Develop your business acumen in the Asia-Pacific region with HKU MBA.

As Hong Kong's top-ranked MBA programme, the HKU Full-time MBA Programme is designed to nurture students to become business leaders. The intensive one-year programme offers three tracks, New York track (Columbia Business School), London track (London Business School), and Hong Kong/China track, empowering students with a truly international business education while giving them a platform to network globally.

Regional Perspective

The Asia-Pacific focus will give you a distinct advantage when building your career in the region. The focus on Asia and China business is highly relevant to the wider region’s dynamic, and ever-evolving business environment.

Case-based Approach

The HKU MBA Programme adopts an experiential learning approach, with extensive use of business cases published by our renowned Asia Case Research Centre (ACRC). Written by eminent professors from the HKU Business School and prominent industry leaders, the business case studies encourage critical thinking that enables students to become effective problem-solvers and decision-makers in today’s rapidly changing business settings. Moreover, the programme’s relatively small class sizes allow for extensive interaction and collaboration.

An Expanded Global Vision

The unique partnerships with two world-renowned business schools, the London Business School and Columbia Business School, provide our students with unmatched opportunities to learn and network.
