The Birmingham MBA in Hong Kong

hong-kong

This programme has been running in Hong Kong since 2002 and is delivered as part of a collaborative provision arrangement with the Open University, Hong Kong (OUHK).

It uses fundamentally the same syllabus as the corresponding Birmingham programme with the same team of University of Birmingham academic staff but there is some customisation and we use more Asian cases and institutional material than in the home programme.

The Birmingham MBA in Hong Kong programme is totally taught abroad and delivered in English.
