The Chinese University of Hong Kong MBA Programmes 2010

Welcome to CUMBA

The recent financial turmoil and the rise of emerging economies have revealed two key global trends: the growing importance of Asia, China in particular, in the global arena; and the instrumental role of corporate social responsibility (CSR) for sustainable development. Steeped in the unprecedented economic development of China and Asia while engaging in teaching and research partnership globally, the Faculty of Business Administration at the Chinese University of Hong Kong provides an excellent platform to equip global business leaders for the challenges ahead. Being the first MBA program in Hong Kong and one of the first two business schools outside North America to be accredited by AACSB International, our MBA programme has a strong global focus. Over the years, we have successfully placed students in multinational corporations such as Credit Suisse, IBM, LVMH and Mizuho Corporate Bank. More than 80% of our fulltime students come from outside of Hong Kong. Our dual degree offerings with University of Texas, Austin and HEC, Paris and extensive exchange opportunities with top business schools around the world further enhance students international experience. With our strong focus on China and deep roots in the region, the MBA curriculum offers unique opportunities to gain China business insight through specialized courses in China marketing and finance, as well as study trips to the mainland. Students will also benefit from our extensive network of more than 17,000 alumni around the world. Our partnership programmes with top mainland universities such as Tsinghua University, which cover all the four key regions in China (Beijing, Shanghai, Xian and Guangzhou/Shenzhen), also provide our students with unparalleled opportunities to network with top executives in China.

The volatile situation of the world economy since last year reinforces our belief that socially responsible business leaders are the key to sustainable development and business success. Every year, our MBA students will run a student-led Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Conference. The event aims to advocate the importance of CSR, tackle major obstacles and share good CSR practices among corporations, NGOs and the academic community. Through this major event and other CSR-driven initiatives, we devoted to develop among our students a good sense of corporate citizenship, which in turn, integrated into the corporations that they serve. Business is all about leadership, innovation and achievements. We demonstrate the essence of these through continuous advancement of the MBA programmes. I sincerely invite you to join us and enjoy this extraordinary and rewarding venture.

Internship Highlights
In 2009, we are pleased to see our full-time students seizing outstanding internship opportunities in different parts of the world.

Evonne Qin
The Walt Disney Company (Shanghai) Limited in Shanghai, China "One month has quickly passed since I became an MBA intern working in the Consumer Product Department (DCP) of The Walt Disney Company (Shanghai) Limited. Disney is a very warm big family, with 300 employees working together at Shanghai office. I enjoy life here every day. I am working for both the Finance Director and the Marketing Director, to help Disney DCP formulate more precise and viable marketing strategies by conducting a wide range of economic and industry analysis. Disney gives me good opportunity to learn how licensing business works, which is quite different from most consumer goods companies operating here in China."

Anand Gopalakrishnan
Deutsche Post World Net (DPWN) in Bonn, Germany "I am pleased to share about my internship now in Bonn. It is a small city and I stay at a hotel about 40 mins walk from the Post Tower. This walking time which I usually do in the morning and evening does help me in getting some exercise I really needed! There are around 20 interns here in Bonn with mixed nationalities. They include Uruguayan, Peruvian, French-Spanish, Indians, Chinese, Russian and Americans. Life here is good and I am enjoying it! The MBA networking event was good and interactive too. On the first day I went to the office, I was in a department meeting for the quarterly Freight Sales briefing. Though it was difficult to digest all the things on that day, I was able to gather some useful pointers and information about what was happening in Freight Sales! I was also introduced to all the people in different departments including my mentor and project manager."

CUMBA China Story


The Chinese University of Hong Kong MBA Programmes 2010

Expertise in China
In 1990, a new chapter began for CUMBA as we welcomed our first mainland student. Since then we have developed profound relationships and connections in China. Many of our faculty members conduct extensive research into China business and receive invitations to teach in many leading institutions there. Today, we are the leader in China business research and we have over 1000 MBA alumni working and living in China. Business leaders from various local and multinational organizations with a presence in China regularly visit The Chinese University of Hong Kong to share their insights on this huge market with our students.

In summary, CUMBA has:

Strong alumni network in China Global leadership in China business research Extensive relationship with tertiary education institutions in China

Forum on "Globalization - The Challenges & Opportunities of Corporate Governance in China" held by the Faculty of Business Administration, The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008.

Prof. Liu Mingkang, Chairman, China Banking Regulatory Commission


Partnership with Tsinghua University

Partnership with Shanghai National Accounting Institute

Launched EMPAcc and MAcc with Shanghai National Accounting Institute

The Chinese University of Hong Kong is the first university in Hong Kong to offer joint MBA programmes with a Mainland institution. We started our MBA in Finance with Tsinghua University in Beijing back in 2000. Since then, this flagship programme has nurtured over 600 business executives in the Mainland with many of whom holding key positions in the financial service industry in China.

In 2004, the Faculty of Business Administration of CUHK forged a strategic partnership with the Shanghai National Accounting Institute to provide world class accounting and finance education in the greater China region and provide opportunities for local and Mainland accounting and finance professionals to learn and grow. Upon completion of the programme, participants are awarded both a Master of Accountancy degree by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a CFO Professional Certificate by the Shanghai National Accounting Institute. As the only programme outside of Mainland China offering the CFO professional certificate, our graduates enjoy a competitive advantage no other local institute can deliver.

Common methods include lectures, discussions, case analyses, seminars, gaming models, and directed research.
