Think Global. Think China.



About Guanghua School of Management


Located in the beautiful campus of Peking University – China’s oldest and most prestigious institution – The Guanghua MBA program emphasizes the reality of doing business in China.

Being one of China’s leading business schools, we are committed to the highest of academic standards. We strive to ensure that our students not only gain the tools and insights to excel in China’s competitive and ever-changing business environment, but also the fundamental skills and knowledge to become business leaders for the global society.

Our advantage is that we are at the heart of China – aside from our main campus in Beijing, we have four core branch campuses across key geographical regions in China, including Shanghai, Shenzhen, Xi’an and Chengdu, with our sixth branch campus also under way and is set to be opened in China’s new economic zone, the Xiongan New Area.

Professional success in China is rarely achieved alone – you will need more than just management skills. Here at Guanghua School of Management, we provide you with access to China’s leading academics as well as the most prominent social, business and political leaders to advance your career both in China and in the larger global landscape.


Our Curriculum

The Guanghua MBA program is taught through required core modules that provide a well-balanced general management education, and elective courses which enable students to tailor their education to their specific interests. Most core modules are taken in the first year, while the second year is structured to allow students to undertake internships and other professional projects alongside academic study.

To better equip our students with the knowledge and skills to tackle complex problems in today’s rapidly changing economy, our curriculum is based on the MBA+ strategic concept in which we aim to provide a China-centric approach to better help our students understand the essence of doing business in China – from the economy to consumer behavior to culture.

Under our MBA+ curriculum, we provide an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research that emphasizes on four key aspects to offer our students the tools to understanding China. Doing business in China is more than just management skills, and our curriculum reflects our mission to transform students into global leaders with a specialty in China business.
