Meet with Global Talents

Our world-acclaimed MBA program attracts the brightest minds from a wide range of industries and functions. Furthermore, around 95% of our students are non-local, representing 15-20 nationalities from different parts of Asia, Europe, North America and other regions. You will not find another global MBA program in Asia offering such extensive international exposure and connections.
