With great emotion, KGSF is pleased to introduce the new international students who arrived to join the KAIST family. This fall 2017, 19 international students from the KOICA program and one student from Hong Kong arrived in Seoul to initiate their master program. It is an honor to introduce some of them and present their backgrounds and their future expectations.

Hiu Ching, Chau (FMBA 2017)

Motivated to acquire greater knowledge to reach competitiveness in the labor market, Hiu Ching, from Hong Kong, enrolled in the Finance MBA program this fall. With a background in Accounting and Finance, Charis (as she likes to be called), chose KAIST for its excellent international reputation and its top ranking in South Korea. For her, even though studying at KAIST is stressful and not easy, KAIST provides the best environment for students to concentrate on their studies. During the interview, she emphasized: “I enjoy talking with people of different nationalities; the class Special Topics in Finance IV not only improves our better understanding of Korean culture but also provides an opportunity for us to know each other’s culture.” After finishing the program in KAIST, she will look for a job in a financial institution in South Korea.


Martha Nabirve (FMBA 2017)

Martha Nabirve, Senior Banking Officer in Uganda, joined the Finance MBA program this fall through the KOICA program. With a bachelor degree in Business Administration obtained from Uganda Christian University, Ms. Nabirve has played important roles as Cash Officer, Banking Officer, and Senior Banking Officer in the Central Bank of Uganda. For Martha, to have chosen KAIST for her graduate degree fits perfectly with her career goals. She always wanted to pursue a Finance MBA in a foreign country, where she can improve her accounting background. Ms. Nabirve is convinced that after her program in KAIST, she will be able to go back to Uganda to practically apply what she have learned in KAIST and will also look forward to assuming a managerial position. Her motivation is to be able to participate actively in the Bank’s decisions, affecting positively the economy of her country.


Nicky Tshimpe (FMBA 2017)

With a degree in Economics and Business Studies from Kigali Independent University (Rwanda), Nicky Tshimpe, from D.R. Congo, joined the Finance MBA program this fall. Before coming to KAIST, Mr. Tshimpe was working for the Ministry of National Economy in the department of Permanent Framework of Economic Consultation. For Nicky, the reason he chose KAIST is that it represents a renowned world university with a well-structured and designed MBA. For him, KAIST symbolizes more than just interesting classes and qualified professors; it exemplifies a place where students have everything that they could need to learn properly and feel motivated. About his future plans, Nicky stated, “I am looking forward to share the experience and the knowledge acquired to convert my education into a useful tool for the development of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa and all over the world where my knowledge will be needed.”


Pleased to receive wonderful new students this year, KGSF wishes them the best.
