MBA in Canada vs. MBA in Hong Kong


paul
Dear all,
I am currently located in Hong Kong, and planning to move back to Canada after 3 years. I would like to take an MBA before my relocation. Will the employers in Canada prefer to hire an employee with an MBA in Canada instead? Will there be any advantage if I take the MBA from Hong Kong Unviersity (i.e. The Chinese University of Hong Kong or Hong Kong Unveristy) with working exerpience in Hong Kong? If no, should I just focus on the Canada MBA programs for my career development in long term? Many thanks.
Best regards,
Paul

Just curious: why would you want to do your MBA before going back to Canada? I'd suggest that if you want to eventually work in Canada, you should do your MBA there to be in proximity to recruiters and even land an internship with a Canadian company.

You might save some cash if you did your MBA at CUHK versus say, York Schulich - but that would depend on what program features you take advantage of and how you handle your second year.

Unless you are thinking of the more reputable programs such as U of T, York, UWO, or Queen's, I would rather pursue a UK (such as Strathclyde) or US MBA (HKU with Columbia) in Hong Kong.

Depending on what you want to get out of a MBA, UK MBA's are generally cheaper than Canadian ones and rank higher than Canadian ones (aside from the ones above)

I would think so - if only to be close to the businesses you'll be applying to.

Think about Steve's point as well though - unless you can get into a top tier school in Canada you may be better off with a lower tier UK program.

Paul,

I would suggest that you do your MBA in Canada, and use the next two years to maximise your GMAT and TOEFL score. From the way you write, I imagine that English is not your native language. It will really help you with Canadian employers if you have perfect, error-free written and spoken English.

If you have not already studied business at the undergraduate level, HKU SPACE runs an Advanced Diploma in Business Management. If you have, then a French course will also help you in Canada.
