The master in Business, Economy and Society of Contemporary China is a 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.
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. It has been created to meet the demand from industry and research for graduates who have in-depth knowledge of contemporary China.
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.
Students will also have the opportunity to apply for and complete a 10-week internship in China allowing students to become familiar with the Chinese workplace and to put what they have learned into practice in real life.
The course is aimed at graduates of all disciplines with an interest in China and seeks to extend your language skills and understanding of China in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
