The School vision “To develop global business leaders for the Asian Century.” reflects China’s emergence in the world economy which has created a need to educate a new generation of business leaders – ones who possess knowledge of Asian markets, China in particular, and yet have a global mindset.

With its unique historic ties in China since its establishment in 1963, and world class business programs and research, the School is in an unparalleled position to develop the leaders for tomorrow – to equip them for the “Asian Century”. CUHK Business School is the pioneer of business education with the first BBA, MBA and EMBA in Hong Kong and the region and has nurtured more than 35,000 alumni to form a major pillar of the local and regional business community.

CUHK Business School has also pioneered the internationalization of its undergraduate curriculum through initiatives such as the BBA in Global Business Studies (GLOBE), International Business and Chinese Enterprise (IBCE) and the Asian Business Studies (ABS) modules.

In GLOBE, 54 students each year from CUHK Business School, Copenhagen Business School and the Kenan-Flagler Business School in North Carolina study together as one cohort in three locations across the world. In IBCE, upon completion of the 4-year undergraduate degree, students will then continue the 1-year Master of International Business program at the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina.

Students who are interested in pursuing careers in Asia may also select the ABS modules. After the rst year of study, students selected into the program complete one term of study each at two renowned institutions, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China and Waseda University in Japan respectively.
