Course Overview

The Asia-Pacific region’s rapid development into an international center for trade, finance and industry has created a need for global management preparation. There is an increasing call for multinational and international companies in the region to update their experienced executives with modern business and management skills in order to cope with the ever-increasing complexity of business activities. A high level business program with an Asia-Pacific focus is of utmost importance and value.

The Kellogg-HKUST Executive Master of Business Administration (KH EMBA) Program is jointly organized by the Kellogg School of Management of the Northwestern University and the School of Business and Management of HKUST. It is tailor-made for senior executives who have attained positions of leadership in their organizations. Participants not only learn from topnotch faculty of both Schools but also from a student body with extremely diverse backgrounds, industries and nationalities. The program encourages executives to think differently, look at their operations in a new way and relentlessly question and challenge. It is designed to help them address complex business and management issues ahead in a global and integrative context.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

The KH EMBA program is an 18-month part-time general management program. It employs instructional methods tailored to the skills and needs of experienced managers. Organized in short “modules”, participants take two courses each month that cut across traditional subject areas to provide tools and techniques for solving complex managerial problems. Emphasis is placed on three specific areas of management skills: behavior in learning organizations, international management, and managing groups of cooperating firms for international competitiveness.

There are a total of eleven modules, and two residential sessions over the program. The class schedule allows participants to continue their careers while they study to acquire a broad range of functional and managerial skills. In addition, the schedule provides students with the opportunity to exercise their skills in workplace situations.

Participants meet twice every month on the HKUST campus and are accommodated in the Conference Lodge. Classes will be held on Friday afternoons, Saturdays and Sundays.

There are two live-in sessions in the program - the first to be held at HKUST in January and the second at Kellogg’s James L. Allen Center in Evanston, Illinois, in August. The initial session is a critical time for the development of class identity and for the formation of study groups. Live-in sessions round out the curriculum by allowing participants to continue classroom and small group discussions, expand their network of business contacts, and get to know their classmates.
