30 years in China

UBC’s China Programs began in 1980 with a strategic partnership with Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Since that time, we have built a strong presence in China by developing academic links with leading universities and forging partnerships with key Chinese business and government enterprises. Over 500 senior Chinese officials have attended executive development programs at the Sauder School of Business at UBC, including such dignitaries as  Mr. Shi Guangsheng, former Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation, and Mr. Sun Zhenyu, Chinese Ambassador to the World Trade Organization.

Students complete the program by December of their second year. Graduates will receive an International Master of Business Administration (IMBA) degree from UBC. Graduates may attend a completion ceremony in Shanghai organized by UBC and SJTU and a convocation ceremony at UBC in Vancouver in May.
