The China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) is a joint venture for management education co-founded by the Chinese government and European Union (EU) in 1994, with Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the EFMD serving as its executive partners. CEIBS has campuses in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Accra in Ghana, and Zurich in Switzerland.

As China’s only business school to originate from government-level collaboration, CEIBS is committed to educating responsible leaders versed in “China Depth, Global Breadth” in line with its motto of “Conscientiousness, Innovation and Excellence”. Leaders from both China and the EU have lauded CEIBS as “a cradle of excellent executives” and “a role model of EU-China cooperation”. Renowned for its academic rigour, CEIBS is the first business school on the Chinese mainland to have been officially accredited by both EQUIS and AACSB, making it the first school in mainland China to receive this international accreditation and the only business school in Asia to have simultaneously made it to the top ranks of the Financial Times’ list of MBA and EMBA programmes.

The China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) is China’s number 1 internationally accredited business school and was named the #1 in Asia, Global Best Business School (2018) by Bloomberg Businessweek. CEIBS’ Global EMBA programme is the highest ranked stand-alone programme in the Financial Times’ 2018 global rankings.
