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.
with London Business School
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 upon successful completion of the programme.

with Columbia Business School
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 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.
