Studying an MBA in China

The rapidly growing economy and fast-paced business environment in China means it is a great place to study for an MBA program.

In a business community that is global and ever changing leaders must be equipped with broad skills, must be able to easily adapt to both global and local perspectives, and be capable of dealing with complexity and change. China is home to the top MBA program in Asia - getting your MBA here will undoubtedly give you the skills you need to be successful in business.

What MBA programmes are offered in China?

A typical MBA program in China consists of compulsory courses in management, economics, marketing and finance, as well as elective, foundation and integration modules and group consulting projects. Programs are designed to lay a solid foundation in management, while providing the flexibility to tailor a business program that fits individual interests and career ambitions. Tailoring your MBA to your own interests can be done by choosing modules that focus in particular areas, such as marketing or entrepreneurship.

What are the costs of studying for an MBA program in China?

Tuition fees for MBA courses in China vary massively, so it is impossible to predict an average cost. Here are some examples below.

The cost for an 18-month MBA at the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) in Shanghai is 336,000 Yuan – approximately £33,540 or $53,320. At the Chinese University Hong Kong the cost is HK$82,500 – around £6680 or $10,625. The differences are obviously huge, and therefore so will be the funding options that you need to look into when you have decided on your MBA course and university.

On top of this you must take into account living expenses, but luckily these are generally pretty affordable in Asia. Studying in China will significantly boost your career prospects, as many of the big business schools themselves are recognised by the corporate world as a great source of recruitment – so, often the most successful students will have the first choice of jobs.

Can international MBA graduates stay in China to work after graduation?

In order to stay in China and work after graduation you must apply for a Z visa. If you have your MBA from a school in China it means it is more likely that your visa application will be approved, but for more information and to go about applying go to the China Visa Application Service Center website. Visa offices are located across the world – twelve in Europe, including two in the UK, nine in the North America, including two in Canada, six in Asia and three in Australia.
