Mr Paul KONG Ching-ho, BBA (Hons) in Global Marketing and Supply Chain Management 2022


“Open Up to Opportunities”
After getting into HKMU, Paul chose a major in Global Marketing and Supply Chain Management. He sought changes and explored opportunities to connect with people and build his communication skills. People would be surprised that he was not as outgoing as he is now during secondary school.


Q. What led you to take a Business degree at HKMU?
I was attracted by the Global Immersion Programme (GIP) offered in the bachelor's degree programme in the first place. I learned that there were language courses and overseas exchange opportunities for students to broaden their horizons, which fit me as a person who is keen on learning through experience.


Q. How do you see the skills or knowledge gained from MUBA?
I can apply knowledge obtained in the classroom in real life situations through school activities, like the Hackathon and site visit to DHL Central Asia Hub. It was my first time to observe the daily operations of an air express cargo terminal. Such first-hand experience was valuable to me as I could have a better idea of what is happening in the market and picture my working routine in that setting afterwards.


Q. What opportunities did you have at MUBA that helped you get where you are today?
A. Student Society's Experience
As soon as I started studying at MUBA, I joined Business Management Society, where I dared to step out of my comfort zone and took up the role of Marketing Officer. I made a great number of business communications to get sponsorship for our events. People would be surprised by what I did because I used to be shy and less active back in secondary school. The year of running the Society was rewarding in that I have become more confident when interacting with others and expanded my social network since then.

Internship Experience
I had an internship at the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, where I served in the Human Resources Department and supported a number of events. I had to communicate with different parties in the company, from the management to my internship peers. Not only did I boost my communication skills, but I also got to know myself better through other's eyes, and overall I have become more confident.


Q. What would you like to achieve in 10 years' time?
I foresee myself having my own network and being influential – a key defining myself as a successful person.


Q. What advice would you give to our freshmen to work toward their goals and ambitions?
To freshmen, grab every chance to talk to people around you. You cannot imagine how they will response and may challenge your thoughts, and eventually, help you become your best.
