PHBS UK Programs
Peking University HSBC Business School, one of the most promising business schools in China, is proud of its accomplishments in the area of graduate education. With its main campus located in the thriving and entrepreneurial city of Shenzhen, China, PHBS has taken a bold step by opening a new campus in Boar’s Hill, England, three miles south of Oxford City.
⇨ Presently, PHBS offers 2 MA cross-border programs: Management and Finance. Both are two year, full-time, culminating in a final thesis and cross-border programs. Students admitted to these programs spend the first year of their master's degrees at the PHBS UK Campus, and their second year at the PHBS Shenzhen Campus in China, alongside Chinese peers and in an environment of cross-cultural dialogue.
The faculty members have earned their PhD degrees from top-ranked universities over the world, and all courses are instructed exclusively in English.
These programs are a great opportunity for students to, not only have a specialist training and cross-disciplinary coursework, but also a multi-country experience and in-depth cross-cultural exposure.
