Asia Exposure is the first step to understanding a career in finance in an Asian hub, directly from the people who live and work there.

About

From 28th August to 1st September 2017, LSESU Asia Careers Society hosted its 11th annual Asia Exposure in Hong Kong.

 

Asia Exposure is a 5-day event in which 20-30 selected students from top universities (namely LSE, Imperial, Oxford and Cambridge) visit leading financial institutions in Hong Kong. It gives students a deeper understanding of a career in Asia and the respective skills required for the role.

 

Participants tour the firms, attend various seminars and skills sessions, and network with representatives from different departments. By the end of the trip, they will have learnt about the various functions in a financial firm and gained a first-hand impression of what working in Asia is like.

 

Candidates who demonstrate a strong passion for the industry during the events may be given an opportunity to be fast-tracked into the interview stage. Asia Exposure has been highly successful in the past, as many participants have managed to secure internship offers from prestigious institutions.

 

This year, we are proud to have included firms in both banking and business areas with 13 financial institutions. It was definitely a fulfilling experience for both delegates and the participating firms.
