A few days ago, we signed an exchange collaboration agreement with one of the top business schools of China, Shanghai University MBA Center. Shanghai University (SHU), with almost 35,000 students and 2,800 faculty members, has almost all university disciplines and is one of the Project 211 universities in China.
Navigated by its Mission, Vision and Value, SHU’s strategic goal is to become a global top-tier comprehensive research university with its clear uniqueness. SHU is jointly built by Shanghai municipal government and China’s Ministry of Education. It is especially strongly supported by the government of Shanghai, the economic capital of China, with a strong desire to transform it into a top global university which exemplifies the present and future status of Shanghai in the world. In 2016, SHU was ranked as the 4th university in Shanghai and Asia Top 69 by QS Asian University Ranking.
Located in the heart of Shanghai, SHU MBA combines internationally renowned education with forward-looking courses in line with the City´s latest developments in business, science, technology, and culture. SHU MBA is one of the largest MBAs delivered in English in Mainland China and is leading in Global-Local and Whole-Person management education; as a result graduates have become part of multinational corporations and/or have started their own companies. Within 10 years, Shanghai University’s Global Management Education Institute and MBA Center (SHU MBA) established a unique “SHU MBA Model”. This “SHU MBA Model” originates from the educational mission of SHU MBA, which is “To develop outstanding whole-person and Global Local talents people can trust and work with”. The university has established cooperative relationships with many universities abroad, with many notable scholars visiting as professors and honorary professors. Dean Axarloglou is one of the visiting professors of SHU MBA program. Currently the university enrolls more than 3,800 foreign students annually.
