iVillage is an LLC for students interested in exploring cultures outside their own, who have respect for divergent cultural values and enthusiasm for living and learning in an international community. Global cultures and lifestyles are experienced through interaction with international students and faculty and through cultural events. As the LLC aims to integrate local and non-local students by creating an international community, 50% local and 50% non-local students with a shared commitment to diversity will be selected to join this community. 



Prof. Tat Koon KOH, Assistant Professor, Dept of Information Systems, Business Statistics & Operations Management

Tat Koon is an Assistant Professor in Information Systems at HKUST. He received his Ph.D. and MSc. from Carnegie Mellon University, and B.Bus from Nanyang Technological University. One of the fun/crazy things he has done (to date) was to cofound an online Business-to-Business exchange during his freshman year. The startup was an ideal platform for him to experiment and implement various e-business strategies such as growth hacking and freemium revenue model, long before these concepts take root in the tech world. Although he did not get on Forbes’ list of “Richest People in Tech” because of the startup (how unfortunate!), he accumulated a rich set of e-business experiences that is still motivating his academic and professional interests. He has advised various tech startups (including those by HKUST undergraduate, MBA, and EMBA students) on their business ideas and strategies.

Ms. Lily Wong, Instructional Assistant, Dept of Marketing
