Alumni Testimonial

Natalia BOGATKINA, 2015-16 Intake

Bachelor University: Moscow State University of Economics, Statistics & Informatics (MESI) (BSc in Finance and Credit)

The Professors of the MSAC program are all experienced and well-rounded professionals. During the lectures, they adopted practical approaches so it was easier for us to connect the academic content with the latest industry practice and trends. Moreover, classes were not only focused on the China market but also covered other countries. Thus, we were given a more comprehensive and worldwide perspective of different markets. As an international student, it was crucial for me to keep abreast of everything so that I can adapt to the life and study in Hong Kong easily. I am glad to have the support from MSc Programs Office and classmates throughout my study.


Olivia CHEN, 2015-16 Intake

Bachelor University: The University of Hong Kong (BSc in Risk Management and Finance)
Current Company: Ernst & Young (Hong Kong)
Position: Financial Service Advisory – Advisory · Consultant Program

The MSAC program’s curriculum is well designed, in particular, as a graduate from a non-accounting bachelor program, I have acquired practical foundation knowledge of accounting from the core courses. I really appreciated our professors who organized the course content in a way that students can easily understand, even those who come from a non-accounting background. I found that accounting is more interesting than I had expected. The MSc Career & Professional Development (CPD) team helped us to polish resume for targeted job applications, offered mock interview sessions, and personal coaching which provided useful feedback and guidance. I appreciate the effort by the MSc CPD team.

The MSAC program gave me a full-year career break and provided me a great environment to develop my skills and carefully think about what to look for in a career. It offers a solid combination of theories and real world practice in a wide scope of module topics in accounting, finance and management. It was a unique opportunity to receive a master level education at a world-class business school, and to learn from some of the most reputable professionals, holding executive positions in the city. The course was demanding, but also a lot of fun and very rewarding.

The career services from the School were really useful. They offered comprehensive career training courses, and updated the latest information regarding career opportunities every week. They even helped me connect with the right people in the industry and to navigate my way throughout my job seeking experience.
