As part of a recent study trip to the UK, Part-Time International MBA (IMBA) students from the International Business School Suzhou (IBSS), Xi’an-Jiaotong Liverpool University (XJTLU) attended a networking event with partner MBA students and alumni from University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS).
The networking event developed closer ties between IBSS IMBA students and ULMS MBA students and alumni, helping to increase their understanding of working in international markets.
The Part-Time International MBA (IMBA) programme of the International Business School Suzhou (IBSS) at Xi’an-Jiaotong Liverpool University (XJTLU) is a programme for business executives in the southern Jiangsu region in East China. Students work in a variety of different sectors including manufacturing, pharmaceutical and biotechnology.
Director of the International MBA at International Business School Suzhou, Dr Nuno Camara said:“The visit to Liverpool is a highlight of the International MBA programme here at IBSS. Our executive students work for global companies and are keen to network with Liverpool-based students and local alumni, as well as getting to know the Liverpool campus and the city itself. The deep connection between our two programmes means that our students can exchange experiences with each other and really learn how business is viewed in different markets.”
Dr Dane Anderton, Director of ULMS MBA Programmes added: “It’s exciting to see our International MBA students from IBSS networking with Liverpool MBA students and alumni, sharing experiences and contacts together. Our Liverpool MBA students and alumni really enjoyed the event and benefited from developing closer ties with our Suzhou-based International MBA students.”
The UK continues to attract a lot of interest from business executives based in China, acting as a real stimulus for innovation and forward-thinking business practice because of its long and highly respected historical and cultural traditions. The International MBA programme at IBSS is very proud of its association with Liverpool and will continue to take students there to build cross-campus connections and bolster future cooperation.
