CEIBS Pre-MBA Boot Camp

Now going into its ninth year, the CEIBS Pre-MBA Boot Camp is the ideal programme to let you “get your toes wet” before you take the plunge. As part of an elite group of participants, you will have a unique opportunity to come to Shanghai for one week to live and experience China and the CEIBS MBA to the fullest.

For many students, the decision to study an MBA in China means entering uncharted waters. The CEIBS Pre-MBA Boot Camp is a one stop destination to understand China both inside and outside of the classroom. The programme will expose you to our MBA curriculum with some of our most distinguished professors, as well as let you dive right into Shanghai life and China business, giving you a real feel of how things are done in this part of the world.

The programme is open to a limited number of Chinese and international applicants who are considering an MBA degree in the near future. You must be either currently enrolled or have graduated from an accredited undergraduate university programme anywhere in the world, preferably with a minimum of one year work experience.
