For well over a century, the University of Cambridge has been enriched by its links with China. It was in 1888 that it established Britain's first professorship of Chinese, kindling a spirit of intellectual cooperation that has grown ever brighter. All the while, the University's profile within China has risen - thanks in part to eminent alumni such as Nobel Laureate Roger Tsien, novelist Louis Cha and Olympic table-tennis champion Deng Yaping.

In 2014, the School established the China Advisory Council composed of a small number of leading figures from the public and private sectors in China who have a pre-existing connection with CJBS or the University of Cambridge. It advises the School on its future engagement in China – a very important area in terms of students, faculty, executive education and academic focus.

Executive MBA and China

For five consecutive years, the Cambridge Executive MBA (EMBA) has visited China for their International Business Study Trip (IBST), which is a core course of the EMBA programme. Each year the class has met with local business leaders and government officials in China, and has visited domestic and international organisations to understand first-hand the varied responses to globalisation. As a result, the Cambridge EMBA has forged strong links with China and regularly attracts candidates, particularly those with an interest in entrepreneurship.
