[eNews] MBA Career Trek - Singapore and Shanghai

In October, the MBA Career & Professional Development Team (CPD), the student-led MBA Association and Student Clubs co-organized Career Treks to Singapore and Shanghai to support MBA students’ access to career and networking opportunities in Asia.

In Singapore, 35 students visited Allianz, Aon, DBS, DHL Consulting, GIC, Golden Gate Ventures, Grab, GSK, Jet Aviation, Partners Group, Rakuten, Shopee, Singapore Blockchain Association. The trek was concluded with a mixer event attended by 40+ alumni and a Career Panel Discussion featuring Kalpana DENZEL (Managing Director, Russell Reynold Associates) and Anurag GARG (Associate Director, Michael Page).

The Singapore Alumni Chapter provided tremendous support to the visit. “Alumni can and should use our established professional networks to help the CPD open doors and build relationships with potential supporters, especially in cities outside of HK. This year our Singapore chapter worked closely with the CPD to open doors to several company visits as well as hosting a recruiter panel to share insights into the employment landscape across ASEAN”, said AJ Boelens, Chairman of the Singapore Alumni Chapter.

In Shanghai, 29 students visited companies from a wide range of industries including Eli Lilly, Pernod Ricard, ZS Associates, Riot Games, VCredit, NIO, Invesco, DuPont and Hyundai Robotics. Guest speakers talked to participants about their valuable experience on different hot topics and trends in China such as e-commerce, new retail, e-sport and blockchain, and wealth management.

The visit was concluded with an alumni mixer at the WeWork Shanghai Flagship Store. Over 50 alumni and students joined the event and enjoyed two insightful speeches by Mr Alan AI (General Manager of WeWork of Greater China) on “Future of Work” and Mr David CHAN (CEO of Bo Le Associates Greater China) on “Talent Market in China”.

We would like to take this chance to thank our alumni in Shanghai and Singapore for their active participation and support.
