Course content

The MSc in Business, Economy and Society of Contemporary China is an innovative one-year full-time taught programme producing highly skilled graduates best placed to succeed in one of the world’s most dynamic, vibrant and rewarding countries. It has been created to meet the demand from industry and research for graduates who have in-depth knowledge of contemporary China.

The programme is open to both international students and those from the People’s Republic of China and will supply you with the tools you need to develop a rewarding career in a country poised to become the world's biggest economy.

Business decision making is a highly case sensitive process and requires a profound understanding of the environments in which a decision is taken. A successful business education not only teaches students the theories, but also teaches them where to apply them and in what circumstances.

A major advantage of this programme it that it provides total immersion in China while studying in English to the same rigorous high standards as The University of Nottingham in the UK.

The programme will develop students' understanding of the economy, business and work environment of contemporary China; give students first-hand experience of living in China; equip students with the theoretical and methodological skills to carry out successful business and management studies in contemporary China and produce graduates equipped with the intellectual and transferable skills to satisfy their career aspirations and provide a foundation for life-long learning.

Learn Chinese

You can choose to study Mandarin as optional modules, starting at the appropriate level for you – from beginner to advanced – depending on your prior study of the language. You will use what you have learned in a Chinese language and cultural setting.

Course structure

The programme will be offered full time over a period of 12 months with students studying 120 taught credits in relevant modules. Students will also have the choice of a 60 credit in-depth study of a chosen topic.

This course is administered by the School of Contemporary Chinese Studies, but students also take one core module from Nottingham University Business School China (NUBS), and are encouraged to take Mandarin from theLanguage Centre.
