DeKrey, Associate Dean and Program Director of MBA Program in Saudi Arabia, in his welcome address thanked Aramco and our faculty as well as staff who have contributed to the program since its launch. “I am glad to see our program receive many positive comments and recognition from students, when they can effectively transform the skills and knowledge they learnt to their work,” said Professor DeKrey.

Mr Faisal Alireza, Vice President of Human Resources, Aramco Asia, gave a congratulatory speech to the Class and exchanged corporate gifts with Professor DeKrey.

Mr Zaid Musallam, the representative of the Class of 2017, shared how he stepped out of his comfort zone and took the MBA program. The HKUST MBA journey turned out to be a rewarding life-long experience to him. He ended by encouraging his fellow classmates to dare to make a difference, to change the world and to dream.

Outstanding Student Awards were presented by Professor DeKrey to recognize the academic achievements made by top students in their two-year rewarding learning journey.

Both HKUST and Saudi Aramco look forward to the continued collaboration and welcoming a new intake in July 2017.
