Who We Are

The MBA Association (MBAA) has an important role in ensuring that the voice of each student is heard. It assists in facilitating each student’s personal growth and professional development. The MBAA also oversees the Student Clubs and provides support, acts as an advocate for their events and agendas and serves as a liaison with the MBA Office (MBAO). 

The MBAA Executive, consisting of the President, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, is elected by the students of the program.  The MBAA Committee is then subsequently appointed by the MBAA Executive. Recognizing the trust that has been placed on them, the MBAA is committed to ensuring that each student has a life changing experience in the program, develops lifelong relationships with their peers and becomes integrated with HKUST's global alumni family. The MBAA is committed to building a legacy together with the students.
