Peking University HSBC Business School (PHBS) is located in Shenzhen, as part of PKU Shenzhen Graduate School. Almost half of our faculty members are international and all of them have overseas experience. All classes are taught in English. PHBS also operates two dual degree programs with Chinese University of Hong Kong and National University of Singapore.
Peking University HSBC Business School was founded in 2002 as Peking University Shenzhen Business School with the intent of advancing PKU’s involvement in global finance research and establishing a first-tier business graduate program in southern mainland China. PHBS enrolled its first class in 2004, and began accepting international students in 2009. Since then, the school has expanded to offer Full-Time Master’s programs, Dual-Master’s programs with several partner universities, an Executive MBA program, and numerous Executive Development programs.
On August 30th 2008, HSBC recognized the significant potential of the business school and awarded the school with a 150 million Renminbi grant. As a symbol of appreciation for HSBC’s generosity, the school officially changed its name to Peking University HSBC Business School.
In September 2011 HSBC Business School passed the EFMD EPAS Accreditation process for the Master of Economics program. The school also began the AACSB accreditation process in October 2008, and is on track to complete the accreditation process in 2014.
Currently PHBS enrolls over 800 Master degree students, over 100 MBA students, more than 350 EMBA, and oversees 1,000 EDP professionals. The school strives to provide a comprehensive, transnational educational experience, and is constantly expanding upon the research and international exchange opportunities for its students.
