Program description:

The full-time MBA program is designed for students who are planning for a career switch, looking to gain more international exposure or simply want to expand their career opportunities in China and Asia by equipping yourself with more solid regional knowledge. You will have the opportunity to participate in a summer internship and an optional one-semester overseas exchange at one of our 60 partner schools worldwide. 

One of the most flexible curriculums in Asia based on five career tracks. Your academic knowledge will be complemented by credit-bearing practicums and professional career activities that will give you an unparalleled edge. The curriculum is made up of 52 credits. You will gain about a quarter of your credits by studying the required core courses, and the remaining credits through flexible core, elective, credit-bearing practicums and a variety of career services.

Your MBA journey will begin with three pre-MBA accelerator courses: Accounting, Data Analysis and Python Programming.
