Ryan Gonsalves

Head of International Mortgage


When I moved to Hong Kong in January 2009 to take up my position as the Senior Regional Mortgage Leader for Asia Pacific at The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited (HSBC), I was also looking for the right MBA program to boost, surprisingly, my confidence.

It was a very practical course. I was able to apply what I’d learnt from the course directly into my working life. For example, to support my MBA projects and assignments, I would arrange to meet the senior leaders at the bank. For an assignment topic on motivation I met the HR Director for HSBC Asia and when a question for marketing needed to be tackled I sat with the Marketing Proposition team to get a practical understanding of how they approach the problems in real life. The benefits gained from the programme will last throughout my career and I’ve recommended three people to do the course at Manchester.
