Why HKU MBA?
Regional Perspective (Strong China Factor)
HKU's International MBA Degree Programme is carefully designed to give you a first-class education, real-world experience, a deep understanding of international business and a valuable appreciation of cultural sensitivities. In particular, our Asia-Pacific focus will give you a unique advantage to build your career in the region, or indeed anywhere in the world given that Asia is at the centre for any business venture around the world.
Within the Asia focus there is a strong element of China business. This makes our MBA highly relevant to the region's dynamic and evolving business environment. China focus is achieved through pertinent and customised teaching materials, local business knowledge of our faculty members, regular company visits, business field trips to China and Chinese language training, and so on.
