Frequently Asked Questions

How is the MBA program different from the regular master program (MSc or MA)?

Similar to the Master of Science (MSc) and Master of Arts (MA) degree programs, the MBA is an equivalent study path for graduate students. The degree is only open to applicants who have completed the first round of university studies (obtained a bachelor’s degree) or received equivalent training. But unlike MA or MSc courses, MBA focuses on the practical part of training, in parallel with actual business experience, which usually includes actual decision-making for the real business environment and management projects implemented in the real market.

Hong Kong MBA programs are identical to those in the UK?

Sure. The MBA degree and certificate are the same regardless of where a student studies. Transcripts will not show if a course was taken in Hong Kong or the UK. Some schools allow students to attend the graduation ceremony on the UK campus.

How is the MBA program taught?

Business management courses will be taught by Qualifi and university professors, and will also be evaluated in various forms such as essays, research reports, speeches, group work, and practice reports.

In order to be admitted to a UK university, what level of education do I need?
Students need to have UK QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework) Level 4 and Level 5 diplomas before they can apply for a British university degree.

For the adult student (Mature Student) pathway, students need to have two years or more of work experience before they can apply for a master’s program at a British university. (It will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis)
What academic qualification documents do I need to provide?

For the mature student route, students may need to submit a resume and reference letter according to university requirements. (It will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis)

Who should write my work certificate/reference letter?

For assistance with your application, you can ask your current employer, company colleague, or business colleague to write a recommendation letter for you. There are differences in how universities handle the application process, but some business schools utilize standardized recommendation forms. In general, the recommender will submit the letter directly to the admissions office.

A MBA can enhance your career prospects in what ways?

Applying for the Master of Business Administration is to gain practical business knowledge and is a very good sign to inform your employer that you are ready for new challenges and management positions. Generally speaking, the salary of graduates of our recommended MBA program has increased by more than 20%.

Are online courses taken in UK time?

Do courses and assignments require specific computer hardware?

It is recommended that students prepare a Windows computer prior to the start of the course in order to ensure the learning process runs as smoothly as possible.
