Full-time MBA

CUHK's full-time MBA curriculum includes both core and elective courses. Students' first academic year is divided into three regular terms plus an optional summer term. To graduate, students must successfully complete 54 units. Given the above unit requirement, students can complete their MBA studies in as few as 12 months. Alternatively, they may participate in a wide range of summer internships or world-wide exchange programs and extend their studies to 16 months. Students can also apply to study for a Dual Degree Program or collaboration study scheme with our four renowned partnering schools in the world. Classes are held on a full-time basis while electives in concentrations may be offered on weekday evenings or weekends.
