CEIBS MBA Career Report 2014

Salaries have also been impressive this year, with more than half of the graduates landing jobs with annual salaries ranging from RMB300,000 to RMB500,000. School resources were the source of 65.4% of the student job opportunities.

In recent years, with the rapid development of China's economy, demand for high-caliber business professionals has grown rapidly. An increasing number of businesses are offering leadership development programmes (LDP) to MBA students from CEIBS. After entering an LDP, graduates usually find themselves rotated between different geographic areas and/or different departments in the company and quickly become an essential resource for the company they have joined. Sixty companies released 77 LDP opportunities to CEIBS graduates this year. LDP recruiters are highly selective about their partnerships with business schools, and many cooperate with CEIBS as their exclusive partner, or as one of only a handful of partners in Asia. More than half of the LDP openings that CEIBS students have been recruited for have been at a global level and a number of companies have been so impressed with the performance of their CEIBS recruit that they have expanded their partnerships with CEIBS.

Ford, AstraZeneca, Bayer, Dianping.com, DuPont, Education First, Fosun Group, Infosys, Roche and Samsung all hired more than three students each.

Amazon, ANZ, Boston Consulting Group, Dow Chemical, GE, Hay Group, Legend Capital, McKinsey, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Nike, Pingan Asset Management, Reckitt Benckiser, Roland Berger and UBS are also among the recruiters.
