China’s rapid economic development, its integration into the WTO, as well as its significance for the global economy are challenging the development and competitiveness of companies and institutions at national and international level. In an intercultural setting, students will learn to describe major aspects of the economic development in China and Europe and learn to analyse certain aspects of trade relations and financial flows as well as social and economic interrelations between the two regions.
The cross-cultural learning and teaching environment is further supported by a mandatory semester in China. The staff involved in the Master´s programme are internationally-renowned academics and senior researchers, with many leading experts in their field of study contributing to wider debate. An international academic staff exchange is an essential element in the programme and included in team-teaching.
The programme takes a comparative Chinese-European perspective in the majority of the modules. The programme offers an international and application-oriented approach to a multidisciplinary and academic education in Economics and Business Studies.
This full-time programme comprehends four terms of study, including a compulsory semester at the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics /SWUFE) in Chengdu.
While all students will spend the first and second term at the IMB Insitute of Management Berlin and the third term at the SWUFE Chengdu, they can study the fourth term in either location, depending on the Professor they chose to supervise their Master Thesis.
The programme starts every year on October 1st.
The MA Chinese-European Economics and Business Studies Programme offers a wide range of thematic focuses: Finance, Marketing, International Economics as well as Developing and Transformation Economies, supplemented with intercultural and area studies.
