Our original Hong Kong-based EMBA program, launched in 1993, was the first Executive MBA program in Hong Kong and remains a truly made-in-Hong Kong product. CUHK EMBA was recognized by the Financial Times as among the Top 25 Executive MBA programs in the world for 14 Consecutive Years.

To cater for the ever-growing demand for quality business education at senior managerial level in Chinese language, the CUHK Business School also offers the EMBA (Chinese) for business executives based in mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Objective

The EMBA (Executive MBA) Program at The Chinese University of Hong Kong is the first program of its kind offered in Hong Kong. The program, initially offered by the CUHK Business School in 1993, is a two-year part-time program that is unique in its approach to graduate business education in Hong Kong.

The CUHK Business School was again accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) last year.

The EMBA program was established with the objective of developing in our participants the essential skills and knowledge for modern management, and preparing them for general management responsibilities at the senior executive level. In light of rising corporate and managerial complexity and new challenges facing senior executives, the program aims to improve participants’ analytical and decision-making capabilities, and enhance the competitive advantages of their enterprises. Relevance will be emphasized in the context of Hong Kong’s strategic location within China and the Asia-Pacific region.

Program of Study

The EMBA program of study reflects our commitment to relevance and excellence by focusing on strategy and the integrative nature of the business environment in which senior executives operate. Each year approximately 50 persons are admitted to the program. Participants are expected to retain their full-time job responsibilities throughout their EMBA study.

Two years of study are required - each consisting of four terms. Two one-week, in-residence study programs are respectively scheduled at the beginning and end of the program. The first-year program provides a solid foundation in all major business functions and an introduction to the various changing business environments. The second-year program uses a functionally integrative approach that emphasizes broad-based strategies and policies.

Method of Instruction

The EMBA method of instruction consistently takes advantage of the strong and diverse management experience of the participants. The methods of instruction vary, but may include formal lectures, seminars, case analyses, simulation games, and individual and group projects related to current management issues in the participants’ host organizations.

To enhance the educational value of the program, participants are expected to contribute to small and large group activities within a highly interactive learning environment. Study groups are formed with participants from varied backgrounds and experience levels. Here, effective communication and teamwork skills are practised with the aim of achieving our EMBA objective.

All core courses are conducted in English while a few electives are conducted in Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin).

The master of science in applied economics (MScAEcon) program provides an in-depth understanding of the economic mechanism of our economy. This enables graduates to make strategic decisions for business enterprises, public organisations as well as individuals in view of the drastic changes in the world economy.

The program is designed to maintain a balance between advanced theoretical coverage and applied economic analyses of the real world. The objective of the economics program is to train competent analysts in government, NGOs, financial institutions, and other major corporations.

Core Courses

ECON 7100 Research Workshops and Seminars
This course aims at preparing students for carrying out academic and applied research work. Students will learn how to identify economic issues, develop testable hypotheses,apply appropriate analytical tools, and write research proposal. This course provides students a thorough understanding of the entire process of doing academic research and applied research in Economics.

ECON 7150 Advanced Microeconomics
This course emphasises rigorous treatments of the optimisation behaviour of individual agents. Modern treatments of uncertainty, strategic decision making, as well as applying the dual relationship between economic functions in the price space and the quantity space to comparative statics analyses, provides fundamental tools to other applied studies.

ECON 7160 Advanced Macroeconomics
This course introduces students to important topics in macroeconomics, including growth theory, business cycles, New Keynesian theories, and recent development in macroeconomics. With the building of knowledge on both qualitative and quantitative macroeconomics, students are equipped with tools needed for understanding and conducting macroeconomic policy analysis.

ECON 7170 Applied Econometric Analysis
This course aims at covering graduate level applied econometric techniques to quantitatively solve empirical economic problems. In addition to the classical linear regression model, hypothesis testing and problems of non-spherical disturbances, more advanced topics are also considered. Students will be trained to formulate econometric models and to identify the causal relationships between economic variables using computer software. The emphasis is upon the interpretation and testing of results from different econometric estimation procedures. Students will also be provided with practical experience of applying these techniques to quantitatively solve empirical problems that arise in economics and business.

ECON 7310 Economic Institutions in China
This course studies key economic institutions of China that have emerged in the course of transition from a planned to a market economy. These institutions are not necessarily the first-best choices from the perspective of conventional theories of market economy, but they might overcome some of typical institutional weaknesses of transitional economies. Drawing on major contributions in recent economics literature, the costs and benefits of adopting these institutions by China will be analysed.

A master's programme to prepare students for business in China and on the world stage.

A Career Starter

Launched in 2012, the Master of Science in Business Management (MScBM) Programme provides a general focus on junior business executives and fresh graduates from all disciplines wishing to jumpstart their business careers. With a broad and comprehensive scope ranging from accounting & finance, business law, marketing to management, and an emphasis on dimensions of international business, students shall refine their business knowledge, gain practical experience, hone personal skills, and be ready to kickstart their career.

China Focus, Global Perspective

The MScBM programme curriculum incorporates a wealth of China elements to equip students with general knowledge and skills necessary for success on the Chinese Mainland. Our China-related elective courses, to name but a few, include Legal Aspects of China Trade and Investment, International Trade and Finance in China, and Chinese Wisdom and Management. To further accentuate this China focus, students of the programme are uniquely benefited from a connection with the alumni of the MBA and MScBM programme – many of whom are senior business executives in China –through a series of learning and social activities. This connection provides valuable learning and interactive experience.

Hong Kong Baptist University also offers opportunities for international exchange via its partnership with overseas and Mainland partner institutions, with possibility of credit transfer to the MScBM programme. Moreover, as part of the programme, MScBM students can choose to participate in a one-week business field study in a city in Greater China or overseas, during which they will evaluate a designated company or industry and draw up recommendations to improve business performance. It presents a stimulating environment where students may apply their knowledge of China/international business practices to tackle challenges in a real setting.

All-rounder development

The global business world is seeing a paradigm shift towards what is termed “soft skills” – where such attributes as attitude, intuition, ideas, creativity, energy, and engagement are increasingly valued. The MScBM programme aims at cultivating these aspects of our students through a combination of seminars, workshops, corporate visits and career development training under the umbrella "Executive Development Series” specifically designed to provide a “live learning” experience. These activities offer students practical experience from business leaders, chances to obtain knowledge and skills in leadership, presentation and professional image building, and grasp of latest job market developments.

International recognition and support for International Students

The programme has been triple accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) for full international recognition. We are among the rare 1% of the world’s business schools to obtain this triple accreditation.

International applicants of the programme are also supported by an array of scholarships including the Diversity Contribution Scholarship and other awards for distinguished achievements. International students are given support by the dedicated International Office of Hong Kong Baptist University to help them adapt to life on campus and in the vibrant city of Hong Kong.
