Just 13 years after launching its Singapore campus, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business has recently made the announcement that it will relocate its Executive MBA program to Hong Kong. The Hong Kong campus will begin operating as of 2014, and the current 2015 batch of graduating Executive MBA students from the Singapore campus will be able to complete their studies in Singapore.

The move is intended to allow students greater proximity to China, the world's second largest economy. The University of Chicago opened a Center in Beijing in 2010.

"Thanks to the success of our Asia program, Chicago Booth has built great momentum in Southeast Asia and developed a strong alumni base in the region," said Sunil Kumar, Chicago Booth dean and George Pratt Shultz Professor of Operations Management. "Expanding into Hong Kong allows us to have impact on future leaders in business and build new corporate relationships in North Asia as well, complementing our activities."

Other programming, including research, entrepreneurship, remote teaching, custom executive training and alumni events, will expand to Hong Kong, but the institution will continue its presence in Singapore. Chicago Booth says they are "exploring space options for holding classes and other activities in Singapore, after the Asia Executive MBA Program relocates." They have said potential activities in Singapore may include custom executive education, remote teaching, and seminars.
