come on UPGRAYEDD, R2 is very close now. :)

Yeah i am chinese but have australian nationality, so don't know whether they will count me in chinese pool or oceania pool (if there is one). But it does make sense coz i cant imagine how you gonna survive if u cant speak chinese in mainland china or hong kong (for non-finance fellows). I think we actually have benefits than pure western applicants or chinese applicants coz we have been exposed to both cultures so we are sort of "in-the-middle", similar to what hong kong is right now.

australia is 3 hours ahead of hong kong time, so i didn't miss R1.:) However, still wondering where my ref are doing coz i only have 1 submitted, still waiting for another 2.

Here's what the alum/ambassador said:

Any given year, there is approximately 20-30% PRC students. The other Asian faces are from other Asian counties or returnees from North America. But yes, I would say Chinese and Chinese-descent makes up majority of the class.

Hi all, I received my interview invitation this morning-- quite a shock given we just submitted our apps last Monday!

Anyone else? The options are to Skype or to fly to HK, which would be quite a strain on my budget at this moment. Do you think to Skype would be a severe disadvantage?

haha, glad i am in the middle, not low, not high. Anyway, i guess they are sending invites to North A first, which is a little bit piss me off. So far havn't heard anyone from other geo locations got interview invite.

I had my two Skype interviews 2 evenings ago. I found it quite stressful, being as there are so many elements (like the connectivity!) beyond my control. I set up my computer elevated on a pile of books, put up a backdrop and moved a lot of lighting into the area to make it seem more professional.

I spoke with an accounting professor in addition to the Associate Director of the MBA Program. Both were really nice. The professor was an Aussie! Overall they asked the questions you would expect: why now, why HKUST, what do you bring to the table. The Asso. Dir. asked more in-depth questions on my work experience. They also both asked what other schools I was applying to, and why. Overall I think my interviews went well, at least I hope! I feel like they are moving quite quickly and might even know a yay/nay by Xmas!

Well, I am not really a 'technical' person, but the Asso. Dir. did ask questions like, how did you do this? What methodology do you use? Do you use external/3rd party data? I was quite surprised by these, but since they are just questions about my work, they were easy to answer.

hey all,

I share this with you:

I believe the same people interviewed me like in NYCgirl's case. 2 calls. Both were very friendly and did not create the feeling of an interrogation.

No. 1 (prof): Why MBA and why HKUST? What do you expect to contribute to the community? What do you expect from your student colleagues? Very comfortable talk.
No. 2 (AD): The "experience" was very similar to the first interview, but the questions were more customized to my CV. In fact, I found this interview harder.

good luck to everyone,
berger
