Breaking through a bottleneck in my career is one of the greatest challenges I faced. After 5 years in the workforce, I realized the importance of continuing to enhance my theoretical and practical skills. The MAGS programme offered me such an opportunity to refresh and to consolidate my knowledge. I selected global political economy as my concentration, which students can better understand the global market from economic and political perspective. The courses provided a framework for me to improve skill set such as critical thinking. The extra-curricular activities also brought huge benefit to my personal development. Thanks to the excellent education at HKBU, I was able to secure a job in a listed company in Hong Kong right after my graduation. MAGS is definitely one of the best decision I made.
