Instead, we offer you a very strong curriculum, delivered by excellent professors in an effective and enjoyable learning environment. In addition, what differentiates this programme from others is that it is international with a China focus and is offered in both full time and part-time modes.

Our international team of professors will provide you with a broad perspective, consolidating knowledge and experience from all over the world. Many of your fellow students will come from China, thus lending their own mainland experience and focus to the programme.
