Chicago Booth is an American business school with a global reach. Our Executive MBA Program in Hong Kong provides many opportunities for the exchange of ideas among students, faculty, alumni, and the Asia-Pacific business community. With additional campuses in Chicago and London, the Executive MBA Program offers both regional and international networking and learning experiences.

2. Our campus is a blend of old and new, and has been recognized for its architectural beauty.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex | The University of Chicago Francis and Rose Yuen Campus in Hong Kong is a Grade 3 heritage site, meaning that the government has designated it a building of merit that should be preserved in antiquity. The University of Chicago conducted extensive historical research and heritage interpretation exercises to reconstruct the usage of the site. The campus has won several prestigious architecture awards.

 

3. Our faculty fly 7,782 miles (12,522 km) from Chicago to Hong Kong.

4. Booth research shows that Hong Kongers will ‘run the extra mile’ for uncertain incentives.

Unknown rewards can prove a powerful motivator. Chinese University of Hong Kong’s Luxi Shen (a recent graduate of Chicago Booth’s PhD Program), Booth’s Christopher K. Hsee, and Carnegie Mellon PhD candidate Joachim H. Talloen ran an experiment with a running club in Hong Kong in which runners were encouraged to complete as many track laps as they wanted with a range of prizes to be collected at the end. Shen, Hsee, and Talloen found that those facing an uncertain reward completed almost twice as many laps as runners who knew their prize in advance.

5. Our alumnae have reached new heights in Asia.

The Executive MBA Program at the University of Chicago has been around for a while—since 1943—and is the first program of its kind. But did you know we’ve also operated in Asia since 2000? Booth opened its first Asian campus at the historic House of Tan Yeok Nee in Singapore before relocating to Hong Kong in 2018.
