China: INTO, IBSS to expand English taught courses

Two international universities in China have announced additions to their portfolios of English taught courses as China’s appeal as a study destination continues to grow.

INTO-China's MBA and MBBS will be offered from September 2014 and IBBS's International MBA will begin in February next year

INTO-China with top ranked Nankai University will offer a six year undergraduate Medical MBBS and a two year MBA while The International Business School Suzhou (IBSS), part of the Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, is preparing to launch its International MBA.

IBBS will also host some 200 executives from companies including HSBC, Coca Cola, Standard Chartered Bank and BP later this week at its official international launch in a bid to build presence within the European, American and wider Asian markets.

“Our objective is to find students employment in China or get them an internship”

“We have done up a lot of facilities – a brand new architectural novelty that opened in August and redesigned the entrance to the business school but the key objective is to become more known outside of China and this international event might attract some attention,” professor Sarah Dixon, Dean of IBSS told The PIE News.

“Our objective is to find students employment in China or get them an internship.”

Real world business experience is also central to Nankai University’s MBA that allows all international students to study and go through an internship with an international or Chinese company based in the region.

“Having experienced an internship in Tianjin, graduating MBA students will have an unrivalled China skill-set that’s in demand from international companies,” said Jeremy Histon, Director of Marketing and Recruitment at INTO-Asia.

Designed to meet the global demand for qualified doctors, INTO adds that its World Health Organisation accredited International Medicine MBBS will prepare international students to progress directly into specialised medical training.

While the courses are taught in English, both institutions allow students to grow their language skills in Mandarin or other non-native languages.
