14-month Full-time MBA Programme

The full-time MBA programme is an intensive 14-month programme with three tracks. All students spend one month in Beijing and nine months in Hong Kong. Then, depending on the track they choose, they spend four months in London, New York or Hong Kong / Shanghai.

London Track
with London Business School

Since its establishment in 2006, the London track of the HKU full-time MBA programme, an intensive 14-month programme operated in partnership with London Business School (LBS), has attracted universal praise. Students are guaranteed a place to study in London for three to four months after completing all core courses in Hong Kong.

Upon completion of the core courses, students opting for the London track spend a full semester taking up to five elective courses side-by-side with students enrolled in London Business School’s MBA, EMBA and Master of Finance programmes. They thus have access to the School’s distinguished student, alumni and corporate networks as they participate in London-based events, meet illustrious business leaders as part of the School’s famed speaker series and visit leading firms in the City. London Business School issues HKU MBA students with a certificate and official transcript and provides them with a wide range of alumni-affiliated services upon successful completion of the programme.

New York Track
with Columbia Business School

The HKU Faculty of Business and Economics and Columbia Business School (CBS) entered into a partnership in 2007 that allows a significant number of HKU MBA students to take a range of elective courses at CBS for a full semester. This partnership represents the culmination of a triumvirate of premier business schools working together to provide a world-class MBA education and create alumni networks in Hong Kong, London and New York – a manifestation of the natural synergy amongst the world’s three major financial centres.

Upon completion of the core courses at HKU, students opting for the New York track spend a semester taking up to five elective courses side-by-side with Columbia MBA and EMBA students, giving them access to Columbia Business School’s distinguished student, alumni and corporate networks as they participate in Columbia events, meet illustrious business leaders as part of the School’s famed speaker series and visit leading firms in New York City. Columbia Business School issues HKU MBA students with a certificate and an official transcript and provides them with a wide range of alumni-affiliated services upon successful completion of the programme.

Hong Kong/China Track
Students who prefer studying in Hong Kong take all of their courses at HKU, many of them alongside our part-time MBA students, most of who are employed at the middle/senior management level in regional companies. Working together with such experienced individuals gives full-time students greater insight into the region and helps them to connect with potential employers.

Alternatively, students on the Hong Kong/China track have the option to take China-focused electives at Fudan University for approximately three months in the spring. Our partnership with Fudan University, a top-ranked university in China, provides students with access to all of the university’s facilities and to the large pool of HKU IMBA alumni in China. In addition to classroom learning, students are exposed to various aspects of the Chinese business world through seminars, industry interfaces, real-world projects and enrichment workshops.

The HKU MBA’s dual focus on Asia and China business renders the programme highly relevant to the wider region’s dynamic, ever-evolving business environment. The China focus is achieved through special courses with China elements, regional case studies, field trips, seminars and conferences, Chinese language training, company visits and the aforementioned Shanghai-based studies.

I did not experience any issues creating my profile and submitting my application. I would suggest you to speak to HKU staff for assistance - my experience is they are very quick with their response. Hope it gets resolved and best luck for your application.

Hi,
I'm a doctor from India and I'm interested in Applying to HKU for Full time MBA. I'm applying for the first time to any MBA program and so I have so many confusions :P First of all, I was going through the Supporting Documents section and I have a few questions about it. I studied from a relatively remote medical university in India and I’m not very sure if my university administration will be able to send back the true copies of transcripts to HKU if I send them the request. I have all the original documents required for the application process with me. Please let me know if there is a way of submitting the photocopies of the original documents as I would need to keep the originals with me.
Also, for reference forms, will the scanned copies work or the originals need to be submitted?
Please help :roll:

Hi garima138,
You can make a copy of your original transcript and then go to the notary public to certify the copy since we also accept the certified true copy.
And for the reference forms, you can ask your referee(s) to directly send us the scanned copy with his/her signature.
Feel free to drop us an email to "mbaadmissions@hku.hk" should you have any questions :)

Hi,

I was interviewed on 3rd Dec by Mr Tom and Mr Sachin, both are great interviewers.
Today I received an invite for the 2nd round of video interview, which is a little strange (atleast for me)
For this interview I need to make a presentation for 15mins.
Could someone please guide what is expected in a presentation video interview
Do I have to prepare a presentation and during the interview share my screen so they can view the slides and can hear what I have to say about it?
Or do I have to email my presentation before hand so they have an idea what I will speak about and be ready with their questions?
Additionally, what typical questions should I expect in such a format, should I expect the typical interview questions such as why MBA etc? or questions limited to the presentation?

I am sorry I am new to this format of interview.

Kind Regards.
