Hi ,

Just wanted to know whether most of the people admitted in HKUST have a bachelors degree from IITs, NITS..etc. Because their requirement asks a strong bachelors degree.

The deadline for Admission Results (R2 applicants) was 28th March 2013. However, I have not received any update on my application status from the Admission Committee. Further, during the interview I was told that the admission decision will be provided after 4 weeks. By when can we realistically expect updates on Admission status from HKUST.

@bkkkrzy The largest % of HKUST MBA grads go into the Financial Services industry. What roles or job functions do they end up in?

lucky12 - 2 people in the previous batch got into trading. One is in Credit Suisse in cash equities in HK while the other is in Stan Ca in Singapore.


If you have a background in trading, then yes its easy, if not, then its difficult.

@hkustmba2013 - I have been following this forum for some time now as I intend to apply for HKUST MBA 2014 intake.
Would you be able to share what percentage of HKUST MBA grads go into sales trading? Do you know anyone who interned or joined FT as a trading analyst / associate?
I am assuming getting into sales trading in HK would be comparatively easier than IBD. IBD to some extent will need business level knowledge of Mandarin. Same applies for sales. But for a trading role you don €™t necessarily need Mandarin skills.
