Applying to the Hong Kong MBA

Admission to the Hong Kong MBA program is simple. First, take a moment to review our admission criteria. Information about getting started and how to apply is also explained below.

Admissions criteria

Academic record

First, a bachelor's degree is required. That aside, your academic record should clearly show us your ability to complete a rigorous academic program. We'll consider the difficulty of your major and rigor of your previous institution, plus your GPA. We don't automatically require a GMAT score, but we may request one if the admissions committee feels that your academic record doesn't clearly indicate your ability to complete the program.

Work experience

Understanding life in the business world is necessary to get the most out of the Hong Kong MBA. We expect at least four years of full-time work experience, and we look for professional experiences that show your ability to succeed in the business environment.


Your leadership potential should be clear through community involvement and achievements in the workplace.


Because our courses are taught in English, we'll need to see evidence of your English ability in order to grant admission. You'll also participate in an admission interview with a member of our team.

Getting started

Starting the Hong Kong MBA Program is easy and as flexible as it gets.

New courses, or modules, begin monthly. You can start the Hong Kong MBA Program in almost any module. That means there are about 12 possible starting points throughout the year. You choose the one that works for you.
