Their guidance helped Bella gain the confidence she needed to tackle her biggest insecurities. “I joined the HKBU School of Business’s Toastmasters Club –– an organisation that teaches English public speaking and leadership skills, and instantly fell in love with it. The vibe was very supportive, and people were keen on learning and growing,” she says. “Then, I participated in the competition World’s Got Talent @HKBU 2021 by performing public speaking, and won the bronze prize. It was a humbling opportunity and I am grateful for the platform the HKBU School of Business gave me.”
These opportunities resulted in Bella landing a full-time role in Hong Kong as a Business Advisor (APAC) at Odoo. Her role entails providing consultation services to businesses across industries. With the MHRM programme, she developed all the skills she needed to excel. “I was exposed to different industries and companies and I got a better sense of how they worked,” she says. “I also learned a lot about employee engagement and communication –– all of which are very relevant to my current role.”
Bella Indah Sanusi was an Assistant Sales Manager at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort Hotel before she decided to expand her skillset in opportunity-filled Hong Kong. Among all the choices available, she chose the Master of Human Resources Management (MHRM) programme at the HKBU School of Business, hoping to understand the diverse needs of diverse people. To boot, she received the International Postgraduate Scholarship (IPS), which included a full tuition fee waiver plus a living allowance of approximately US$12,820.
The first 14 days of Bella’s journey in Hong Kong began in quarantine, which “felt like a staycation” and made it incredibly easy for her to adapt to life on campus. There, she immersed herself into her programme, building a strong network of industry professionals and like-minded individuals. Programme Director of the MHRM programme, Dr. Emily Huang and the Associate Head of the Department of Management, Dr. Jamie Cheung, stood out –– both were ever-willing to provide meaningful feedback.
