The Inbound MBAs from 23 partner schools will join their CEIBS counterparts for the fall term of the full-time 18-month programme. At the same time, 76 CEIBS MBA students prepare to head in the opposite direction for outbound exchange semesters with 27 overseas schools including Wharton, INSEAD, and London Business School.

During the Orientation Ceremony, MBA2019 Student Committee President Matthew Seresin, Associate Dean and MBA Programme Director Prof. Juan Antonio Fernandez, and Deputy Director of the MBA Programme Ms. Ma Ning welcomed the inbound exchange students with an overview of Chinese business, life in Shanghai,  the development of China's education system and CEIBS MBA Program.

Read on to get to know some of the new inbound MBAs and why they decided to come to CEIBS:


Susannah Wang: The Wharton School - University of Pennsylvania

"It's inevitable that whatever job you're doing, knowing Chinese and how China works is going to be very useful. Having spoken to a lot of Chinese students at Wharton about my exchange options, they all said you have to go to CEIBS. I'm looking forward to learning about finance in China, meeting my new classmates, and exploring Shanghai.”


Chizhou Chen: Tuck School of Business

"Over the past summer, I've been working in the investment banking healthcare group for Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York and GGV capital in Shanghai. I'm currently pursuing opportunities in venture capital in healthcare and chose CEIBS to improve my network in China.”


Sara Maria do Carvalhal Roque Loureiro: INSEAD

"I came to Shanghai 10 years ago and it's nice to come back again and see how much has changed. The main reasons I chose CEIBS for my exchange was to develop a deeper understanding of Chinese culture and what this looks like in one of the world's most dynamic cities.”


Toni Baldauf: London Business School

"After living in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Australia, I really wanted to immerse myself in Chinese culture. I knew I wanted to spend time studying in China, so CEIBS was an easy choice.”
