HKU MBU Global Business Regional Perspective

Our Programmes

The full-time HKU MBA is an intensive 1 year programme with three tracks: the London track, New York track and Hong Kong/China track.

The University of Hong Kong and its prestigious MBA programme is a major participant in and contributor to the business culture of Hong Kong and mainland China. Today’s MBA students demand an approach that sets them up for success both regionally and internationally and provides them with a learning experience that bestows upon them a first-class education, real-world experience, and a deep understanding of international business and the cultural differences and nuances therein. HKU’s full-time MBA programme is specifically designed to produce these outcomes. Our Asia-Pacific and China focus gives our students a unique advantage in building their careers in the region and beyond.
The HKU MBA is offered in both weekday and weekend modes for Part-time programme. Students can choose the study mode that best suits their work commitments. A certain degree of flexibility between weekday and weekend mode courses may be allowed on a case-by-case basis.

The weekday or weekend mode applies to core courses only, with electives offered from a common pool comprising courses in both modes.
The part-time Greater Bay Area (HK-SZ) MBA at HKU is designed to help you comprehend, manage, and capitalize on the region’s dynamic and rapidly evolving business environment while providing maximum flexibility of work-study balance between Shenzhen and Hong Kong throughout the 2-year programme.
