Course Description

The iMBA Program by Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE) and Webster University (Webster) was recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education (MOE) in 1996, which is one of the first international MBA programs recognized by MOE. The program aims at cultivating business leaders with a global perspective and cross-cultural management talent. The curriculum and teaching methods meet international standards. The courses and lectures are professional and cutting-edge, based on leading U.S. MBA programs. The program is conducted in small classes. Courses are thorough, given in 9-week semesters. Students have enough time to accumulate knowledge on weekly basis.


Being student centered, we adhere to the belief of life-long education. Students have a variety of overseas study tours and take part in international exchange trips, making this program unique from others. Students and alumni are the greatest asset of the business school, which is the reason our program provides opportunities for life-long education. Instructors at the iMBA Program are selected from both SUFE and Webster. High quality teaching and over 2300 outstanding graduates over the 24 years have made great contributions to economic and social development. We believe the iMBA program has been one of the most influential international MBA programs in China.
