- Fundamental Phase at HEC, Customized Phase at CUHK

Students beginning their studies at HEC will follow the Fundamental Phase (two terms), and may be part of either the September or January intake for the Full-Time MBA.

The Customized phase at CUHK then begins in September, and is made up of 3 semesters: September-December, December-March, March-June. In the first two semesters, students will study their chosen electives (9 credits per term), and then in the final semester they will have a choice of either studying more electives or a Business Practicum (9 credits). Again students have the choice of pursuing one or two Concentration options (15 credits) at CUHK MBA during the Customized phase:

  • Chinese Business
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Entrepreneurship
