The PHBS MBA is a 24-month programme, leading to a Master of Business Administration degree awarded by Peking University.  The programme consists of taking 16 courses within 16 months, two months of field study and project research, leading to the graduate thesis after  6 months. The courses will be offered in PHBS UK Campus (Oxfordshire), London, PHBS Shenzhen Campus, or Peking University Beijing Campus.  Each course will be taught over two weekends, a Friday and Saturday, monthly.  On each of the two weekends, Business Communication with Chinese, Cross-Cultural Understanding, and basic Mandarin Chinese will be taught on each Friday evening in an informal setting. These accumulated classes represent one course and will last the duration of the taught programme with the aim of equipping students with basic language skills and a sound understanding of the Chinese culture.
