When the HKUST Business School first established in 1991, we formed a strategic alliance with UCLA Anderson School of Management to provide a strong base for curriculum development and faculty recruitment.
From this solid foundation, the School has earned a reputation as a world-class institution within just one decade. Our achievements include:
- First business school in Asia to be awarded dual accreditation by AACSB International in the US and EQUIS in Europe
- World No. 16 MBA program, 2009, Financial Times
- World No. 30 and No. 1 MBA Program in Asia, 2009, The Economist
- Kellogg-HKUST EMBA No. 1 in the world, 2009, Financial Times
- Executive Education Programs No. 1 in Asia-Pacific, 2003-07, Financial Times
World Class Faculty Team
We are one of the very few business schools in the world where all faculty members hold doctorate degrees. These 120 scholars from over 15 countries, many experts in their fields, help to build our young and dynamic university into an academic powerhouse.
Throughout the years, the School and its faculty members have garnered accolades for their intellectual contributions both locally and internationally. Our research in Accounting, Finance, and Economics has been ranked top in Asia Pacific. Overall, the School ranked No. 17 in research by Financial Times in 2009.
HKUST’s International Vision
What distinguishes HKUST from other business schools in the region is our level of internationalization. Our MBA program broadens participants' cultural awareness through the wide-reaching exchange program and business case competitions.
The HKUST MBA community reflects a global village in miniature. The majority of our full-time students come from outside Hong Kong, representing more than 25 nationalities. Our faculty members originated from over 15 countries. You will also interact with exchange-in students from our 55 partner schools in four continents. All these ensure a truly international experience.
Curriculum with Regional Insights
The design of our curriculum takes into account not only the knowledge domain necessary for today's managers in a global economy, but also the latest business know-how in the Asian context. Our courses maximize the use of case-based interactive learning and use cases within the Asia and Greater China context when applicable. In addition, we offer effectives along 5 career tracks, including the General Management in China and an optional Mandarin training.
