How We Teach

The Guanghua MBA strikes a balance between providing the highest quality management education and introducing the cultural sensibilities and related approaches necessary for career development in the Asia-Pacific business landscape.

Guanghua is more than a business school, and our MBA program cultivates leaders beyond management skills. That is why we have created MBA+, a new strategic concept for interdisciplinary research and teaching in order to provide our students with a comprehensive skill set to challenge conventional thinking and tackle complex problems in today's rapidly changing economy.


Practical Academia

We believe that academia has an important role to play in practical business decision making. Our MBA stresses the importance of understanding why the Chinese business landscape is the way it is, and efforts are consistently made – by both students and staff – to remain current with contemporary business thinking.
