China Europe International Business School(中欧国际工商学院)

China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) was co-founded by the Chinese government and European Union (EU) in 1994, with Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the EFMD serving as its executive partners. CEIBS has campuses in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Accra in Ghana, and Zurich in Switzerland.

As China's only business school to originate from government-level collaboration, CEIBS is committed to educating responsible leaders versed in 'China Depth, Global Breadth' in line with its motto of 'Conscientiousness, Innovation and Excellence'. Leaders from the Chinese central government and the EU, respectively, have lauded CEIBS as "a cradle of excellent executives" and "a role model of EU-China co-operation".

CEIBS was the first business school on the Chinese mainland to be accredited by both EQUIS and AACSB. Among all the programs CEIBS offers, MBA is the one and only full-time English program.

The 64-credit full-time MBA 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 impressive international exchange programme, one of three coordinated degree programmes and/or one of five overseas electives.

In the Financial Times (2020 & 2019), CEIBS MBA ranked #1 in Asia and #5 globally amongst full-time MBA programmes. In Bloomberg Businessweek's Best Business Schools (2019), CEIBS MBA ranked #1 in Asia.
