China Europe International Business School (CEIBS; Chinese: 中欧国际工商学院) is a business school located in Shanghai, China.

Established under an agreement between the Chinese government and the European Commission in Shanghai in November 1994, CEIBS was the first business school in mainland China to offer a full-time MBA, an Executive MBA and a wide range of Executive Education programmes. CEIBS follows the European model of business schools.[1] Its MBA programme has consistently ranked amongst the best in the world.[2][3][4]

The school's predecessor, the China-EC Management Institute (CEMI), was launched in Beijing in 1984. After CEIBS was formally established in 1994 in collaboration with its partners European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, it later moved to Minhang in Shanghai.[when?][citation needed] In 1994, CEIBS opened its main campus in Shanghai's Pudong district.[citation needed]

In May 2009 CEIBS started an EMBA programme in Ghana, being the first Asian business school to start such a programme in Africa.[5] CEIBS was also the first Asian business school, and one of the very few around the globe, to become carbon neutral in 2011.[6] In 2009, CEIBS became the first Chinese business school to make the world's Top 10 MBA ranking compiled by the FT.[7]

In November 2015, CEIBS announced that it had acquired the Lorange Institute of Business of Zurich for 16.5 million Swiss francs, with plans to train over 200 Chinese managers per month.[8]


Established in 1994, the main campus of CEIBS in Shanghai's Pudong district was designed by Henry N. Cobb and Ian Bader of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and made CEIBS the first business school in mainland China with its own campus.[citation needed] In 2011, CEIBS began the 18-month construction of Phase 3 of the Shanghai campus which doubled its size to 7.5 million square meters.[citation needed]

CEIBS opened its Beijing campus on April 24, 2010, within Beijing's Zhonguangcun Software Park alongside the research centres of IBM, Oracle, Neusoft and more than 200 other leading technology companies. It effectively doubled the school's total number of classroom seats.[citation needed] Designed by the Spanish architectural firm IDOM, the Beijing campus hosts CEIBS EMBA programme and executive education courses. Each year, the CEIBS Beijing campus graduates almost 300 EMBA students and nearly 3,000 executive education participants. The campus is also a central meeting point for CEIBS alumni as Beijing is home to CEIBS’ second-largest alumni chapter (after Shanghai).[citation needed]


80% of the non-Chinese students who graduate from China Europe International Business School establish residence and work in the Asia-Pacific region.[9]
