[photopress:MBA_ceibs_1_2_3_4.jpg,full,alignright]One of the key challenges of operating a successful business school in China is simply keeping up with the fast-changing needs of executives.
How does CEIBS deal with this?
The CEIBS EMBA program is the largest in the world, accepting nearly 700 executives per year. The CEIBS EMBA requires a two-year commitment of studying four days per month, and is open to experienced mid-level managers.
It has to keep up with the times. Recent EEP classes added to the CEIBS roster include:
Negotiating effectively with Chinese which is taught in English on the CEIBS Shanghai campus. This program aims to provide new expatriates in China with knowledge about how to be effective with Chinese when negotiating.
Growth strategy which is taught in Chinese at the CEIBS Shenzhen facility,
Global CEO program which is taught in English at the campuses of CEIBS, Harvard, and IESE. These three business schools have joined academic forces to design, develop, and deliver a program which specifically addresses the challenges facing CEOs in China today.
CEIBS maintains a strong alumni network. (It is better to refer to it in that way rather than guanxi cross-fertilization. After 14 years of operations, CEIBS’ alumni database includes 6,000 graduates from the MBA and EMBA programs, as well as more than 50,000 graduates of the Executive Education programs.
Such contacts are invaluable as a source of connections with fellow China-based business leaders.
The campus is worthy of considerable note. Part was designed by IM Pei, the great architect who designed the glass pyramid which is the entrance to the Louvre. CEIBS is easier to get into than the Louvre. Less queues.
