Chinese University of Hong Kong

Chinese University HK

“It’s an awesome experience that I would recommend anyone to do… Hong Kong is just about the perfect place for people who love big cities and love to travel. It's right in the middle of Asia and it allows convenient travel to all of the surrounding areas. Overall, this Hong Kong experience has truly opened up my eyes and reinforced my desires to work abroad in the future.”

Sandra Chao, CUHK, Fall 2004

The Chinese University of Hong Kong was created in 1963 as the product of three colleges: The New Asia College (founded in 1949), Chung Chi College (founded in 1951) and The United College of Hong Kong (founded in 1956). A fourth College – Shaw College, was added in 1986. Like HKUST and NUS, CUHK is one of Asia’s leading tertiary institutions with a complete business administration department. The department is composed of the school of accountancy, school of hotel management, department of decision sciences and managerial economics, department of finance, department of management and department of marketing.

The campus is located on a 331-acre campus with approximately 110 state-of-the-art buildings. It rises above Tolo Harbour just north of Sha Tin (which is a burgeoning town in Hong Kong’s historic rural area.)
