Hong Kong University of Science and Technology - HKUST Business School 
Location: Hong Kong
Year Established: 1991
Student population: 13,500 (3,800 international students)
A young, research-intensive university, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has rapidly risen to international prominence and achieves high rankings in a range of disciplines. It is the only science and technology research university in Hong Kong, and the only one to offer an all-PhD faculty. It is characterised for the high quality of its research and for its postgraduate training, which has been a core mission since its establishment.

HKUST offers 400 renowned faculty members, state-of-the-art learning and research facilities and a beautiful seaside campus with a wide range of athletic and recreational facilities including an Olympic-size outdoor swimming pool. There are numerous student societies and opportunities to get to know Mainland China. The University places an emphasis on developing students’ career competencies to further boost their employability.

Unique characteristics
HKUST has five schools – Science, Engineering, Business and Management, Humanities and Social Science, and the Fok Ying Tung Graduate School in Guangzhou. The Business School – considered one of the best in the world - offers excellent undergraduate tuition, international exposure and experience, and a unique Asian and global perspective.  

One of the most densely populated cities in the world which combines Chinese tradition with Western decadence, Hong Kong is a must-see destination in Asia. As well as the towering skyscrapers, pulsing nightlife and eclectic food and shopping, you can explore the beautiful mountains, parks and islands that make up 70 per cent of Hong Kong. HKUST’s campus is situated on a hillside and waterfront complex overlooking the Clear Water Bay peninsula, less than 30 minutes' drive from Central Hong Kong.
