Student Reflections

With the DBA programme, I learn from industry leaders and classmates who came from different countries. We explore and share innovative ways of doing business. Econometric methods, qualitative research and statistical analysis help me understand more about the convoluted business world.

I decided to pursue the PolyU DBA when my learning curve gradually flattened out. This programme enables me to enrich my knowledge of business administration and acquire in-depth knowledge of econometrics and statistical analysis.

I began the DBA journey with a dream, ambition, curiosity and anxiety. During this first year, I reached one milestone of managing the triangular balance among my 3 worlds - Business, Academic and Social. I have also deepened my knowledge and enhanced my skills particularly in relation to leadership. Student life here is challenging, demanding and satisfying!
