Part-time English MBA in Shanghai


teddysh

I am comparing Part-time MBA in Shanghai. I notice two program UBC-SJTU & HKU-FDU that offering classes in English. Not sure what is the difference between these two. Anyone can help?

UBC-SJTU is the join program between Canada UBC & Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Receive UBC degree.

What questions do you have about the programs?

The UBC/STJU program is taught by UBC faulty. There's a study trip to the UBC campus in Vancouver - and the rest is designed around short modules.

The faculty in the Fudan/HKU program will be more locally-drawn. This one also has a more diverse set of electives, including courses in luxury, entrepreneurship, and skill-based ones like negotiation.

Fudan also offers their standard MBA in a part-time format (with classes on Friday and Saturday.) Might be worth looking into.

Is also an EMBA program an option for you? Then, the CEIBS EMBA (www.ceibs.edu/emba) or the Mannheim & Tongji EMBA (www.mannheim-tongji.com) may also be interesting for you.

I checked, UBC also offer elective courses like entrepreneurship, leadership or negotiation. So courses difference is not what I am asking. I would like to know more about something you won't find on the website like alumni network, learning environment, value of the degree, etc. or simply what you think about it.

However, my dad did recommend "north American" school for it's reputation or standard and recognition. So my top choice is UBC/SJTU program. But I know more go to Fudan/HKU program, so just wondering what is the difference.

Thank you. However, I prefer "actual" learning, not just concept or network.

In English? I know SJTU also offer FT MBA in English. But the opportunity cost for FT MBA is too high for me.

I am working in Shanghai therefore it has to be part-time and in English, prefer taught by English Speaking professor. No offense, just preference.

Hi Teddysh

Could I check with you, so in the end which part time MBA did you go for? I am also considering the UBC SJTU IMBA option...but am not sure. Any advice?

Would love to hear advice from others on this International MBA programme in Shanghai as well. Thank you!

UBC IMBA is the only program in Shanghai that is truly 100% UBC. It's also 100% in English. I did not consider Fudan because its not 100% HKU faculty or in English. I would have some difficulty if it's in Chinese. UBC IMBA offered 100% UBC Faculty, modules are same as FT MBA in Canada. We met a lot of students and alumni from CANADA too. The alumni group is very diversified, like our classmates.

Besides, the reputation, ranking and classmates quality is better with UBC. The study trip to Vancouver was unbeatable.

At the end, I still prefer a degree from North America because I work in a multinational company, HQ in US. Therefore UBC degree is more recognized.

Anyway, I enjoy the class and learn a lots from these good quality classmates.

I don't know what is your need or what you are looking for. I think it's better to obtain all necessary information from all interested program. Attending their events to know their candidates or alumni to receive feedback. Than pick the one that is most suitable for you.
