Head of Strategic Planning Doyle Dane Bernbach (KH14, 2011-2012) There are many executive MBA programs, but the Kellogg-HKUST was my rst choice. At this level of education, one expects to learn as much from the professors as from the students. The program is well-known for bringing together high-caliber executives from a range of industries. The Kellogg-HKUST program selected 60 people, half of whom ew in, and who originated from 22 nations, to live and work together for 18 months. The diversity, rigor and yet openness of thinking amongst the students made my experience remarkably rich and rewarding. Today, I have 59 incredible friends and advisors there for me and me for them.

Tom Young
Principal Group 70 International (KH04, 2001-2002) When I applied to MBA programs, I was looking for a different perspective than what I could get in Hawaii. The Kellogg-HKUST EMBA program had an international viewpoint and really delivered an innovative curriculum offering some of the best marketing and nance courses available in the world. As an architect and marketing director, the broader viewpoint expands the range of consultation services to resort and hotel developers. I commuted from Hawaii to attend this program and made some sacrices. However, in the long run, it was very much worth it all.

Jake Sims
Chief Architect Cathay Pacic Airways (KH15, 2012-2013) When I selected an EMBA program, I prioritized diversity of the student body, both cultural and professional, as a core requirement. Having worked on four continents, I realized the value in understanding, appreciating and leveraging the unique perspectives of different cultures and backgrounds. In fact, being able to understand and work within a multicultural environment is critical to our success in todays business world, especially here in Asia. From Moscow to Manila and from executives to entrepreneurs, the Kellogg-HKUST programs diversity creates a truly unique learning experience that extends far beyond the classroom. I have no doubt that the experience will benet us for years to come.


Perfect learning environments

Kellogg School of Management

Leaders understand the importance of having the optimum environment in which to think, plan, and study. For those taking part in the Kellogg-HKUST program, the working environment could hardly be better. Both universities boast tranquil, attractive campuses which provide ideal contexts for the vigorous intellectual exchanges that are hosted there. Participants will nd themselves inspired by the place, and invigorated by the company.

Tranquil lakeside facilities James Allen Center, Kellogg School of Management, Chicago, USA

In addition to its many dining rooms, lounges, recreation areas and study rooms, the facility contains 150 bedrooms and is staffed 24 hours a day. Teaching facilities The Kellogg teaching facilities are in the Allen Centers instructional space, with several large classrooms, a 250-seat, two-tiered amphitheater, and numerous smaller rooms for workshops and group seminars.

Samantha Law
Director of Operations Finance Nike Sports (China) Co., Ltd. (KH14, 2011-2012) The width and depth of the perspectives, thought processes and ideas behind all the global executives are amplied further by each individuals own unique and diverse professional and personal background. The multiplier effect is much more than what the number of languages and nationalities that the class statistics can speak for. I joined the Kellogg-HKUST program knowing that it offers insights into business dynamics worldwide but I have departed to embark on a new course of lifelong connections with a worldwide web of evolving intelligence offered by my fellow classmates, professors and alums.

Hiroyuki Kaihoko
Manager Asahi Group Holdings, Ltd. (KH14, 2011-2012) I was attracted to Kellogg-HKUST EMBA and had high expectations for the program because of its strong academic reputation, the deep experience and diversity of the student body, and its location in booming Asia. The program exceeded my expectations. I learned valuable insights from my classmates and developed personal and professional relationships that I expect will continue beyond retirement. I am 100% convinced that my training at Kellogg-HKUST and relationships with my fellow classmates have prepared me to be not only a well-rounded manager but also a leader who can motivate and inspire my colleagues to achieve ambitious goals.


A new window for NPO leaders

There are many qualied leaders in non-prot organizations (NPO), and non-governmental (NGO) organizations that need the kind of education the Kellogg-HKUST program can provide.
These senior managers can bring valuable sharing and perspective into our classroom. These organizations often lack the nancial means to support a world class EMBA yet we know the difference it could make for their organizations. To recruit the cream of leadership talent, the NPO Tuition Award aims to provide support for the NPO participants in the worldclass program. The Award will be up to 25% of the programs tuition fee. A generous donation of HK$1.1 million has been made by Prof. Larry Franklin, a professor who has taught the program for the past decade, towards the setting up of the Award. His donation is matched by the HKUST Business School. Alumni have also been contributing to this fund. The Award will be given to an admitted participant who has a strong background and interest in NPO work. The candidate will be required to remain within the non-prot charitable sector for an agreed period of time after graduation.

Thomas Chan, Honorary President, World Vision China Board Member, World Vision Hong Kong (KH03, 2000-2001) I decided to take the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA program because I felt I needed to learn management techniques and the best practices of industries from other international executives. The program taught me how to ren our management in the areas of nance, marketing, fund-raising and human resources. One of my biggest challenges is nding ways to inspire and motivate staff. They work with us because of a shared vision not for the salary. From the program I learned how to manage expectations and to align vision with achievable goals.

Senior executives of the following NGOs were recipients of the scholarship in the past:
Bless China International Clinton Foundation Greenpeace International Hong Kong Education City Ltd. The Nesbitt Centre Ofce of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

Akihiko Katayama
Head of Retail Risk Analytics, Asia-Pacic HSBC (KH07 , 2004-2005) The Kellogg-HKUST EMBA has helped me appreciate the business I am in, know how to manage it effectively and fell comfortable that I can provide leadership to my organization. By leveraging the 500 years of people experience that I found within my classroom, I was able to simulate a lot of team changes with my classmates and understand the impact of my decision on staff and customers before initiating changes at work. There was something in the classroom that I cannot account for the spirit of classroom learning lives on within us and the relationship I have built during the program continue to grow stronger. I am amazed how much we continue to explore each others passion at work and at home and the nurturing that goes on to channel this passion into something that my company, friends and family can enjoy. Thank you for connecting me to my wonderful friends students and professors, and the capabilities I now have to support a business.
