Exchange Program

The exchange program offers students a wonderful opportunity to gain international exposure and maximize their experience at HKUST. While priority of seat allocation is given to full-time MBA students, part-time students are still eligible to go on exchange due to our extensive partnerships with other schools. You can study for a full semester at one of our 60 partner schools located in nearly 20 countries.

The exchange program promotes cultural and international exposure therefore some of our partner universities do not allow students to return to their home country for the exchange program.

I enjoyed every minute at both HKUST and Berkeley Haas. I chose UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business from a long list of schools because of its Defining Leadership Principles which create an extremely inclusive and innovative culture. My time at Haas allowed me to reflect on my values and motivations, practice the skills needed to drive change, and build a network that includes exceptionally talented professionals. Most importantly, the experience at Haas gave me a new perspective on personal and professional growth. Instead of asking "What job can I get?", I now ask "What impact can I make?" Instead of checking boxes, I want to create new boxes, and endeavor to make the world a better place.
