Culture and heritage is what sets Hong Kong apart from the rest of Asia – indeed the world.  Hong Kong is a unique fusion of Eastern and Western cultures where the old and the new live side by side.

As an international city with cultural diversity and a gateway to mainland China, Hong Kong is one of the ideal places for business schools to organize international programs. We are the host institution for numerous Asian study tours of worldwide EMBA/MBA programs.

The territory is handling one-fifth of the country’s foreign trade and the largest offshore pool of Renminbi liquidity.

4. First-class Trading Hub
Hong Kong is acclaimed across the world with the world’s busiest cargo airport, a leading port and state-of-the-art business infrastructure.

Natalie Singh

Participant of International Immersion Program, 
Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, India (IIMA)


"I had taken a project on doing comparative analysis of Infrastructure development between India and China, and how Infrastructure development is linked to poverty alleviation and Equity. I got valuable insight into my project work from the faculty and its world class resourceful library.

The biggest insight I learnt during the stay at CUHK Business School was an insight into Chinese business culture and what psyche drives Chinese government to invest into public projects. The APIB program was very well designed to maintain the continuity with course schedule of IIM Ahmedabad. The company visits gave insights into the major companies in the far east market.

The program helped me in building my social and business network in Hong Kong, which proved quite useful in establishing my business in Hong Kong and China. I’d definitely recommend the CUHK Business School to anyone looking forward to advance his career especially in the Far East region."
