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 seven consecutive years and for 3 years average has achieved the No.28 rank worldwide. The Program in the Financial Times ranking has a 3 years average of No. 34 in the world. The school has one of the region’s youngest MBA programs but has managed to grow and build one of its most dynamic in a very short period of time.

The 1-year curriculum allows students to select one of three tracks: London, New York or Hong Kong. All students spend 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.

Percentage of MBAs with Job Offers within Three Months of Graduation: 85%

HKU has not identified its top employers of its MBA Class of 2014 and 2015, preferring to publish a list of recruitment partners.
