Short Description

The HKUST Business and Management (B&M) program is our school-based admission route and one of the most well-regarded and comprehensive business programs in Hong Kong. The program is designed to provide students with a broad foundation of knowledge and great flexibility in learning.

In the first three terms, students will be exposed to a wide variety of business and other foundational subjects so that they can fully explore their interests before committing to one or more specialized area(s) of study during major selection exercises held twice a year. 

The School offers two quantitative-oriented Bachelor of Science (BSc) programs and nine Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programs.  About half of the planned major seats are reserved for B&M program students to enroll in the major via the major selection exercises.

Planned major seats of individual program are listed below for reference

Over 80% of business students were admitted into their first- or second-choice major through major selection exercises. For the 2017 4Y graduating class, 82.5% of business students completed their degree with additional major(s) or minor(s).

Our flexible curriculum structure allows students to customize their program combination based on their personal interests, e.g., BBA (Finance and Information Systems), BBA (Marketing and Operations Management), BBA (Management and Professional Accounting), etc. Students may also pursue one or more of the 22 minors offered by the School of Science, School of Engineering, or School of Humanities and Social Science, e.g. Design, Entrepreneurship, China Studies, Mathematics, Social Science, etc. 

The School currently has 134 world-renowned exchange partners, providing 400 exchange-out places per year for business students. It has also set up a career development team to expand internship and graduate job opportunities and provide professional workshops for students. The graduate survey showed that 93% of business students in the class of 2017 had completed at least one internship during their study.

Remarks:

The Year 1 curricula of all Business programs are identical. Students interested in any business discipline may consider including both their preferred business program(s) and JS5300 Business & Management in the program choices.
