The MSc in Business, Economy and Society of Contemporary China is an innovative one-year full-time taught programme producing highly skilled graduates best placed to succeed in one of the world’s most dynamic, vibrant and rewarding countries. It has been created to meet the demand from industry and business for graduates who have in-depth knowledge of contemporary China.

The programme is open to both international students and those from the People’s Republic of China and will supply you with the tools you need to develop a rewarding career in a country poised to become the world's biggest economy.

Business decision making is a highly case sensitive process and requires a profound understanding of the environments in which a decision is taken. A successful business education not only teaches students the theories, but also teaches them where to apply them and in what circumstances.

Course structure

The module information for 17/18 session is subject to change.

The programme will be offered full time over a period of 12 months with students studying 120 taught credits in relevant modules. Students will also have the choice of a 60 credit in-depth study of a chosen topic.

This course is administered by the School of International Studies, but students also take one core module from Nottingham University Business School China (NUBS), and are encouraged to take Mandarin from the Language Centre.

  • Research Design and Practice in China
  • Contemporary China Issues
  • Economic Development in Contemporary China

China has the world’s biggest population and the second largest economy in the world. As part of the BRICS and BASIC group, China has a large impact in world affairs: understanding China is increasingly becoming essential to understanding the world. Politics and International Relations of China provide a fascinating opportunity to examine issues and themes in modern politics. From dynastic rule to the fall of the Qing, unequal treaties and their legacies in the form of Hong Kong and Macau, China offers an example for examining and analyzing long standing questions of territory, border, identity and sovereignty. From these historical origins to the more recent ‘Rise of China’, the buzzword of the 21st Century, this MSc degree brings together elements required to fully appreciate and understand China’s rise, its origins, and its current position in the world.

The MSc covers China’s domestic and international politics, and the historical and theoretical issues through the Chinese Politics courses of State and Society in the Chinese Political process (domestic politics), China and International Politics (international relations) and Taiwan’s Politics and Cross-Strait Relations. Each China Politics course combines empirical and theoretical material in a historically sensitive manner. The courses aim to establish thematic groupings for the purposes of considering and debating the government and politics of China, and further examine the relations between the government and politics of China and regional developments, international pressures, and the global political economy.

Visit the website http://www.soas.ac.uk/china-institute/msc-contemporary-china-studies/

Structure

Students on the programme take the core course Understanding Contemporary China - 15PCIC002 and two taught option courses (2 Units) from the list given below.

Teaching & Learning

- Lectures and Seminars

Most courses require students to attend two or three hours of classes each week. This time will be spent in lectures, seminars, tutorial discussions and student presentations: the exact mixture of activities varies somewhat from course to course. At Masters level there is a particular emphasis on students’ contributions and presentations, and students are also expected to read extensively and prepare for each class in advance.

Language courses typically involve more hours of contact time, especially at elementary level, and regular homework.

The assessment on most courses consists of two or three coursework essay assignments and an unseen written examination, sat in April or May. However, some courses are assessed purely on the basis of coursework, including essays and reaction papers.

- Dissertation

A 10,000-word dissertation will be written on a topic agreed with the Programme Convenor of the MSc Contemporary China Studies and the candidate's supervisor.

About the MSc programme

This programme draws on a range of social science disciplines to examine China’s politics, international relations, economic history, society and culture.

Although this programme is based in the Department of Anthropology, it brings together LSE’s considerable multi-disciplinary expertise on China for the benefit of students seeking a comparative perspective of the country. A key feature of the MSc is that China is always considered in a comparative and historical framework. For example, you will be asked to compare and contrast China with India, and with the countries of modern Europe, in addition to other appropriate comparators.

This programme is an ideal preparation if you have career interests related to China, in business, government, or cultural exchange. It also provides a strong foundation for further research at PhD level in anthropology, economic history, government, international relations or social policy.

Graduate destinations

The programme is good preparation for research work in an academic discipline, but is also appropriate for those with career interests related to China and East Asia, for example, in business, culture, or government. Graduates of this programme have chosen a variety of careers, including as analysts, consultants, journalists, and government officials.

The staff involved in the Master´s programme are internationally-renowned academics and senior researchers. An international academic staff exchange is an essential element in the programme included in team-teaching.

A master's programme to prepare students for business in China and on the world stage.

A Career Starter

The Master of Science in Business Management (MScBM) Programme provides a general focus on junior business executives and fresh graduates from all disciplines wishing to jumpstart their business careers. With a broad and comprehensive scope ranging from accounting & finance, business law, marketing to management, and an emphasis on dimensions of international business, students shall refine their business knowledge, gain practical experience, hone personal skills, and be ready to kickstart their career.

China Focus, Global Perspective

The MScBM programme curriculum incorporates a wealth of China elements to equip students with general knowledge and skills necessary for success on the Chinese Mainland. Our China-related elective courses, to name but a few, include Legal Aspects of China Trade and Investment, International Trade and Finance in China, and Chinese Wisdom and Management. To further accentuate this China focus, students of the programme are uniquely benefited from a connection with the alumni of the MBA and MScBM programme – many of whom are senior business executives in China –through a series of learning and social activities. This connection provides valuable learning and interactive experience.

Hong Kong Baptist University also offers opportunities for international exchange via its partnership with overseas and Mainland partner institutions, with possibility of credit transfer to the MScBM programme. Moreover, as part of the programme, MScBM students can choose to participate in a one-week business field study in a city in Greater China or overseas, during which they will evaluate a designated company or industry and draw up recommendations to improve business performance. It presents a stimulating environment where students may apply their knowledge of China/international business practices to tackle challenges in a real setting.

All-rounder development

The global business world is seeing a paradigm shift towards what is termed “soft skills” – where such attributes as attitude, intuition, ideas, creativity, energy, and engagement are increasingly valued. The MScBM programme aims at cultivating these aspects of our students through a combination of seminars, workshops, corporate visits and career development training under the umbrella "Executive Development Series” specifically designed to provide a “live learning” experience. These activities offer students practical experience from business leaders, chances to obtain knowledge and skills in leadership, presentation and professional image building, and grasp of latest job market developments.

International recognition and support for International Students

The programme has been triple accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) for full international recognition. We are among the rare 1% of the world’s business schools to obtain this triple accreditation.

International applicants of the programme are also supported by an array of scholarships including the Diversity Contribution Scholarship and other awards for distinguished achievements. International students are given support by the dedicated International Office of Hong Kong Baptist University to help them adapt to life on campus and in the vibrant city of Hong Kong.
