I do not think that this metric is available outside admissions, but I could ask. I think the best bet is just to see how you stack up against the class profiles (avg. GMAT, yrs experience, etc.) and also be prepared for the interview as discussed earlier in the thread.

Better than looking at a admissions acceptance ratio, that doesn't say much about the school or how to prepare for the interview.

Hope that helps and will ask around regarding the ratio, if even available.

Hi mstansfield,

Thanks very much for your insight.

Do you have any idea as to how many application do they receive in the first round of application ? i can understand that no official or accurate figs can be found out, but if you could give a rough idea of no of students applying to HKUST in the first round

Second, i read somewhere that 3:10 is the selection to no of applicants ratio, how true it could be ?

Seems rather dead in here! Has anyone had their interviews yet? I'm curious as to how people are going on with their applications.

Thank you very much for the info. I got an interview invite on Nov 25, and the Skype interview is going to take place on Dec 9. I will prepare well for the interview and see how it goes. Cheers to everyone who is interviewing this week!

ignus99,

Hope all is well.

I am a current student in my first year at HKUST. The interview is a discussion around your background and future career goals. There is one round of interviews, either by Skype or in person here in HK, where you will likely speak with a professor/dean and admissions.

The questions to be expected are 'Why an MBA?', 'What are your goals after the MBA?' 'How does the MBA help you with achieving your career goals?'. All three of these questions are important not just for the interview, but for you to rationalize for yourself why you are getting an MBA.

Last bit of advice is know the school and what it represents, namely global vision, leadership and a Asia/China focus.

Hope that helps and let me know if you have anymore question about the process or the school.

Awesome! Two interviews on the same day can be pretty overwhelming though. Both via Skype?

Finished my interview today! It has two sessions and lasted about one and half hour in total. The first one is about potential whereas the second one is about motivation and background. I have to say that I am not sure how I did in the first one but I definitely did well in the second one.
Keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best!

A little about my profile:
GMAT: 690
GPA: 3.34 (Boston University)
3 years work experience in the US and China

Good luck to all!
