MBA experience with CUMBA
"I have worked for many years at the cutting edge of investment banking, stockbroking and fund management in London, UK, including 5 years at Credit Suisse, so I have a clear idea about what is most important for an MBA. I gave careful consideration to many regional and international MBA programmes in China, Europe and the USA, and concluded that the CUHK MBA provides the best training and opportunities to pursue both a successful international and regional career.
Compared to other MBA programmes, the CUMBA provides the best mix of theoretical and practical aspects in business education, particularly for the critically important areas of Chinese business and culture. The university is well known to have the strongest Chinese cultural roots in Hong Kong and the world outside mainland China. This is twinned with the advantage that its location is in Hong Kong, the corporate hub of South East Asia and China's global business gateway to the world, where nearly all major international corporations base their regional headquarters. This gives unparallelled direct access to the best of both regional and international business expertise, merged together to form a perfect combination.
I was also impressed with the MBA department's very professional approach and numerous staff resources, great multi-cultural mix, excellent links to industry and long established history. If your objective is to succeed in Chinese and international business, then the CUMBA is the obvious outstanding first choice."
