HKUST MBA Ranks Among Top 15 Globally for 8th Consecutive Year


The MBA Program, offered by the School of Business and Management at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST Business School), has been ranked No.15 in the world by the Financial Times. This is the eighth consecutive year that the Program has been ranked in the top 15 globally.

The HKUST MBA Program has constantly achieved positive results across multiple dimensions in the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking. This is a testament to the concerted efforts made by the Program throughout the years to understand the kind of business talent the market needs and to deliver lasting value to graduates.

“With a firm commitment to continued improvement and innovation, our programs revise their curriculum from time to time in response to the evolving needs of the business world and students,” said Prof Tam Kar Yan, Dean of HKUST Business School. “We are pleased that the top quality standard we uphold not only delivers proven value to graduates, but manifests our leading position in delivering distinctive business education in the region.”

According to the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking 2017, the average salary of our graduates, three years after attaining their MBA qualification, reached USD149,538 per annum (about HKD1.16 million), an increase of 103% compared with their average pre-MBA salary. The survey, which also calculated the value for money among the top 100 global MBA programs based on salaries of alumni as well as the length and fees of the courses, rated the HKUST MBA Program No.10 in the world or the best in Asia.

“Students admitted to the HKUST MBA Program also benefit from the interaction with their highly international mix of classmates on campus and peers around the world,” said Mr Sean Ferguson, Associate Dean (Master’s Programs) and Director of MBA Programs. “They can join our global exchange network that we partner with 60 top-tier business schools and overseas study trips to gain a truly global experience.”
