Long considered a business management backwater, Kunming will soon have its first international-standard business management training courses next year.
Shanghai-based China Europe International Business School, aka CEIBS, will be launching its Business Development Certificate Programme in Kunming in 2009, according to the school.
Since its founding in 1994 with funds from the European Union and the Shanghai municipal government, CEIBS has become one of East Asia's top business management schools. Now it appears the school is taking a hard look beyond Shanghai to lesser-known but fast-developing urban centers in China.
With the Business Development Certificate Programme, CEIBS and program partner Frankfurt School of Finance and Management aim to train approximately 500 Chinese managers in the coming four years, with the first phase of the program beginning this year in Hefei, the dynamic capital of Anhui province.
Kunming and Harbin – capital of Heilongjiang province in China's northeast – will be the focus of the program's expansion in 2009.
The program is part of a two million Euro umbrella project funded by the EU, which also includes another program that provides scholarships for MBA students from China's less-developed regions.© Copyright 2005-2021 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
