Candidates are assessed through overall performances and therefore there is no hard or fast minimum score. That said, the respective average GMAT score for typical current students is 550 (part-time). These scores are for reference purposes only and do not represent any official requirement.
CUHK views each prospective student as a whole person and does all it can to help candidates achieve their career and life goals. In general terms, we think a well-rounded person should be presentable, clear about his/her future objectives, able to demonstrate strong analytical thinking, confident and possess the academic competence needed to deal with the MBA academic life.
Candidates are advised to submit applications while still preparing necessary documents. Those who have not yet taken GMAT should indicate their scheduled test date on their application form and they are advised to sit the exam within a month of making their application.
If you have a valid work visa that covers the program period you will not need another visa to study in the part-time MBA Program.
Yes. You must apply to the Immigration Department for a student visa. We will provide visa information and assist you in visa application after you are admitted to the Program.
Please refer to the student visa application procedure section of the website for the Hong Kong Government’s Immigration Department. Our admissions office will provide you with full assistance when you apply for a student visa once you are accepted for the program.
Application is open to part-time students who have completed their first year of study for a CUHK MBA. The details will be announced to all students before application open.
Only full-time post-qualification work experience to August 1 of the intake year is counted.
You may be granted exemption from core courses if you have completed equivalent studies and attained a satisfactory academic performance for postgraduate work undertaken within the last five years. Supporting documents such as academic transcripts and course content must be provided for CUHK staff’s assessment at time of applying for an exemption. Applications for course exemption will only be handled once your admission to CUHK has been confirmed. Upon exemption from core courses, students will be required to replace the exempted courses with electives of equal units.
Applications for places on exchange programs usually open to both full- and part-time students each December. Selection criteria are based on applicants’ academic performance during their first term together with other activities and contributions to their CUHK MBA program. While you will not need to pay tuition fees to any exchange school where you are accepted, you will be responsible for all travelling and living expenses while overseas.
Our part-time program is a 24-month curriculum and is offered in the form of both evening and weekend modes.
