HKUST - Finance


Louise_AM

Been looking into HKUST as a solid alternative for me, given my background, my dream of studying in HK and the program's high employment rates in the Financial Services industry, which is 40% and really stands out. When taking part in a program with such a clear path forth, does it totally restrict you in the future if you decide to slightly diverge? This is an area I'd like to pursue but I worry that the focus might be too strong. How much wiggle room is there for slight career changes? Is this generally not recommended? Cheers!

You'd have much less wiggle room if you pursued a Master in Finance. An MBA is a general program so you tend to have a lot of flexibility.
