CEIBS MBA Ranked #1 in Asia in FT’s Top MBAs for Entrepreneurship

July 2, 2018. Shanghai – CEIBS MBA is No. 1 in Asia again! This time in the Financial Times 2018 ranking of the top 50 MBAs for entrepreneurship. CEIBS is the only business school from mainland China to make it onto the top 50; the MBA was ranked #30, moving up 6 spots from last year. CEIBS MBA is also ranked #8 globally in the Financial Times’ 2018 ranking of global MBA programmes, which was released this January.

The Financial Times began ranking the world’s top 50 MBAs for Entrepreneurship in 2017, providing a barometer for how business schools and their alumni networks provide resources and support for MBA students’ ventures. “Guided by the needs of our students, CEIBS is dedicated to improving its programme in order to provide MBAs with robust guidance and support in entrepreneurship. As a result, the CEIBS MBA programme is very well recognised globally and demonstrates the viability and potential of China’s economic outlook,” said Associate Dean and MBA Director Professor Juan Fernandez.

The spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship continues to thrive at CEIBS. According to data from recent years, approximately 20 percent of CEIBS MBA students already have start-up experience when they enrol. In 2015, in order to support MBAs who have aspirations of launching their own ventures, CEIBS began offering an MBA concentration in entrepreneurship and also opened its venture capital backed eLab. MBAs can also explore both ‘China Depth and Global Breadth’ in entrepreneurship by joining overseas electives or China modules in locations such as Shenzhen, Tokyo (related story) and Virginia (related story) during the programme.  

China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) is among the top international business schools in Asia, where it is the only b-school to have simultaneously made it to the Financial Times’ top 30 list of MBA, EMBA and Executive Education programmes.

CEIBS has more than 20,000 alumni from more than 80 countries worldwide, and has provided a broad range of management programmes for more than 130,000 executives both at home and abroad. CEIBS’ faculty team is uniquely equipped to deliver a combination of China Depth and Global Breadth in both teaching and research.

CEIBS has campuses in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen Zurich and Accra.
