China Summer Programme

ChinaMed Business Program: management, business strategy and entrepreneurship in China


The ChinaMed Business Program (CMBP) selects up to 50 graduate students and dynamic future managers for a full-immersion training experience on doing business effectively  with China. 

CMBP offers a unique combination of crash courses – for a total of 250+ hours of lectures, company visits, business cases and soft mentoring – designed to equip a high-power group of prospective managers and entrepreneurs with strategic skills in the areas of business internationalization, cross-cultural management and creative entrepreneurship, with a focus on China and the Euro-Mediterranean region.

The 6th edition of CMBP is hosted by Peking University – ranked top-3 among universities in BRICS countries, according to QS BRICS University Rankings – and takes place across Beijing, Chongqing and Guangzhou (China) from July 12th to August 24th, 2018.

Regular tuition fees for the CMBP 2018 are set at  € 6,000. For all ESCP Europe students and prospective students (EU and non-EU) fees reduced to € 3,000 per person. All sessions are delivered in English.

Students benefit from:

F2F plenary sessions

All participants work together with the facilitator to discuss critical issues and share best practices, acquire new tools/ methodologies/insights, focus on specific key working areas, defining actionable plans.

Group projects

Participants work in sub-groups to enhance their teamwork capacity, deploy what has been learnt in plenary sessions, implement best practices and experiment new ones, develop entrepreneurial brand-building – guided by a mentor.

Business cases

Highly interactive learning environment in class through case study discussions and exercises, MBA-style methodology based on real business cases, group coaching at both group and individual level to boost skills, overcome gaps, stimulate innovation and deliver actionable plans.

Company visits

Cutting-edge Chinese and international companies open their doors for on-site learning activities and their HR managers get to know CMBP participants in person rather than through their CVs.

Informal personal coaching

Beijing, Chongqing and Guangzhou’s exuberant nightlife offers a perfect context to carry on discussing career visions and business ideas informally with faculty and guests.

Access to ESCP Europe career services

Holders of the CMBP certificate, officially released by Peking University at the end of the programme, may take part in the Career Fair organized by the Torino campus of ESCP Europe yearly.

This programme is ideal for:

  • University-level students and recent graduates
  • Existing/prospective ESCP Europe students
  • Those on work experience or a gap year
  • Anyone considering a career in management who is aware of China’s centrality to global business

The Curriculum

The CMBP curriculum has been especially developed by an international team of scholars of contemporary China together with European executive education specialists and China-based professionals. All faculty members are accomplished business executives, legal professionals and academics from some of the world’s best universities and most dynamic companies.

The programme aims to respond to the growing demand for highly-qualified profiles combining substantive competence on China and the Euro-Mediterranean region, good command of the basics of international business, and an entrepreneurial spirit free of naiveté.

The methodology employed by CMBP faculty is based on the principles of action learning, where teaching aims to develop knowledge, competences and attitudes that can quickly be operationalized in the business world.

Training sessions comprise formal lectures, team project work, case studies analyses, business model testing, start-up business plan simulations, and both formal and informal conversations with a variety of guests who have first-hand experience of entrepreneurship and management across China and the Euro-Mediterranean region. Company visits to some of China’s most innovative enterprises are arranged weekly.

A trademark of the CMBP is its faculty’s commitment to one-to-one soft mentoring: participants are encouraged to approach instructors and guests individually both during and after the programme for advice and networking tips.
