Your Fellow Entrepreneurs – UK China Institue


All of our programs, from MBA, through PhD and DBA have a central focus on entrepreneurship.  This focus is reflected in the students body we teach, the professors who do the teaching and the institutions we meet along the way – global business schools, governments and industry giants.


China has a long history of entrepreneurship, dating back thousands of years.  It was with this in mind that we decided to make entrepreneurship the central focus of all of our programs.

Modern China too is characterised by a sense of entrepreneurship – global entrepreneurship.  Chinese businesses have come to dominate the domestic as well as global landscape and will continue to do so well into the future.  The UK China Institute hopes to play some small role in the evolution of the Chinese entrepreneur.


A principle reason for establishing our program across so many different countries, rather than just running it in one, was to provide the student with commercial opportunities across the globe.

The type of student undertaking any of our programs seeks to carve their own path, rather than being led and seeks opportunity over comfort.  Our global programs facilitate this through connections to entrepreneurial academic and commercial environments across several countries and continents.
