International Students Attracted by CUHK MiM’s Innovative Curriculum and Practice-oriented Learning Opportunities
Where in the world should you study your masters? This is no doubt a question every prospective graduate student has asked him or herself —and lately, a lot of them have answered ‘Asia’.
According to data from the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), 67 per cent of graduate management programmes in the Asia Pacific region reported application growth in 2018. This is more than both Canada and Europe, and significantly more than the US, where 57 per cent of programmes reported a decline.
Evidently, the lure of Asia’s expanding economy and innovation centres is pulling in increasing numbers to Asia’s top business schools, including The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School.
CUHK Business School’s new and innovative MSc in Management (MiM) programme welcomed its first cohort this year. CUHK MiM promises early-career business professionals the chance to gain an in-depth, practical understanding of the challenges facing business today from an Asian perspective.
In an interview with BusinessBecause, an UK-based online news portal for business school students and prospects, CUHK MiM’s international students, including Joe Cirkiel from the US, Koe Shern from Malaysia and Bill Tung from Taiwan, shared with the media the advantages of selecting Hong Kong as the destination for an MiM, and what they aspire to gain from this experience for their future career development.
