Overseas Summer Programmes for Taught Postgraduate Students

Enriching Students’ Global Perspective

To live up to our motto of Nurturing Ethical Leaders with Global Vision, the School of Business has been encouraging our students to experience the world via a prolonged summer programme. While this aligns with our mission, employers in Hong Kong reflect to us in various occasions that they see enhanced competitiveness in graduates with overseas experience. To offer more chances and exposure, the School consolidated the following summer programmes for our 2020/2021 cohort of Taught Postgraduate students:

Application Deadlines:
  • 31 January 2021 (for the “MBA Summer Electives” offers by LUISS Business School, Italy)
  • 18 February 2021 (for the Radboud Summer School offers by Radboud University, The Netherlands and the International Summer School offers by the University of Liverpool, UK). Students can still apply for both summer programmes after 18 February 2021 but they just can't enjoy the early bird offers provided by both Universities.
  • 28 February 2021 (for all summer schools / programmes other than the above mentioned)
