The Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago will move its Asia Executive MBA program from Singapore to Hong Kong, according to a press release.
The press release notes Hong Kong's proximity to China as a motivating factor. The University of Chicago already has a center in Beijing, which was opened in 2010 to strengthen ties on the mainland.
Current Asia EMBA students will continue to study in Singapore until graduation. Next year's class will start in Hong Kong.
For more information, please see the Chicago Booth press release announcing the move of the Asia EMBA program to Hong Kong.
