Summer Course
ChinaMed Business Program

ChinaMed LogoThe ChinaMed Business Program offers a unique combination of crash courses – for a total of 200 hours of lectures, 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 internationalisation, cross-cultural management and creative entrepreneurship, with a focus on China and the Euro-Mediterranean region.

This full-time Summer course is promoted by the TOChina Hub (University of Torino, ESCP Business School and T.wai, the Torino World Affairs Institute) in partnership with Peking University.

CMBP selects up to 50 graduate students and dynamic future managers for full-immersion training which will equip them with advanced cross-cultural management tools to deal with China's business eco-system.
All sessions are delivered in English.

The 2020 edition was originally designed to take place in Beijing, Chongqing and Shenzhen, but due to the exceptional circumstances, caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, the program has been successfully delivered online.

Leveraging on the proposed improvement of the pandemic situation in summer 2021, the 9th edition is expected to see a return to in-person classes. Due to the continued restrictions concerning foreign entry to the People's Republic of China, in these exceptional circumstances, this year's program will take place in Europe.

The 2021 edition of CMBP will take place in Paris, Turin and Rome from July 19th to August 13th.

I applied to the CMBP for several reasons. As a Chinese studying in Europe, I want to know more about how international business work across different regions and discover new business opportunities. We had the chance to travel and study in different cities in China. It's a great opportunity to learn the diversity of China, which is really important for doing business in that country.
I am 100% recommending the ChinaMed Business Program if you are interested in international business and want to have an unforgettable experience

Curriculum

ChinaMed LogoThe ChinaMed Business Program 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 operationalised 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.

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.

The program is scheduled over four weeks, with classes normally running from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 12 pm and from 1.30 pm to 5.30 pm. The program will have both an online and offline schedule: one month before the start of the in-class program, the participants will receive propaedeutic materials in the form of video-recorded lectures, readings and exercises that will have to be completed as a preparation for the core modules, which will then be delivered in class.
