MBA Connect Story:
Chiharu Kajinami (Japan)

Full-time Class of 2012

When talking to Chiharu, one is amazed by her passion and her determination to experience every possible aspect of life. The possibility of studying for an MBA degree first occurred to Chiharu during her undergraduate studies; when the right opportunity arose during her late twenties, she put the idea into practice. Two years have passed since Chiharu graduated with an MBA. She has recently relocated to Beijing to take up the position of Account Executive Director at Hakuhodo, the second largest advertising company in Japan.

Elite Mentorship Program 2014
Kick-off Gathering
The Elite Mentorship Program once again had a successful kick-off dinner on September 25 at Langham Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui. This year we have 50 elite mentors in the program and most of them had joined the MBA students as well as the Faculty and the MBA Programs executives in this signature event. Early in the evening, students and mentors met each other for the very first time. After a round of warm introductions, the evening was finally kicked-off by a welcoming address from Professor Vernon Hsu, Interim Dean of CUHK Business School, followed by a thank you note from Mr Armstrong Lee, President of the CUHK MBA Alumni Association and a greeting note from Mr Charles Wang, President of the Student Association of Class of 2016.

All guests enjoyed the gathering and the night was filled with energy and aspirations. Both the mentors and mentees were excited to learn from each other. On top of the kick-off event being a successful one, the evening also signified the beginning of new relationships, new mentorships and new rising talents being guided and coached by some of the most experienced industry leaders and business experts in Hong Kong. The MBA Career Management Center wishes these mentors and mentees a wonderful mentorship experience and journey ahead!
