Focus on: China

Safeguarding and developing opportunities for UK Business Schools

Safeguard and develop student recruitment and other interests in China

The latest in our Focus On series, this workshop will be an ideal opportunity for business school staff to explore how to protect and build on existing interests in China, especially for those responsible for international strategy and student recruitment.

For many UK business schools China is already an established and valuable market, but one which is constantly changing. This workshop will examine trends such as the increasing attractiveness and prestige of business schools within China and worldwide, and how these can be incorporated into business schools' international strategies.

This workshop will include:

  • Presentations from the British Council and the China-Britain Business Council to provide the latest information on maintaining student recruitment and business partnerships
  • Case studies from business schools on their work in China
  • Discussion on predicted trends and developments in the Chinese market
  • Opportunities to network and share common problems and best practice
