The full-time HKU MBA is an intensive 1 year programme with three tracks: the London track, New York track and Hong Kong/China track.

The University of Hong Kong and its prestigious MBA programme is a major participant in and contributor to the business culture of Hong Kong and mainland China. Today’s MBA students demand an approach that sets them up for success both regionally and internationally and provides them with a learning experience that bestows upon them a first-class education, real-world experience, and a deep understanding of international business and the cultural differences and nuances therein. HKU’s full-time MBA programme is specifically designed to produce these outcomes. Our Asia-Pacific and China focus gives our students a unique advantage in building their careers in the region and beyond.
The HKU MBA is offered in both weekday and weekend modes for Part-time programme. 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.

Zai Chen
Class of 2019
Considering my current position, I think the most practical gains made during my MBA journey are English skills, communication skills and understanding about people from diverse culture backgrounds.
Royce Chow
Class of 2019
Everyone has different reasons for pursuing an MBA. My journey started when I wanted to become more business driven and change my profile appearance to be more well-rounded. The knowledge you gain through an MBA is invaluable and I was able to take everything I learnt in the classroom and apply it to a real work environment.
Cristian Costoiu
Class of 2017
The reason I chose HKU over other universities in Hong Kong was because it is globally recognised, in a convenient location, had the option of the weekday mode and the curriculum was very good.
Nikki Lim
Class of 2020
Hong Kong has always been one of my favorite places to visit as this is an ever-changing city that is dynamic in its culture and people. Hong Kong is a mash-up of modern skyscrapers and uninterrupted vistas which can have an appeal for anyone that passes through the city.
Giuliana Auinger

The HKU MBA experience was a fantastic one and it helped me both professionally and personally.
Aveta Zhou

For me, HKU MBA is like a rich buffet. Everyone's preferences and gains are different, but we will all enjoy the feast, and continue to enjoy the long-term benefits brought to us
