HKU Part-time MBA Advantage

Flexibility: Weekday/ Weekend Modes and Modular Structure


Weekday and Weekend Modes

The HKU MBA is now offered in both weekday and weekend modes. 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.

Weekday Mode

Part-time students study in the heart of the city at our Town Centre in Admiralty. Classes meet twice a week on weekday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:45 pm.

Weekend Mode

Classes are held on Saturdays at the Town Centre in Admiralty or the Pokfulam Main Campus of the University. As Saturday classes are conducted only once a week, students are expected to dedicate the entire day, from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, to the programme. Some weekend classes are occasionally conducted on Friday evenings.

Modular Structure

Both weekday and weekend modes are offered on a modular basis to allow students to focus on studying one course at a time. Each module lasts about five weeks. This structure offers tremendous benefits to students, who may have intensive work commitments in a particular period, and can thus choose not to enrol in that module.
