Hey,

I'm in the program along with Mridul and would be glad to help out clarify doubts and let you know more about our program as well. #mUSThaveMBA. Responses may be a bit delayed but keep the questions coming!

Hey .. on their website it says they let short listed candidates know within 8 weeks of application regarding the interview. They also stay that final admissions results will be e-mailed within 3 month of application date.


Its under the FAQ section on the MBA HKUST website

"...Applicants who are short-listed for interviews are notified by eight weeks after the application deadline. Admissions results are sent out via mail twelve weeks after the application deadline .."

hope this helps good luck

Hi all,

In the interview mail that I received from HKUST MBA, it also does mention that:
=====================================================================
If you are attending a Skype interview, you can mail the document(s) to the MBA Office:
- Official transcript in an envelope sealed by your University / the issuing organization
- Certified true copy of your graduate certificate (not necessary for degree obtained from Universities in Hong Kong). You may obtain a certified true copy through the service provided by either a notary public, chartered accountant or practicing solitcitor
- Official TOEFL / IELTS score report (if applicable)
All of the above documents must be supplemented with English translation. The documents are not required to arrive at the MBA Office prior the Skype interview, but we do ask
========================================================================

So, may I request if someone can please suggest as to what does official transcript means because I have never come across it before and am I supposed to send it before a particular date?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Regards
Sumit

Your under-grad college will usually give a consolidate document of your academic performance. It will have other details as well - language medium, projects etc. These are given upon special request for applications to higher education. The document comes with a official college stamp.

Hi All,

I finished both of my interviews till Nov 30. However, I do not yet know if HKUST has received the documents from my undergrad college. Do they email you to confirm the same?

Thanks,

Hi all,

Was done with my second interview on 28th Nov. 2016 and thereafter did send the required documents to MBA office but haven't heard anything thereafter.

Can anyone please suggest, if HKUST intimates the outcome(selected or not selected) via mail.

Regards
Sumit

My institute forgot to post the transcripts because the transcripts team was understaffed! Have got the sealed envelopes from them and will be doing so myself tomorrow.

I'm super tense now. Have written to the MBA admissions team explaining my situation. Sending all my documents tomorrow by express courier. Hope this does not adversely impact my candidature :? :|

Can someone tell me if delay in sending transcripts will be looked upon negatively?

Read in one of the previous year posts - some people got notified by email, some people got a call to communicate acceptance.

Hi all,

I did upload my Under-Grad transcript as a part of my application on HKUST MBA site but guess my Under-Grad University didn't send it out.

Is it possible that I can send the stamped photocopy of same to HKUST as not sure whether original copy should be sent or not.

Please suggest.

Regards
Sumit

Hi all,

Just wanted to share the moment of joy...no surprises for guessing though :) :)
I called up HKUST MBA AdCom to find out the status of my application and was thrilled to hear that I have made it through...got speechless and short of words.
With regards to documents, one can submit the hardcopies even after you get a final call.

Thanks all for your kind advise and hope to meet most of you at HKUST MBA.

Regards
Sumit
