Course content

The HKUST MSGO program aims to provide a distinctive postgraduate education to qualified students who have already completed a recognized bachelor degree and are interested in managing business operations on a global scale.

The program is developed to address the unique requirements of global operations. It draws on the latest research and is benchmarked to ensure that prospective graduates acquire both the knowledge and skills to manage global operations and work effectively in culturally diverse and competitive marketplaces. It introduces students to operations management practices and technologies that have been proved to be critical in the success and transformation of leading companies, and it prepares students in the qualitative aspects of working in cross-cultural settings.

Our expectation is that graduates of the program will disseminate their learning and understanding of global operations and help improve the competitiveness of the multinational companies.

Program Design
The HKUST MSGO program is a one-year full-time program that allows students to gain both the knowledge and skills to manage global operations and work effectively in culturally diverse and competitive marketplaces.

The program commences in September and starts with general core courses as foundation training in business management.

Students may be able to work for a summer internship to gain practical experience in planning and executing a real business project and to apply what they have learned in class prior to their career.

Students are required to complete a total of 30 credits of coursework of general core, required and elective courses. Students are eligible to take up to 34 credits at no extra costs. Subject to the approval of the MSGO Academic Director, students may apply for credit transfer of no more than three (3) courses (6 credits) in the program.
