Our programs focus on in-depth subject learning in finance, management and economics, with courses including both theoretical and practical learning.

Student Testimonials
"I applied for the Master of Management because of the outstanding teaching personnel, the international environment and the opportunity to choose from a wide range of elective courses to specialise within the field of management. So far, all my expectations have been met. Faculty members are inspiring in character and expertise, thus encouraging constant improvement of one’s own capabilities.
 
The international student body helped me to build a network that spans the globe while at the same time, I developed an understanding of Chinese culture through the interaction with local students.

Lastly, the various elective courses have given me the chance to pursue my own interests rather than following a predefined list of business courses, which for me is the essence of postgraduate education. Even though I am far from home and I miss it from time to time, I do not doubt that coming to PHBS was the right decision for me to take."

Student Testimonials
"The primary reason that I have chosen Master of Economics in PHBS was because of the diversity of the courses, which includes historical, political and sociological modules alongside pure theory and statistics. Indeed, its reputation of Peking University in China is needless to emphasize and its global presence is also rapidly thriving.

My time at PHBS was one of my most valuable experiences. Professors enlightened me with in depth knowledge regards to my field of study and resources and facilities, such as Bloomberg terminals, WIND and various other statistical software in financial lab, enabled me to access to all sorts of information.
 
So, if you’re searching for academic and extra-curricular excellence in the most energetic city in China, look no further than PHBS!"

Student Testimonials
I was attracted to the Masters of Management program at PHBS because it combined everything I was looking for in a postgraduate degree: an English-language curriculum at a reputable university with an international faculty, and a Chinese-business focus. Classes and life at PHBS have allowed me to learn valuable lessons about Chinese culture, institutions, and business interactions that have served me well as I have stayed in China post-graduation. 
 
The academic highlight of my time at PHBS was completing my thesis on venture capital in China. It was no doubt the hardest academic challenge I encountered at PHBS, but it was also the process through which I learned the most. Thanks to the guidance I received from my advisor, Professor Kevin Chastagner, and other professors within the Management Department the final product is something I will always be proud of.

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?

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..
