MBA Alumni Referral Programme for Intake 2020

Dear Alumni,

Happy Chinese New Year and wish you a safe and healthy Year of the Rat! In the recently announced Financial Times Global MBA Ranking 2020, our programme moved up seven places to #50, once again re-entering the Global Top 50. This is a reflection of the strong career progression of our alumni, and the continuous improvement that the MBA programme has strived to achieve.

Our advantage within the Greater Bay Area, the strong bond within our 6,000+ MBA alumni community, and its credentials of equipping students for career change and progression all make CUHK MBA a competitive programme. Each year when we interview candidates, those referred by alumni can be easily identified – in addition to a solid understanding of CUHK MBA, they are a great fit and remain close and loyal to the MBA community even after their studies. With that, we are introducing the Alumni Referral Programme for Intake 2020 and hope to get your full support on this.

The process is simple – if you have referred a friend, family member or colleague to apply to our MBA programmes for Intake 2020, kindly email us at with his/her full name. All candidates referred by CUHK MBA alumni will receive a guaranteed interview.
