CityU MBA enters FT's top-100

The College's Master of Business Administration programme has entered the Financial Times' 2020 MBA top-100, a ranking system widely recognised for listing the best management programmes available worldwide

Professor Houmin Yan, Acting Dean of the College of Business, said "My congratulations go to Professor Kevin Chiang, Director of the MBA programme, and all members of his dedicated team who have put in such a tremendous effort since the programme's relaunch in 2013."

Highlights of the CityU MBA listing include the salary increase of graduates pre- and post-MBA, which is ranked 7th in the world with an average increase of 159%. Meanwhile, graduate career progress, which measures changes in level of seniority, is rated 38th in the world.

The Financial Times rankings are based on 20 different criteria including alumni responses, school data, and research. This year a new criterion, corporate social responsibility, has been introduced based on the proportion of teaching hours from core courses dedicated to CSR, ethics, social and environmental issues.
