In response to the ever-growing demand for quality business education at senior managerial level in mainland China, CUHK Business School introduced the Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) postgraduate degree program in Xian in cooperation with the School of Management, Xian Jiaotong University (XJTU) in 2004. This program is strategically positioned in Western China (Xian) to nurture managers who are actively participating in the development of Western China.
The recruitment for the new batch of the EMBA (Xian) Program has ended since May 2011. Any persons with interest in the CUHK EMBA program conducted in Mandarin, please refer to EMBA (Chinese Program).
The School of Management at Xian Jiaotong University, our partner in mainland China, contributes part of the teaching faculty and runs the program administration in China. A strategic alliance has also been formed with the School of Economics and Management at Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu, Sichuan and the College of Management at National Chiaotung University in Hsinchu, Taiwan. This alliance aims to create a platform for future academic exchanges and program development between CUHK and its partners.
