Full-Time MBA

Accreditations: AACSB and EQUIS

Programme features

The University of Hong Kong (HKU) MBA is an intensive 14-month full-time MBA programme offered with the option of three streams: the London Track with the London Business School; the New York Track with Columbia Business School; the Hong Kong/China track with Fudan University.

HKU, and its unique MBA programme, is a major participant in, and contributor to, the business culture of Hong Kong and mainland China.

  • MBA students today demand an approach that can set them up for success both regionally and across a wider world; a learning experience that bestows upon them a first-class education, real-world experience, and a deep understanding of international business, and cultural differences and nuances. Our full-time MBA programme is specifically designed to produce these outcomes. The Asia-Pacific and China focus gives our students a unique advantage to build their career in the region and beyond.

Learn business where the business is.

  • Mainland Chinese come to HKU to look at their country from the outside, and to learn the business methodologies of the West; while overseas students get to experience China and Asia first hand. Both are able to relate their knowledge to a global playing field.

Diversity is key.

  • Our location in a city with such a rich business and entrepreneurial heritage is an immense advantage for students.
  • Not surprisingly, Hong Kong has become a magnet for MBA students from all over the world. A significant percentage of our student body is from overseas and China, which, combined with local students, produces an exciting and stimulating mix of backgrounds. Our professors are all distinguished in their fields and come from different countries, creating a truly international experience.

Partnerships.

  • The unique partnerships with world-renowned business schools such as London Business School and Columbia Business School offer our students unmatched opportunities in terms of educational experience and networking. Our existing partnership with Fudan University in China further complements the overall experience.
