CEIBS MBA Overview

CEIBS offers a world-class, 18-month, full-time MBA programme taught in English and designed to prepare talented professionals with strong career aspirations, promising managerial potential, and a clear international orientation for post-graduation roles as global business thought leaders. The CEIBS MBA programme primarily aims to enhance students' ability to identify and utilise business opportunities, solve complex business problems, motivate people, and develop organisations. The programme focuses on developing participants' leadership, professionalism, sense of social responsibility, cross-cultural competence, and entrepreneurial spirit.

Ranked #5 globally & #1 in Asia the FT, #1 in Asia Forbes and #1 in Asia Bloomberg BusinessWeek (2020), the 64-credit full-time programme consists of compulsory courses totalling 33 credits and elective courses totalling 31 credits. The programme is designed to lay a solid foundation of management fundamentals while providing the flexibility of tailored programmes to fit individual interests and career ambitions. Students can choose to focus on general business management, or select one of four concentrations in Finance, Marketing, Digital Business or Entrepreneurship. Furthermore, students are required to gain international experience either through the school's international exchange programme, one of three coordinated degree programmes and/or one of five overseas electives.

One of CEIBS’ most significant features is its clear China focus, encapsulated in our positioning statement: "China Depth, Global Breadth”. Basic Chinese language competency is compulsory for foreign students in order to improve their marketability in China’s dramatically growing economy. Those who do not speak Chinese when applying for admission will be recommended to attend a Chinese language course in the summer before MBA classes begin. Chinese language course of different levels will be offered for foreign students during the first year of the programme.

Once classes are underway, many of the cases discussed in core courses and electives are taken from CEIBS’ own pool of China-specific cases written by faculty and staff of the Case Development Centre. In addition, the school dedicates significant resources to staging the 'China Discovery Series' each year – an intensive elective series that aims to deepen students’ understanding of China’s business environment and offers an opportunity to analyse perspectives on China’s history, international relations and economic development. 

Given the dynamic business environment developing outside the walls of campus, the school brings students closer to the opportunities and challenges through initiatives such as the ‘Integrated China Strategy Project', China modules and Real Situational Learning Method, ensuring both a rigorous and experiential business education is provided.
