Despite being one of the region’s youngest programs, the University of Hong Kong’s full-time MBA has already made a name for itself.  By blending an Asia-focused curriculum with Western methodologies and international study opportunities at three leading business schools, the school continues to climb MBA rankings.  The program topped The Economist’s ranking of MBA programs in Asia for sixth consecutive years and came in at No. 26 in the worldwide listing. The Program in the Financial Times ranking, has a 3 years average of No. 34 in the world. We are one of the region’s youngest MBA programs, but have managed to grow and build one of its most dynamic in a very short period of time.

The 14-month curriculum allows students to select one of three tracks: London, New York or Hong Kong. All students spend their first month in Beijing for the China Immersion Program, which encompasses orientation and MBA 101 preparation.  Students spend the next nine months in Hong Kong covering the Asia-focused core curriculum and enroll in two to three electives.  Core courses range from Corporate Finance to Global Economy, while elective options include Business and Economics of Multinational Enterprises Strategy and Legal Environment in Asia.

MBAs complete the program at London Business School/Columbia Business School/Fudan University or remain in Hong Kong, depending on the track they have chosen.  All together students complete 11 core courses and 7 electives. HKU emphasizes an experiential-learning approach that pulls from business cases written by faculty and published by the university’s own Asia Case Research Center.

Students with an entrepreneurial bent can take advantage of the Business Lab elective, which offers MBAs an opportunity to incubate business concepts and hear from entrepreneurs, investors and industry experts.
