The Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Global Marketing (MScEGM) is a Master's degree programme offered by the Department of Marketing, Hong Kong Baptist University, to be completed on a 15-month full-time study basis.
The programme is designed for students who seek a graduate education in order to advance into management and other leadership roles or to start a career as an entrepreneur. Applicants from all countries will be considered if they can demonstrate the necessary language skills.
Students can choose to study the whole programme in Hong Kong to obtain a single Master's degree. Or, they can apply for the double degree pathway to obtain two Master's degree, one awarded by HKBU and one by the Grenoble École de Management (GEM).
The curriculum has been carefully designed to embrace a global view with global case studies and a business project addressing the principles and practices of entrepreneurship and international marketing management.

I'm a graduate of MScEGM. Happy to know that there is more flexibility now on study locations and on single/double degree. Thinking back the 1 year study.
