Advance Your Career with a Top-Ranked Master’s Degree from UCD

Introducing University College Dublin’s (UCD) Hong Kong study programmes for achieving an MSc in Management, Finance or Digital Marketing.

A major problem for Hong Kong’s employers is in discerning the star applicants from the average, given that most people know how to talk up their resume. However, some qualifications speak for themselves. The University College Dublin (UCD) MSc qualifications, in association with Kaplan in Hong Kong, are powerful enhancers to ensure your resume sits at the top of the pile when applying for the best jobs in Hong Kong.

While spending time in Dublin might be appealing, it can also be a challenge if your family, friends and current job are all based in Hong Kong. Therefore, one of the best things about this qualification is that you don’t need to leave the city, or your current job, to get it. The other ‘best things’ are that UCD is an established and recognised business school, and that the study schedule is designed to work around your work commitments.
