  • Bachelor’s degree;
  • Satisfactory GMAT score* or GRE; and
  • Minimum of 3 years’ full-time work experience after graduating from your first degree; and
  • Good TOEFL/IELTS academic results if English was not the language of instruction of your undergraduate/ postgraduate courses

* Applicants with more than 7 years' full-time work experience are eligible to apply for a GMAT waiver, which is subject to approval.


School codes for admissions tests:

  • 1. HKUST code number: 7357 for GMAT (MBA for Professionals program code: PRW-WT-53)
  • 2. HKUST code number for TOEFL: 0170-01

We recognize the importance of recruiting a diverse group of students who will both benefit from and contribute to the HKUST MBA programs. Rather than select candidates based on a checklist of eligible criteria, we consider how they will interact with each other as a group, how the program matches their individual needs and objectives, and how they envision contributing to their class and the program.
