have achieved a world ranking of 6th place for its Executive
MBA program is a truly remarkable achievement for an
institution less than 15 years old. Not only does this
demonstrate the strength of the HKUST Business School,
but it reflects the ability of the School to leverage
its resources through collaboration, in this case with
the world class Kellogg School at Northwestern University.
It is also an endorsement of the School's commitment
to programs solidly based on the latest research findings.
The quality of HKUST research in business is cited in
many of the program rankings, and evident in its leading
record of publication in the leading journals. There
is no insurmountable obstacle to achieving a ranking
among the world's top 25 business schools, and HKUST
is committed to this goal.
To fully exploit the global visibility that has been
achieved by the management education and research programs
based in the School, HKUST will develop a premium center
for executive and professional education and training
on its campus. Sited on the apex of the campus site,
with unforgettable views to complement its five star
facilities, this world class facility will become one
of the top centers in the world for high end workshops,
short courses, and executive programs of longer duration.
As China develops into one of the world's economic superpowers,
the HKUST center will be the place to come to see the
transformation first hand and learn about it from the
world's top experts. With this center as a focus, Hong
Kong will be one of the world's leading centers for
business education and research, and the window through
which the world views the economic revolution taking
place on the Mainland.
