My heartfelt gratitude goes to our faculty, staff, alumni and students for their tremendous support to the School. As Hong Kong’s first EMBA programme, the ranking results have demonstrated our commitment in nurturing outstanding leaders who have contributed to the region’s socio-economic development.”

“We are very pleased to see the positive ranking results and uptick in many key areas and are honoured to be the world’s top-ranked programme in career progress, which is a testament to our ability of nurturing our students to become top-notch management talents in the ever-changing world and create great value to the business community and society post-EMBA,” said Prof. Howard Lam, Director of EMBA Programme and Associate Professor of Practice in Marketing.“

CUHK EMBA nurtures top-notch management talents for keeping up with the fast-evolving economy in Hong Kong, the mainland, and beyond.
