FINANCING YOUR MBA
Starting an MBA program is an important commitment, so good financial planning is essential. Non-Hong Kong residents must apply for student visas, which requires proof of sufficient financial resources to support your studies.
The program fee for the Part-time MBA (Bi-Weekly Mode) program is HK$513,000 for Intake 2023. This covers tuition, textbooks and course materials for core courses (excluding course materials for flexible cores and electives), as well as certain self-enrichment activities.
Accommodation in Hong Kong and cross-border transportation for bi-weekly modes are also covered by the program fee.
Successful applicants are required to pay a non-refundable deposit of HK$50,000 (approximately US$6,400) when they accept the offer of admission, which will be deducted from their outstanding program fee. The remainder of the program fee may be paid in two installments.
Part-time MBA (Bi-Weekly Mode) applicants who work and live in Hong Kong and do not require accommodation or transportation to classes in Hong Kong may apply for a local student allowance of HK$48,000, which will be deducted from their tuition fee.
To apply for this allowance, applicants must provide Hong Kong identity card information and proof of residence. Once the allowance has been granted, no accommodation or transportation will be arranged by the school.
