THE HULT STUDENT “After 13 years working for the Home Office, I was looking for a business school that could help me gain leadership skills and go further.” Kum Fong Yueng British/Chinese Class of 2019 MBA with a Dual Degree in Masters in Disruptive Innovation London, Shanghai, and San Francisco campuses Languages spoken: English, Cantonese, and Mandarin Why Hult? After 13 years working for the Home Office, I was looking for a business school that could help me gain leadership skills and go further. I felt pigeonholed in the civil service and non-profit sectors and needed exposure to the wider business landscape. Hult seemed like the right place to do all of this, and I was right. Biggest lesson learned? Hult has made me more assertive and confident of what my strengths are. I’ve learned to embrace what I am good at, rather than focusing on what I’m not. I’ve also learned by studying in such a diverse cohort that I don’t need to be good at everything. When working as a team, every individual brings different strengths to the table. What’s it like in the Hult classroom? Hult professors deliver interactive lectures. They all have something to offer due to their years of experience working in a variety of industries. Classes include practical activities that allow us to identify and analyze our own reactions to situations we may have assumed we would have reacted differently to. These also give us invaluable experience interacting with and getting feedback from clients. Hear from more Hult students: hult.edu/mba-stories How has the program helped you to achieve your aims? It has broadened my horizons and given me real-life experience of working alongside people from other cultures, industries, and programs who all bring different perspectives and ideas. The Career Development team gave me the opportunity to connect with and speak to alumni who are based in other countries and industries. They provided insights into the challenges they experienced when first entering the business world and shared tips on how to overcome them. HULT.EDU/APPLY 25
