Christian Anthony Encarnacion, Spring 2015 Participant
I had the privilege to work with an group of students from Germany, Norway, Uruguay, and from California's UC Irvine on social entrepreneurship and social business projects throughout my semester at HKU. Working with these guys was the most challenging, terrifying, thing I've done - it was also a wake up call to what the rest of the world is working like and how I should work to keep up, both in school and professionally. Traveling around southeast Asia and experiencing the most beautiful beaches in the world, great food, and excellent conversation from good company was nice too.

Spring 2016 Participant
The culture and Hong Kong as a city are absolutely stunning. There is so much variation. It is an amazing place. The university is great and for the most part, the people are interesting and helpful.

Spring 2019 Participant
I loved getting to be so immersed in the business-side of Hong Kong and Asia. Being a business major I think this was best place that I could have been to really learn from some amazing Professors and professionals on what Business is like in this area and how we could take so many things back to the US.
