The Associate Dean of the HKUST MBA, Sean Ferguson, talks about the opportunities in the Asian job market for business managers with a global view. He argues that the focus has now shifted from doing business in China to doing business with China, and that requires managers who can broker two sides of a deal, understand Asian culture, and bring ideas and resources for a new and emerging consumer nation like China." In Ferguson's opinion, opportunities in the region are unrivalled, and talks about the mindset you will need to thrive. he feels that you need to have a risk taker edge and an entrepreneurial spirit to make things work. He also emphasizes the importance of your network, how to articulate the way that you provide value, and the importance of taking ownership of your career.
