What is the difference between MCS and CCS?
MCS (Master's degree in China Studies for Economics and Management) Programme is a 2-year degree program, and CCS (Certificate Programme of China Studies) is a certificate programme without a degree.

PHBS will organize company visits, and you will have opportunities to communicate with the executives of these companies on certain topics.
What if I cannot attend some MCS courses due to my business schedule?
If you miss major required course classes, you will need to make them up during the following year, which can potentially affect your graduation year. For major elective courses, you may be able to take alternative courses offered in various programmes at PHBS. Please check with the programme office of the China Studies programme.
What are the graduation requirements?
You must pass all courses required by the MCS curriculum and the thesis defense organized by PHBS.
