Introduction

Programme Aim

The HKU One-year Master of Global Management (MGM) programme is designed specifically for fresh graduates and young professionals who want to start their careers in a culturally rigorous and demanding workplace, and learn how to manage and work with people from a widening spread of backgrounds.

The HKU Master of Global Management programme focuses on the critical subset of skills that correlate to leadership success, particularly in a multicultural structure.

Problem-solving, which involves selecting, analysing, and considering information, is more difficult than it seems and is essential to good decisions. Being orientated towards results, looking beyond vision and objectives leads to efficiency and productivity. Open-mindedness is needed to absorb change, encourage employee ideas, balance stakeholders’ interests and sift the important from the trivial. And you must be a supportive manager, show genuine interest, build trust with colleagues, and get involved in group work to reassure employees and consolidate energies.
