The end of the first term is coming and the adrenaline is beginning to flow: group projects, assignments, presentations and final exams are focusing the minds of each MBA student at CUHK as the deadlines are getting closer.
After two months of studying for an MBA at a top school, I can say that the secret of this MBA is Time Management. Time Management is very important inside every organisation, but also inside an MBA programme.
MBA classes started two weeks ago, I am taking five classes, four core courses and one elective course eligible for the China business concentration option. The first week was very interesting as we began adapting to this new life; the professors gave us an introduction to their courses and told us how they are going to evaluate the courses.
The MBA programme at The Chinese University of Hong Kong has a pre-term course - Management Competencies and Current Prespectives – and as a prerequisite to this course students must go on an outward bound programme (OB).
Last Monday I had my first activity on the university campus. There were information sessions about the registration system, student activities and associations and we had a campus tour. The campus is huge and the tour would have been better if the weather had not been so humid.
I have been living in Hong Kong for 4 days and I have realised how dynamic and interesting this city is.
