To Inspire. To Be Inspired. – 30 Stories on HKUST Faculty, Alumni and Students

The Wiedenmann brothers, Pierre, Francois, and Frederic, are true citizens of the world. Before arriving in Hong Kong, they already had rich experiences and insights to draw upon, but their time at HKUST School of Business and Management helped to springboard them even further. The three Wiedenmann brothers have all taken different paths to their current careers, but they’re united 61 in crediting their time at HKUST, in Asia’s economic center and with a super-diverse student body, as being the experience that spurred their entrepreneurial spirits, work ethic and potential. Even as polyglots — all three speak French, German, English and Mandarin — the brothers were grateful to be part of such an international student body, and they shared in the university’s culture of friendliness, hard work and open-mindedness. At HKUST, the brothers gained an international exposure that they don’t believe they would have got studying anywhere else in the world.
