MSc in Advanced Information System, Hong Kong Baptist University

Why did you do a postgraduate course?

I majored in statistics in my undergraduate studies. Nevertheless, I am more interested in computer and information systems. At the same time, I wanted to leave my home city to learn in another metropolitan city so that I could widen my exposure and explore the extra opportunities. Therefore, this MSc programme is a perfect choice for me.

How did you choose this course/institution?

I learned this programme through its official website. I was very impressed by the programme contents and its learning activities. I believed that I could gain valuable learning experience and knowledge from this programme. At the same time, Hong Kong is a very famous world financial center, while its East-meets-West culture is special and attractive. I believed that I could gain valuable living experience in Hong Kong. Therefore, I selected this programme.

What research are you currently pursuing?

I am studying different aspects of information systems (e.g., design and implementation methodologies, security and auditing, user interface design, etc.).

What are your favourite and least favourite parts about postgraduate life?

I enjoy very much the group work among students. In group discussions, I could exchange opinions with my group members, so that we could come up with the best possible results. I could also learn how to cooperate with the other people. Some courses involve oral presentation. While I am weak in oral presentation, I understand that oral presentation skills are important in the work environment. I am glad that the programme provides the opportunity for me to improve my weakness.

When do you think is the best time to do a postgraduate degree?

It is never too late to learn. As long as we could spend the necessary time, it is always the best time to do a postgraduate degree.

What advice would you give to someone considering a postgraduate degree?

It is important to understand your own interest and career plan, and then select a postgraduate degree programme that could fit your interests and needs.
