Established in 1991, the HKUST Business School is recognized as one of the youngest and most respected in Asia. We are the first business school in the region to be awarded accreditation by both the US-based Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) and European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). Our programs are consistently ranked among the very best in the world by international media and our faculty is considered to be among the most qualified.
To many, we are known as a research school. This is in line with our founding mandate. Well within the two decades since our establishment, we have been consistently ranked in the world’s top 30 for our research achievements, and established ourselves in the top 10 in 2010. (see here)
We are also innovators in teaching as exemplified by our being the first Asian school to offer a joint degree program in partnership with another top international business school. That program, the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA, is hailed by The Economist as the “most successful EMBA partnership”. In addition, another partnership program with the NYU Stern School has been launched at the master's degree level and it has a specialization in Finance.
As ever, we remain focused on creating a unique learning experience for our students, whatever level they are studying at. To this end we have developed the largest international student exchange network with over 100 top business schools worldwide. There are also a host of other enrichment programs for students’ personal and skills development.
