Established in 1991, the HKUST Business School is recognized as one of the youngest and most respected in Asia. We are the first business school in the region to be awarded accreditation by both the US-based Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) and European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). Our programs are consistently ranked among the very best in the world by international media and our faculty is considered to be among the most qualified.
