The GLOBE in your hands.

GLOBE (Global Learning Opportunities in Business Education) has been a pioneer in business education at the undergraduate level in Hong Kong and also in the international education arena. It is designed to empower highly aspiring students with distinct business acumen, cultural fluency and entrepreneurial mindset, through an internationally oriented curriculum and unique tri-continental learning experience, to become leaders who create meaningful impact in the global community.

The Chinese University of Hong Kong accepts applications to GLOBE through its Global Business Studies program, starting from 2005-2006.

Knowledge: Best of 3 top business schools from 3 continents

Standing on the academic frontier, GLOBE offers an innovative curriculum that includes the best and most challenging business courses from the three top international business schools. This is achieved with the expertise of each school, and by integrating the tailored, regional-focused classes on global business environment, hands-on projects on different industries, and study trips across the three continents. GLOBE courses focus on case studies, international management issues, and the understanding of business climates around the world. Moreover, CUHK students have the option to select a second business concentration, a minor or second major offered by different faculties.

Experience: Genuine cultural immersion and enrichment activities

Unlike other exchange opportunities, GLOBE admits 18 students from each of the three partner schools every year, who will study as an international cohort in Copenhagen, Hong Kong and Chapel Hill for three semesters. Their class-based learning is reinforced by study trips across the three continents, and other enrichment activities such as Global Business Forum, workshops on team effectiveness, case analysis, career planning, and various company visits. Their experience of living and working with their global counterparts allows them to fully integrate into and understand the nuances of the local cultures, developing their global mindset and essential skills to confront the challenges in the ever-changing business environment.

Network: Lifelong relationship and global alumni network

GLOBE not only provides learning opportunities for students, but also a nonpareil platform to amass top students from three continents together. The 18 months of living and studying together helps build strong and long-lasting bonding within the class. In addition, through various alumni engagement opportunities, students can develop connections across the uniquely global alumni network. Such an international network will surely bring lifetime benefits to students.
