Therefore, the school offers three unique specialization opportunities: an MBA, an EMBA and a DBA in Chinese Business. China’s economic growth over the past two decades has astonishingly outpaced existing models of economic thought. This economic performance has created massive needs for research, education and knowledge about the country.
