Global Business Competition

We invite our students to participate in Global Business Competitions to test their mettle against other top MBA students around the world. You will be asked to form your own team of diversified global talents in your class, and get inspirational feedback on your business ideas from seasoned investors and senior executives. As a testament to our reputation as a competitive and leading business school, here are some of the recent accolades from international competitions:

Our team joined the IESE-Roland Berger International MBA Case Competition in Barcelona and came first among nine top global MBA teams. As the winners, each of us received an internship opportunity at Roland Berger. Thanks to the case-based teaching approach at HKUST, we went through numerous real-world business cases and became highly proficient in analyzing all sorts of companies and delivering effective presentations. This practical training prepared me well for both the case competition and my internship at the global consulting firm.
