With 66.2% non-local professoriate staff, our faculty is as diverse as our student body. When you join HKU, you’ll have the chance to study abroad with one of our 382 exchange partners in 46 destinations – no wonder we were ranked the 1st Most International University in the World in the 2021 Times Higher Education World University Rankings!
I’m grateful that I got to go on exchange to Italy with HKU. It allowed me to experience one of Europe’s best business schools, leave my comfort zone, live in another country, and meet people from all over the world. Studying in two diverse locations took me out of my comfort zone! I learnt about both local and international cultures, which helped me grow as a global citizen. I’ve no doubt that the experience will benefit me for life.
When I came to HKU, my dream was to be a scientist. However, the flexible curriculum broadened my horizons and I took finance as a second major. A variety of internships meant my learning continued outside of the classroom and prepared me for the real world. After four years of mixing and matching courses, my interest in finance triumphed over science. I now happily work as a consultant at McKinsey & Company.
