  • Academics

    Credit information for KFBS students

    Kenan-Flagler students generally take a full load of business courses at the CUHK Business School, which will transfer for business core and/or business elective requirements towards the major. The CUHK Business School offers courses in the areas of finance, marketing, management, accountancy, and hotel and tourism management. It is also possible to take a non-business elective course, and CUHK offers a wide range of departments and course offerings.

    Courses taken at the Chinese University of Hong Kong will transfer back to UNC Pass/Fail. Achieving a grade of C or above will transfer back to UNC as a pass course, which will not affect UNC GPA. Students who receive any grade under C will fail the course and an F grade will transfer back to UNC, which will affect their UNC GPA. Though transfer credit for this program is Pass/Fail, future employers and graduate schools will also look at the CUHK transcript, so grades are important.

    Students participating on this program will transfer back 3 UNC credits for every 3 credit course at CUHK, and are expected to take either four or five courses worth 3 credits each during the semester. A student who earns a C or better in all courses will receive a total of 12-15 UNC credits for their semester abroad.

    This program also fulfills Experiential Education and you will earn 5 points towards the Kenan-Flagler Global Inclusive Leadership Initiative.« PrevNext »

It is directly accessible to the center of the city by the fast and convenient underground subway. The underground station is located next to the new CUHK Business School building.

    Students enjoy the campus life at CUHK as well as exploring the fast-paced and dynamic city of Hong Kong. With over 7 million people, Hong Kong is densely populated with impressive transportation networks and soaring high rises. Founded as a trading center, Hong Kong is one of the world's financial hubs, an important center for multinational corporations, and a gateway to China.
