Introduction to the CEIBS Beijing Campus
The China Europe International Business School opened its Beijing campus on April 24, 2010, bringing CEIBS a gleaming new facility located on 3.3 hectares within Beijing’s Zhongguangcun Software Park, alongside the research centers of IBM, Oracle, Neusoft and more than 200 other leading technology players.
Designed by renowned Spanish architectural firm IDOM, the impressive new campus makes for a fitting facility to host CEIBS EMBA programme and Executive Education courses held in China’s capital city. Each year, the CEIBS Beijing campus graduates over 260 EMBA students and nearly 3000 Executive Education participants. The campus is also a central meeting point for CEIBS alumni as Beijing is home to CEIBS’ second-largest alumni chapter (after Shanghai) with 1800 members.
The construction of CEIBS Beijing Campus is in compliance with the long-term strategic development plan of the China Europe International Business School. The campus plays an important role in the following aspects: facilitating the school’s contact and communication with China’s central government, accelerating CEIBS’ development into an important think tank, extending high -- end business management education in North China, training senior management, strengthening the school’s research capability in management theories, practices and methodologies, and increasing the school’s competitiveness and influence.
The Beijing campus brings CEIBS a high-profile presence in China’s nexus of politics, academics and research, but also assists the school to maintain a rigorous pace of expansion. The new facility doubles the school’s total number of classroom seats. CEIBS already operates the largest Executive MBA Programme in the world, with nearly 800 students enrolling per year. The Beijing campus focuses on its EMBA and Executive Education programmes while CEIBS’ Shanghai campus also offers an MBA Programme.
Deep Roots in Beijing
CEIBS’ history in Beijing dates back even earlier than the school’s official launch in 1994, in Shanghai. The school’s predecessor, the China-EC Management Institute, operated in Beijing from 1984 to 1994, making CEIBS the first and longest running China-based business school in operation. Even after relocating to Shanghai in 1994, CEIBS classes resumed in Beijing as early as in 1996.
In addition to hosting the EMBA and Executive Education programmes in Beijing, the CEIBS Beijing campus has become a hub for the school’s alumni clubs, business forums, VIP speeches and class reunions. In particular, the campus is the venue for a number of high-level annual events hosted by CEIBS.
