The Peking University-UCL MBA launches in September 2017 and brings together two world-leading universities together in Beijing, the heart of one of the largest and most dynamic economies in the world, where the MBA programme will be offered. Students will also have the opportunity to complete elective courses in London during the summer months.
The Peking University-UCL MBA combines the unique research and teaching strengths of the UCL School of Management and the Peking University National School of Development.
The National School of Development at Peking University hosts some of China’s foremost academics, responsible for advising the Chinese Government on development policies that have driven decades of strong and consistent economic growth. The experienced National School of Development academics will give you a high-level perspective of managing companies in shifting national and international government policy contexts.
Management best practices are evolving to adjust to the ubiquity of technology, and forward-thinking academics at the UCL School of Management, which specialises in innovation, entrepreneurship, technology, and analytics, will help you develop the quantitative and qualitative analytical skills necessary to engage with our changing world. UCL School of Management is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world's leading authorities on postgraduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education and placing it in the top 2% of Business Schools globally.
