Why go anywhere else to study the past, when you can come to China and study the future! – Prof. John Quelch
No one can deny that China is the “future” in the new global economy, and today few people can afford to ignore China. Increasingly, young men and women pursuing a professional career understand that China more likely than not will become an intrinsic part of their lifelong career path.
The CEIBS MBA programme is a unique 18-month journey which takes you to discover China, to discover the world, and to discover yourself. What we call “China Depth, Global Breadth” is what makes CEIBS so unique, and our MBA programme like no other. The CEIBS MBA experience meshes the latest in global business knowledge and insights from a diverse group of world-class faculty, along with an in-depth understanding of China and Chinese ways of doing business. As China’s #1 business school (Forbes) and ranked globally in the top-25 by the Financial Times for the last eight consecutive years, you can rest assured to receive a world-class education, combined with a life experience that will clearly differentiate you as a leader and as a person.
The CEIBS programme will allow you to discover China like you never thought you would. It will enable you to get behind the headlines and stereotypes and into what really makes China “tick”. You will learn the local culture, history, intercultural communication, and study real-life business cases of contemporary issues facing Chinese companies.
Every year, the programme includes approximately 60% of students who are Chinese, while more than a third of our students come from around the world. CEIBS to date is endowed with alumni from 58 countries. This proximity to Chinese professionals of the highest standard is invaluable in learning first-hand about Chinese business, and will help you cultivate life-long friendships.
Discover the World
Many find it ironic that a China MBA would be so strong in its global content, yet we see no contradiction. China is where everything is happening and where global business is merging. The energy, growth, and vibrancy found here is like nowhere else. Everyday, companies are moving their Asia headquarters from Singapore and Hongkong to Shanghai and other regions of China, making the region a commerce hub, and Shanghai a truly international city.
CEIBS professors live, teach, and consult to major Chinese and global companies operating in the country. More than two-thirds of our faculty originate from outside of China giving every class session a unique and global perspective. Leading mangers and thinkers in the business world come to our campus to discuss the most contemporary of international issues. And located virtually on the doorsteps of major multinational companies based in Shanghai, guarantees many of our students direct access to a global career.
Making a life changing decision takes courage. So get ready to be challenged, stimulated, and worked to your limits. The 18-month programme is designed to combine a set of core and elective academic courses, hands-on business projects, summer internships, an optional exchange program, and a host of extracurricular activities, that will help transform the way you perceive, think, work and manage. The experience is one of long hours filled with “sweat and tears”, yet the pay-off is evident – you will come out a different person than when you came in.
