We offer an optional pre-course to prepare admitted students for the semester ahead. This pre-course serves to reintroduce students to a number of key subjects including accounting, economics, business fundamentals, and the Chinese language.


Taken primarily in the first year of the program, core modules provide our students with well-balanced general management education in subjects such as managerial economics, marketing management, corporate finance, strategic management, organizational behavior, operations management, and more. A total of 33 credits must be accrued through core modules.


This required component is an experiential learning experience that provides students with an opportunity to undertake a real-life consulting project for an external client. Students have the chance to apply their knowledge to a real business problem while gaining practical insight into China’s business landscape. Our students often take advantage of this project to expand their professional network in China.


We offer over 30 different elective courses covering a wide range of topics. From these, our MBA students tailor their education to their personal interests by accruing 12 credits. Most electives take place in the third semester, allowing our students the opportunity to secure employment whilst writing their thesis during the fourth and final semester. Those students with the requisite level of fluency in Chinese can also choose to attend Chinese language MBA electives.
