Sherry Fu talks about Manchester MBA as a truly Global programme for international talents
First established in1965 the University of Manchester’s MBA course hasbeen around for over half a century and boasts animpressive number of highly successful graduates,including the current Founding Director of theUniversity’s Shanghai Center, Sherry Fu.

“I was f irst tasked with setting up theUniversity’s Shanghai Centre back in 2008,” saysSherry. “At that time I was equipped only with anoffice, a laptop and some promotional materials fromthe University. We had to rent out classrooms fromother universities around Shanghai, but we workedhard to ensure that our students got the exact samelevel of education here as was available at our maincampus in Manchester. Since that day we’ve gone onto open our own education center, and have graduateda large number of students, myself included!”

As well as Shanghai, students on the MBAcourse also have the option to take electivecourses and core modules at the university’s otherinternational centers, including Hong Kong, Singapore,Sao Paolo, Dubai and, Manchester. In the long run thismeans that if a student’s company transfers them toanother country, they can continue doing their courseat a center more convenient to their new location.

Of course, quality control is a key point ofconcern for those looking to continue their studiesin China, and it’s something that the University ofManchester takes very seriously. “Everything wehave here is imported from the UK,” says Sherry.“We don’t recruit teachers locally, they’re all flownin from Manchester to give the necessary talks andworkshops. On top of that all of our exam papers,booklets, informational products and everything elseis shipped in from the UK,” says Sherry.“This costsus more than printing locally but it helps to ensurethat the educational experience our students receiveis identical to the one they’d receive at our maincampus.”

For those looking to show off their internationalexperience, The University of Manchester hasrecently partnered with Beijing’s Renmin University.This partnership, which comes just months afterChinese President Xi Jinping made his historic trip toManchester, allows MBA students the option to receivea joint-degree from a world class British university anda top Chinese university.

Since 2008, MBS has recruited more than 1,000students from more than 30 different countries andregions to study the Global part-time MBA at theShanghai Centre. Most are Chinese, and many arefrom Shanghai, Beijing and the Yangtze River Deltaregion. About 30% of students are expats who work orlive in China.“

We want our students to challenge authority, tothink hard, to think big and to think global,” said Fu.

A truly Global MBA
