Program Design

The HKUST MSBA program aims to meet strong demand for business analytics professionals. It provides students with solid knowledge of business analytics by bringing together a wide range of knowledge in applied statistics, modeling, optimization, and information management.

Students are prepared through a combination of:

  1. Intensive academic curriculum taught by our world-class faculty

  2. Carefully crafted mandatory workshops taught by academic faculty and expert industry professionals

  3. Strategic management consulting track (optional)

  4. Curriculum adjustments: required courses changed, course re-scheduling

Our workshops involve innovative elements found in forward-thinking corporate training programs.

This is to ensure that full-time students have the necessary capabilities to confidently engage in internships in the Spring, while part-time students, who are interested in up-skilling, will have acquired sufficient skills in that same time period.
