    It is AACSB accredited, but their placement record is mainly in Asia. I'm not saying that you won't get a job in the US or Europe, but it wouldn't be as easy to do as if you got your degree from a US institution.
    Til now I always got by on my own
    I never really cared until I met you...

    No one can predict the market 5 years from now. But I graduated from a Singapore school and got a job in a good European school (I had 1 top psych journal and 1 top management journal r&r). Although I did face issues in the job market and US schools were not really ready to look at me.

    That is not what I've seen. Like I said the placement record from City Uni HK has largely been to Asia, there are obviously many reasons for this that are unrelated to anything from the demand side. From experiences I've heard from close friends, though, US schools have a bias for US schools.

    If you do well in the program and come out with a publication or two, you shouldn't have an issue getting a job. If your goal is to be in the US, though, you should consider US programs. The path is much simpler with that route.

    I'll let them speak for themselves, but I'm pretty sure SB is marketing.

    I can only try to repeat what I've heard, since I'm only in the beginning of my PhD.

    The demand for Marketing PhD in the US is strong, compared to some other fields (like non-business, non-STEM PhDs). But that doesn't mean it is easy, especially if you want a good academic job. Supply is also strong, and it is harder for those with a PhD from other countries. Of course it is possible, but harder.

    And the increase in the demand for Business PhDs in general has been partially helped by the boom of MBA programs in the last decades. However, now the boom is over, some MBA programs are thriving but many are struggling. And that's expected to have a negative impact in the job market for Business PhDs.

    It still doesn't mean that things look bad in the future, but it seems it is an exaggeration to say it will be easy.

    It is too late now lol. Well most of their students are Chinese (with limited English) so it would only make sense their placements are mostly to China as they are keen on going home.

    I am in marketing. I know past HK graduates with top tier publications who faced issues breaking into the US market. At least those students got US flyouts. I got AMA interview from 1 US school but no flyouts. But I did reasonably well in getting non-US AMA interviews and flyouts and I know other Asian grads who had similar experience.

    If you are doing CB, HK is a very good place to be as some of the most influential researchers of our field are based in HK and from what i know, the students attend classes and work with profs from other HK schools as well.
