I want to do an MBA with concentration in finance and post-MBA I want to work in Asia. Therefore, HKUST fits the bill, being in a thriving economic centre and strong focus on Asia.
However, I have a few questions -
1) Since I am Indian, will it be tough to get a work permit in HK? Do they the companies help in getting one?
2) Since my concentration is in finance, will a non-Mandarin speaker be at a disadvantage?
3) For learning Madarin, would you suggest to be thorough with both speaking and writing skills?
4) Will a Madarin-speaker have a better job prospects in Singapore too?

Opinions are welcome here :D

1. i don't believe you'll be at a disadvantage applying for a work permit in HK as an indian. and yes, companies are likely to help you get a work permit if they're hiring you out of an mba.
2. not really since the business language in finance will still be english most of the time. however, that being said, mandarin is always a plus.
3. speaking is more important than writing in HK since you'll only be writing english. if you're working in beijing or shanghai that might be different.
4. unlikely because Singapore deals with most of the southeastern Asian businesses, and they don't speak mandarin down there.
