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 offers MBA, Finance MBA, EMBA, Global EMBA, Hospitality EMBA, DBA (Switzerland), and Executive Education programmes (see Programmes Overview). CEIBS was the first business school on the Chinese mainland to be accredited by both EQUIS and AACSB. CEIBS has placed in the top tier of the FT’s ranking of global MBA programmes for six consecutive years, and has been ranked in the top 5 on its global EMBA list for four consecutive years.
Amongst the best in Asia, CEIBS’ faculty team is uniquely equipped to deliver a combination of ‘China Depth’ and ‘Global Breadth’ in both teaching and research. More than 80 full-time faculty members – two-thirds of whom are from overseas – represent more than 10 countries and regions worldwide and bring a wealth of experience from teaching, research and business practice. CEIBS has ranked #1 in the category of Business Administration on Elsevier’s list of Most Chinese Cited Researchers for two consecutive years, an indicator of the school’s research capabilities in these fields.
