About Master of Business Administration at The University of Hong Kong

Full-time MBA – London Track, New York Track, Hong Kong/China Track

The full-time HKU Master of Business Administration (MBA) curriculum is designed to provide students with a first-class education, real-world experience, a deep understanding of Asia and international business, and sincere appreciation of cultural differences. The intensive 1-year programme structure is unique in offering a truly global experience. Students start their academic journey with nine months of study at the University of Hong Kong, during which they take core courses and electives with an Asia focus. Student participate in a China Immersion Programme and various careers-focused international treks to provide students with opportunities to witness the economic landscape and business culture in China. In their final four months, students complete the programme with elective courses at London Business School, Columbia Business School or Fudan University School of Management, or they may elect to remain in Hong Kong. Partnerships with such world-renowned business schools as London Business School, Columbia Business School and Fudan University School of Management offer our students unparalleled educational, experiential and networking opportunities in some of the world’s most vibrant cities and dynamic economies.

HKU MBA is ranked amongst the best in the world: For 9 consecutive years ranked No. 1 in Asia by The Economist. In the Financial Times (FT) ranking MBA is No. 41 in the world, FT 'Top MBAs for Finance', No. 13 in the world and FT 'Top MBAs for Women', is No.6 in the world. In the Forbes Full-time MBA Rankings: The Best International MBAs: One Year Programs, is ranked No. 7 and in Times Higher Education/Wall Street Journal ranked No.1 one year MBA in the world. Given the relatively short history of the full- time MBA programme at HKU, the Faculty of Business and Economics' achievement of such high regional and world rankings is impressive indeed.

Part-time MBA – Weekday and Weekend Modes

The part-time MBA programme follow the same rigorous core curriculum as the full-time programme, and students share the same world-class faculty. The format, however, is specifically designed to support professionals working in Hong Kong and nearby areas with the opportunity to earn an MBA on a part-time basis without stepping out of full-time employment. The part-time MBA is offered both in weekday and weekend modes, providing maximum flexibility to students eager to accelerate their careers. Students select courses in either the weekday or weekend mode for their core courses, and choose seven electives offered from a common pool which consists of weekday- and weekend-mode courses.

The degree can be completed in a minimum of two years and a maximum of four years. The programme's modular structure allows students to concentrate on one course at a time for approximately five weeks. Students also have the opportunity to spend a semester at London Business School or Columbia Business School.
