To fit into part-time students’ busy lives, we provide courses in two flexible formats to maximize your learning and balance between study, work and family.
Students meet on CUHK’s main campus from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every Saturday (or Sunday) for two classes. One class is conducted from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and the other from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Elective courses may be offered on weekday evenings at the Town Centre in Central or weekends on CUHK’s main campus.
Selected courses in Term 1 and 3 could be completed in 3 to 5 days during intensive week.
For Flex MBA courses, part of the regular scheduled in-class time is presented online while preserving in-class teacher-to-student and student-to-student interactions as a significant and necessary course component.
Students are required to complete weekly pre-recorded lectures delivered by course teacher as well as other interactive online activities as instructed, and attend intensive classes conducted by course teacher on campus every few weeks.
