The well-designed DBIC course was integrated into the general electives for the MBS Global MBA programme, and is now one of the most popular courses for students from all over the world. The one week course prepares executive students about Chinese business culture today, together with the political system and its influences on overall business environment.Working closely with ACEM DBIC team, the MBS China centre team has received very positive feedback from overseas students coming from a wide variety of countries. “Doing Business in China” has enhanced the reputation of both ACEM and MBS and set up a role model for international cooperation.
