HKU has long been my dream school owing to its state-of-the-art campus as well as the diverse student body. I chose to pursue Asset Management and Private Banking as I have always been interested in the business field and believe that the curriculum would help me develop a comprehensive skillset since it incorporates hands-on work experience into the curriculum which would allow me to apply theories and technical knowledge I have attained in classes effectively. Moreover, I look forward to joining FBE's enrichment programmes and going on exchange as I believe that such exposure would allow me to broaden my horizons and continue to achieve personal growth.Yip, Lang Sen Samuel (BFin(AMPB))
