Hi Pradeep.

Sorry for the delayed response. There is no application deadline as such. Admissions are done on a rolling basis. The application too is fairly simple. They ask one SOP kinda question. TOEFL scores are waived off for Indian students.

While researching for good Asian universities to do my MBA I came across HKU. What interested me was their strong focus towards the Asian markets in addition to having ties with top univs like London Business School and Columbia Business School. It is the only MBA program which offers part of the course in LBS and CBS (not a student exchange program). Since it is a relatively new course (started just 4 years back) it is yet to figure in the top b school rankings. However 'The Economist' has rated it 37th best in the world.

I had a telephonic interview with them and got first hand info about the course from them.

Kunal.. Looking at your credentials you stand a very good chance of getting into HKU. Regarding your query on a career in consulting, I had raised the very same query to the interviewer. He told me that though a lot of companies recruiting from HKU are financial institutions, good consulting firms do come to campus.

hi ashish

I am in Mumbai. I have accepted your request in my gtalk and my cell number is 9960385554.

Well i have to reply to them by 9th feb with an acceptance fee of 40000 HKD which is actually a big amount. I still have to receive responses from 7 more colleges which would be spread over entire feb. I guess I would be accepting HKU's offer and have at least something in hand (a bird in hand is better than 2 in the bush)..

so far i have received only the offer letter and no docs with regards to visa processing or any other. Did you get any other info from them apart from the offer letter?
