I found my challenge!


This review is for CEIBS

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2019

Experience during the program

I’m from Germany and I decided to move to China to pursue an MBA. My friends still think I’m crazy. Why would you go to China and pay for education when it’s (mostly) free of charge here? And why not US or UK? The answer is: I want to learn more about a part of our world so different that most people seem not even to consider this as an option.

Education rankings are still dominated mainly by “experienced” US/UK b-schools. But if you look closely you will recognize one Asian B-school which clears up the field from the back. CEIBS is #1 in Asia and already #11 in the world (FT Ranking 2017). After only 2 months in China I have my own explanation for this good position. For me CEIBS offers sheer endless opportunities in a high-level learning environment (e.g. Student Activities, Student Events, Professional Events, Career Development Center,...).

I arrived in Shanghai two months ago. My resume so far: 1. When you move to China be aware of cultural differences. It will not prevent the cultural shock (at least not for me) but you will adapt faster; 2. Opportunities in China (not only in CEIBS) are countless! Stay open-minded; 3. When you want your MBA experience to be a real challenge instead of a nice break from work (exaggerated) than CEIBS must be on your option list!

I'm looking forward to the next months to come. The only downside so far is that my day only has 24 hours and opportunities are countless.

Thanks for the post. I am from Asia and interested in pursuing an MBA. Though my preferences were USA and Canada, yet after reading this I think I should enlarge the list of my preferences.
