Emil Chan (’06) decided to embrace the culture of change in Hong Kong by broadening his horizons with an MBA from UNI. Since graduating, Chan has gone from a self-confessed “technology geek” working in a German bank, to a life of entrepreneurship. A few months ago, Chan and a partner started their own corporate training company while, at the same time, Chan serves as the managing director of Greater China Capital, Inc.
“My current project is to consolidate a Chinese technology company with two other technology companies in Canada and Finland,” he said.
For Chan, one of the major bonuses of the UNI MBA program in Hong Kong was a focus on networking, an area in which he had very little experience, but one that has since proved invaluable to his work in mainland China.
“China is different. Most international rules and practices won’t apply on the mainland,” he said. “In order to do good business in China, we must understand 7the culture, legal system and the importance of connections and networking.”
Recently, Emil becomes the Chairman at the Association of Cloud and Mobile Computing Professionals (ACMCP)
