Chang, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics of The University of Hong Kong, said: “The sixth consecutive championship in Asia for HKU MBA undoubtedly proves that our Programme is tailor-made to offer the best business education to successful leaders who aspire to achieve professional advancement, career switch and individual enrichment. When the global economic growth is uncertain, HKU MBA students are good at operating in a region as diverse as it is vast, a region of many peoples and cultures, where emerging economies in Asia contend with the new global growth trends and modern technologies to shape market institutions. We expect from our students a strong commitment to personal and professional development, high ethical standards, innovation and exploration as well as to serving the community and the public.”

Professor Bennett Yim, Associate Dean (Postgraduate) of the Faculty of Business and Economics, said, “HKU MBA graduates are well-trained to face favourable situations with positivity but even more so for adversities. We do our best to nurture our students with the cutting-edge knowledge of the ever-changing business markets, exposure and soft skills enhancement essential for their professional and personal development. We are positive that our MBA students and alumni will apply the skills and knowledge acquired at HKU to practices and bring positive influence to the business world.”

Dr. Christine Chan, Assistant Dean (MBA), added, “Our effort to foster strategic cooperation with the business community will be continued so that latest market intelligence is brought in to strengthen the position of HKU MBA as well as to make the Programme more competitive.    Developing business contacts and personal networks is an integral part of the MBA education. Our students, graduands and alumni will be ceaselessly introduced to all these, and be fully supported to strive for career advancement that suits their goals and interests.”

Mr. Sachin Tipnis, Executive Director of HKU MBA Programme, continued, “We highly value interaction among our Programme team, alumni and students which makes HKU MBA more conducive to knowledge and experience exchange. Besides the alumni-students buddy programme that connects students with seasoned graduates and the regional alumni chapters to foster their networks, we also arrange inter-programme networking and sharing with students from our EMBA and MBA (International). All the diversified value-added components of the Programme will further our students’ advancement beyond intellectual growth and secure them with brighter prospects.”

With strong demands from the globe, the HKU MBA Programme continues to grow in scale, providing week-day and week-end modules, market-oriented and/or China- and Asia-focused electives. Our students come from different parts of the world which makes HKU MBA multinational and international. HKU also enhances career development services covering career counselling and coaching as well as job placement which are individually made to fit the career goals, aspirations and directions of different students.

The Economist MBA Ranking is based on independent surveys on the following factors considered to be essential to their education by MBA students around the globe:

• Open new career opportunities and/or further current career
• Personal development and educational experience
• Increase salary
• Potential to network
