Tracing its roots back over a century, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) today proudly stands as one of the leading institutions of higher education in Asia. And with it, the HKU Business School has grown to become a widely recognised and respected business school in the region. 

The School strives to nurture first-class business leaders and to foster both academic and applied research to serve the needs of Hong Kong, China and the rest of the world in the fast-changing global economy. We engage leading scholars from all corners of the world who instil students with global knowledge. With the highest proportion of non-local undergraduate students amongst all Faculties at HKU, and two of our undergraduate programmes ranked amongst the University’s Top 5 and Hong Kong’s Top 10 programmes, HKU Business School attracts the best and brightest students from Hong Kong and beyond.

The School’s full-time MBA programme has been ranked Asia’s no. 1 in the World MBA Rankings released by the Economist Intelligence Unit for nine consecutive years from 2010 to 2018. In addition to offering an elite EMBA-Global Asia programme jointly with Columbia Business School and London Business School for globally-focused senior executives and professionals, we also collaborate with top business schools throughout China and across the globe to synergise business and economics education. Our strong and extensive alumni network, with business and community leaders serving at key positions in both public and private realms, furthers our reach and strengthens our influence in different sectors and strata of society.

To be eligible for admission to the Masters Programmes, a candidate must:

  • Hold a recognised bachelor's or equivalent; 

  • Obtain statements from two referees, regarding his/her suitability for the programme; and

  • Obtain a TOEFL/IELTS* score if you are not from an English-medium university.
    Minimum score requirement: TOEFL: 80 | IELTS: 6 (with no subtest below 5.5)

GMAT/GRE scores are not required, but a good GMAT/GRE score will be favourably considered and can be helpful for marginal cases.

In general, applicants are not required to attend an interview during the admissions process.

TOEFL and IELTS score reports are valid for two years only. GMAT score reports are valid for five years. For example, if you submit your application form on October 2, 2020, then only the report of the TOEFL/IELTS test taken after October 1, 2018 is considered valid. Also, please make sure you arrange to get the official test report to us in time as the test authorities may not issue your report when the test result has expired.
