Program Schedule

Fast-track Advantage

The one-year HKUST MIMT program offers students a fast-track advantage so they can reap the latest academic knowledge required for career development and obtain practical experience in the business world and international and cultural exposure outside their region in the shortest time.

The program commences with a Foundation Summer Term, followed by Term 1 (Fall), Term 2 (Spring), and Summer Internship after Term 2. The Foundation Summer Term is offered to HKUST home students only. Students are guaranteed an opportunity to go on exchange to a CEMS member school in either Term 1 or Term 2, while there will be exchange-in students from other CEMS member schools reciprocally.

Students have the following two tracks of exchange study experience to choose from:
