In October, AsBAA Discovery supported a delegation of MBA students in their annual “Career Trek” to Singapore. The initiative from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology is a collaboration with AsBAA Discovery to connect MBA students with advice, information, and careers opportunities in business aviation. Thank you to HKUST, and AsBAA members, Aon, Jet Aviation, World Fuel Services, VistaJet, Universal Weather and Aviation, and Hongkong Jet for volunteering at the 2019 Career Trek!

“HKUST MBA is one of the leading business schools in Asia. As educator and facilitator for students’ career transformation, we organise an annual “Career Trek” to visit leading companies in Singapore, which offer students an “out of classroom” opportunity to learn about various industries and inspire students to build ambitious career goal through interaction with senior executives.

This year, we have the privilege to partner with AsBAA Discovery Program again to organise visits that provided our MBA students a valuable opportunity to understand about the business aviation industry. At Jet Aviation, students learnt about the MRO business through a rare opportunity to visit the business jets’ hanger and interactions with Juliet Samraj, Marketing, Communications & Customer Experience Manager and the engineering team; at Aon Aviation Risk Solutions, students gained a deep appreciation about the insurance brokerage business through an insightful sharing by Gary Moran, Head of Aviation. Also, students had learnt about future of business aviation and career opportunities through an inspiring presentation by Precelia Au of AsBAA and World Fuel Services.

Our school is very thankful for AsBAA to generously provide such career inspiration and industry knowledge sharing with our MBA students. It’s one of the highlights during their MBA journey.”
