Christina Hau (’08) has an entrepreneurial side she needed to explore. After more than 10 years in the corporate sector, her decision to undertake further study was prompted by a desire to go into business for herself.
“I wanted to have more flexible work hours and develop my own path, so my husband and I decided to start our own business,” Hau said. “Being a young CEO and managing a company meant I definitely needed more knowledge to equip myself. I needed an MBA.”
Now a UNI MBA graduate, Hau is profuse in her praise of the program’s interactivity with both professors and classmates and says that though she often hears people complain about the stress of combining an MBA program with full-time work, she would have no hesitation in doing the whole thing over again.
“To me, the whole UNI MBA was a joyful experience. The program is professional and enjoyable,” she said. “I like that the program has course hours in which we can interact with real professors and classmates, unlike distance learning.”
