Global Classroom

Executive MBA students can complete global electives at Kellogg partner schools abroad, where homegrown faculty share rare insights into local business, culture and politics. Scenery and national anthems will vary, but the same philosophy and top-tier education unites the students and faculty in all our programs in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the America.

The world is your classroom

The Kellogg-HKUST Executive MBA program brings leaders together in an intellectual quest that encompasses six continents. The journey is enriching, distinguished by fresh insights and valuable new networks.
