Strategically located at the heart of Asia's economic centre, our students not only enjoy access to a unique fusion of East-meets-West, but also excellent proximity to China and the opportunity to experience the vitality of one of the world's most important economies.
Our full suite of degree programmes, including undergraduate, MBA, EMBA, MSc, PhD as well as a wide range of executive education programmes, means that the HKUST Business School is always at the forefront of educational development and business thinking.

These include the acclaimed Kellogg-HKUST Executive MBA programme in collaboration with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in the US, and Master of Science in Global Finance with New York University's Stern School of Business.
