Please note that this programme is based in XJTLU's International Business School, Suzhou, and at the University of Liverpool London Campus.

The International Business School Suzhou (IBSS) at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) and the University of Liverpool Management School have collaborated to launch a brand new International MBA programme. This is a flexible part-time programme, delivered in English and is designed for working professionals with several years of management experience.

Programme overview

The IMBA is a two-year programme, with modules being taught on weekends at IBSS; one module will also be taught over an intensive week at University of Liverpool London Campus. Graduates will receive a UK International MBA degree granted by the University of Liverpool Management School, an AACSB-accredited school recognized as a world leader in management and leadership training, education and research.

IBSS’s IMBA programme aims to equip participants with a comprehensive theoretical and practical understanding of modern management in a global environment, along with an awareness of how organizations can function in dynamic environments marked by political, economic, social and technological fluidity. Participants will graduate with the core knowledge and essential skills to operate in an international business environment.

Programme modules taught by professors from XJTLU and the University of Liverpool will focus on such important issues as leadership development, strategic operations management, international human resource management and international marketing, among others. These modules will interweave with seminars, events with senior management from international and local companies, and other activities that will provide an integrated and concrete learning environment with strong links to the real world.

The learning experience is further enriched by simulations and case studies dealing with issues on the cutting edge of today’s business.
