About the course

The MA in Contemporary Chinese Studies is an innovative, exciting and challenging one-year taught masters programme providing you with a deep insight into one of the world’s most dynamic nations. The programme provides total immersion in China while studying through English to the same rigorous high standards as the University of Nottingham in the UK.  

The MA in Contemporary Chinese Studies provides you with alternative pathways for applying a range of disciplinary perspectives to the study of Chinese business and society, politics and economics, sustainable development and the environment, media and popular culture, visual and performing arts, or modern Chinese history.

The School of International Studies is recognised as a leader in the provision of high quality, discipline-based research and degree programmes which incorporate the study of China. It trains a new generation of researchers and practitioners by academics conducting cutting-edge research with a focus on Chinese business, economy, geography, media and culture, history, language, law and politics.

Learn Chinese

You can choose to study Mandarin as optional modules, starting at the appropriate level for you – from beginner to advanced – depending on your prior study of the language. You will use what you have learned in a Chinese language and cultural setting.

Your study at Nottingham’s Ningbo China campus will enrich your cultural and linguistic experience and allow you to explore a range of themes and issues relevant for understanding contemporary China.

For international students whose first language is not mandarin Chinese, they can choose to take Mandarin modules. The level will be decided at registration. 

In considering options offered by other schools, you should make your choices according to your timetable to ensure your options do not clash. You will also need to ensure that you meet the entry requirements and have taken any pre-requisites outlined in the module specifications in the module catalogue.

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.

A major advantage of this programme it that it provides total immersion in China while studying in English to the same rigorous high standards as The University of Nottingham in the UK.

The programme will develop students' understanding of the economy, business and work environment of contemporary China; give students first-hand experience of living in China; equip students with the theoretical and methodological skills to carry out successful business and management studies in contemporary China and produce graduates equipped with the intellectual and transferable skills to satisfy their career aspirations and provide a foundation for life-long learning.
