Student Testimonials
I applied for the Master of Management because I trust that a renowned institution like Peking University will not only offer fascinating courses but also an environment that facilitates individual and group learning and allows me to emerge myself with different mindsets and cultures, connecting with and learning from other young professionals from all over the world.

Throughout two years, having my independent research while learning from doing diverse assignments make this program the right place for me to tailor a bank of skills, experience, and references, all of which enable me to achieve further career aspirations. Despite the effect of COVID-19, with the help of dedicated professors, kind peers, amazing staff, a top-notch learning facility on campus, and an array of diverse extracurricular activities, I have had an eventful time full of challenges and fond memories.

Student Testimonials
Studying at PHBS was a unique academic challenge and one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. 
The Master of Economics programme combines a dual theoretical and empirical approach which allowed me to deepen my understanding of economics foundations and to develop my quantitative and analytical skills. The programme also offers a broad variety of elective courses and seminars that gave me the chance to pursue more specialized training in the areas of Economics in which I was more interested in. PHBS provides a multicultural atmosphere where you can meet people with different backgrounds from all over the world, and encourages you to build a global network.
To anyone looking for academic excellence and a truly international environment, I would absolutely recommend it!

Student Testimonials
I applied for the Master of Management in PHBS with a goal to better understand the Chinese economy and immerse myself in the Tech capital of the East which is Shenzhen. I was assured from the beginning that Peking University will be the only place for me to be able to foster and develop myself in China and I felt I made the right choice.

During my studies, I get to meet amazing individuals which helped expand my network to not just across China but to other regions such as Europe and Africa. The diversity within the classes have always been the favorite part of my memory in PHBS. Aside from making friends, I could better understand the diversity of perspectives available especially through the well-crafted cases and assignments that the professors have provided me. My experience has been great throughout and I really cherish my time there!

What are the requirements for maintaining a scholarship from PHBS? If I fail a class, will I lose my scholarship?
Scholarship statuses will be reevaluated after each academic year. Scholarship receiving students that fail one course at the end of the first year will have their scholarship downgraded. Students are also expected to follow all rules and regulations set by the school and the Chinese government. A committee will convene at the end of every academic year to ensure that students receiving scholarships have met the requirements. A student's academic record for their first year of study at the university as well as their level of involvement in university activities will be assessed. If a scholarship is revoked, the student is expected to pay his/her tuition in full for the following school year.
What is the limit of classes I can take in one module?
The standing rule is that you may take take up to 3 3-credit courses in PHBS for each module. When you arrive on campus you may talk to individual professors about possibly auditing courses for no credit, if you are looking to take extra classes.
When can I register for classes? When can I see the syllabi for the next Module?
Students will be able to select their courses online several days prior to the beginning of each module (which for the first module is during orientation). Each module’s course schedule will be distributed online several weeks in advance. The Administrative Office tracks student interest in specific courses and student demand for required courses for each Department, so students very seldom are unable to register for their intended courses..
