About our Masters Programmes
  • Mode and Duration of Study

    The HKU Business School Masters Programmes extends over a minimum of one academic year and a maximum of two academic years for full-time study. Most students tend to finish the programme in  one academic year.

    Courses are offered on a  modular basis  to allow students to focus on one area of study at a time. There are 6 modules in one academic year and each module is six to eight weeks long, including the examination week.

    Students usually take 2-3 courses per module and there are usually two lectures for each course weekly.

  • Medium and Course Assessment

    The HKU Business School Masters Programmes will be taught in English.

    Assessment of each course may include assignments, mid-term examinations, project papers and other course work, as well as a final examination, which is normally held at the end of each course unless otherwise specified.

  • Graduation Requirements

    Please refer to individual programme for specific requirements on number of courses/credits required.

    Students who have failed a course are required to retake the course, or to take another course as a substitute if the failed course is an elective. Students who need to repeat a core course outside the normative study period or take another elective course as a substitute are required to pay a repeating fee or an additional course fee.

    In order to graduate, the total number of failures cannot exceed two in the entire period of study and a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above must be achieved.
