International Exchange

HKUST's MScISM program has established exchange partnership with the following universities, and selected MScISM students have the opportunity to gain international exposure through studying on exchange in these renowned universities in Europe.

  • London Business School (LBS)
  • ESSEC Business School (ESSEC)
  • Aalto University (Aalto)

The exchange option will provide great opportunities for MScISM students not only to gain international exposure, but also to study with exchange-in students from these two schools at HKUST. 

LBS students will join MScISM students to study together in Hong Kong in the Fall Term while ESSEC students will do so in the Spring Term. As such, MScISM students will have chance to mingle with exchange-in students and learn from their international perspectives in class. On the other hand, selected MScISM students will study in LBS or ESSEC in their London or Cergy campus respectively from April to July to gain more international exposure and cultural experience.

No extra tuition fee will be charged for this exchange option but students are required to cover costs for accommodation and other expenses.
