Director of the International MBA at International Business School Suzhou, Dr Nuno Camara said: “The visit to Liverpool is one of the highlights of the International MBA programme here at IBSS. Our students work for global companies and are keen to network with Liverpool-based MBA students, as well as getting to know the Liverpool campus and the city itself. Visiting companies in the UK is also an excellent way to enrich our IMBA students’ knowledge and experience of how business operates in different markets.”

The UK attracts 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 continues to build cross-campus connections and bolster future cooperation.
