Professors at CEIBS are uniquely equipped to deliver a combination of China Depth and Global Breadth in both teaching and research.

CEIBS has nearly 70 full-time faculty members, experts in five disciplines, represent more than 10 countries and regions worldwide. They bring a wealth of experience from teaching overseas, research and business practice.

Each year, the school also invites nearly 100 visiting faculty members from all over the world to share and exchange the most up-to-date knowledge from both in and outside China.

3) CEIBS has numerous campuses across China and the world.

The business school has campuses in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Accra in Ghana, and Zurich in Switzerland. CEIBS became the first business school in mainland China with its own campus when it established a facility in Shanghai’s Pudong district in 1994.

In 2013, the school opened Phase III of this main campus in Shanghai. The expansion doubled the size of the campus to a total floor area of approximately 84,000 square meters.

The Zurich Institute of Business Education (ZIBE) is CEIBS’ European base, located in Horgen right on the shore of Lake Zurich. The campus helps create the perfect mix of innovation and tradition.

4) CEIBS takes pride in its world-class facilities which are impressive, comfortable, and technologically advanced.

World-renowned architects Pei Cobb Freed and Partners designed CEIBS’ main Shanghai campus. The school’s architectural style combines Western architecture with the subtlety of Chinese beauty and grace.

Building designs maximise the shape and specific characteristics of the land available. The end result is an optimised open space with a heavy emphasis on transparency, reflection and light. A glass pyramid surrounds the CEIBS signature black-granite-floor indoor lake which is the focal point of CEIBS Shanghai Campus Phase III.

Wi-Fi is available in virtually all the rooms from the cafeteria to the 720-seat conference hall, providing students with an easily accessible high-speed connection to the school’s information network and databases.

5) CEIBS is one of the most cited researchers from Chinese Institutions.

CEIBS devotes time to the in-depth analysis of China’s business practices. Among the 2018 list of Most Cited Researchers from Chinese Institutions, 9 of the academics in the business, management and accounting category were from CEIBS.

This is the fifth consecutive year that CEIBS has featured prominently in this category, an indicator of the school’s research capabilities in these fields.
