The Master of Business in China (MBCh) was designed for people who want to develop business in China. These people think global and they can find solutions in any situation and in any country of the world.
MBCh students have different backgrounds like business administration, engineering, humanities… All of them are willing to have training periods in different countries in other to learn by living and working on those countries. Participants on average have less than three years of professional experience and their average age is from 23 to 30 years. But the group includes executive students with large experience and age around 40.
We are looking for professionals with the desire to learn by doing, able to work in teams and able to find solutions to daily problems on companies facing the challenges of a global market. The heterogeneity of the participants (coming from Europe, America and Asia) generates diversity of opinions, ideas and approaches whose contrast is extremely dynamic and enriching.
The admission process is used to identify and select outstanding individuals for their willingness to learn as they share what they know, for their ability to integrate into teams and for their ability to identify alternatives and solutions to the complex challenges of a globalized world.

The Master is developed in blended format and has two tuition periods:
• A first period, face-to-face, takes place in China over 4 months (15 weeks from September to December).
• A second period (online) in which the student develops his business project for China. Optionally this tuition period can be carried in China.
The Master entails a 875 hour dedication for the student, 35 credits: 20 face-to-face credits and 15 online credits corresponding to the project development.
The methodology in the first tuition period combines lectures, visits to companies and socio-cultural activities hand in hand with Western and Chinese experts with extensive experience in the country.
In the second tuition period the student has to develop his business project for China (from his own country, or if he wants to from China, since in this period there are no face-to-face classes; the student develops his project on his own and has online tutorial support sessions).
The face-to-face class tuition period will be held over 15 weeks between September and December 2017. The student will have to plan its own trip in order to arrive at Beijing Airport on Sunday, the 3th of September and fly back from Hong Kong on Saturday, the 16th of December 2017.
After the face-to-face classroom tuition period, the student has 6 months to complete the project (business plan to China). This work can be done from his/her country or if he/she wants to, from the ESEUNE business incubator in Tianjin.
The working languages are Spanish and English (medium-high level required).
Our participants learn by doing. They face real business cases, and situations so that they learn how to solved problems. And it is from that experience and the need to solve real problems that our students better assimilate the contents of the MBCh.
Methodology consists of two learning processes: IN and OUT
Assimilation of knowledge, content, skills and tools by attending lectures given by ESEUNE professors coming from East and West.
Implementation of what was learned in real projects with the help of ESEUNE tutors. Thus, all the content and tools are oriented towards real practical application.
