Human Resources is a change agent in an organization. We work with the business leaders collaboratively and propose recommendation on business effectiveness based on our HR professional knowledge and understanding on the external changing market. The BBA (HRM) programme has not only provided me a comprehensive foundation on various business discipline but also equipped me with the crucial skills and social awareness in dealing with people from different levels and nationalities. My study here has indeed been a valuable starting point for my career and personal growth.

Business knowledge is undoubtedly crucial for a job in the business sector. I would say social communication skills are important for a successful career, especially when we have to work as a team. The BBA(IBJ) Programme (now SIM stream) provided me with professional knowledge and helped me develop a keen business sense. It also provided the chance to develop my interpersonal skills through a series of activities. I found that what I gained from the Department of Management is practical and relevant to my workplace.

If I had to do it again, I would definitely make the same decision and study in the Human Resources Management Program at City University of Hong Kong. It is not only the place where I learned to be an HR professional but also where I grew up. The Department of Management provides a dynamic undergraduate curriculum grounded in human resources management that is complemented with distinctive personal and career development programs. We learned how to be effective and efficient managers. In addition, I always felt that there was a friendly relationship among students and professors. I am thankful for the support and encouragement from our professors, lectures and other graduate students.

I would say International Business (Japan Studies) - (now SIM stream) is one of the most outstanding academic programs of the City University of Hong Kong. The prominent scholars from all over the world are the essential resources for providing us with international perspectives to see things globally. Besides, the Department of Management offers lots of opportunity to let students meet with distinguished persons from different business sectors through a variety of programs, seminars and gatherings. IBJ is a unique program which teaches us what is so about special Japanese culture. We have a strong "Senpai" (Senior) and "Kouhai" (Junior) network. Hopefully, more talents would join us in the future in order to provide even bigger value to the society in Hong Kong and the world.

My current job requires me to learn new knowledge quickly and deal with different people from various cultural backgrounds. The BBA IBJ programme equips me with such essential skills. The programme is designed to train business professional with in-depth cultural knowledge. By using the programme structure as a guide, I am able to learn different business cultures within a short period of time, not only Japan, but also Korea, Germany and even China. As a commercial dispute resolution practitioner, it is my key advantage to provide professional advise with business sense and culture awareness. The knowledge from my IBJ years gave me solid foundation to be a competent professional.

Connecting the dots' inspires me in a graduation speech by Steve Jobs. In CityU, the BBA Program enables me to advance my communication and personal skills development. These skills play a major role in my career path and help me going further.
