GMAC Launches ‘Study in China’ Initiative in Partnership with 11 Business Schools


The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) has launched a “Study in China” initiative in partnership with 11 leading business schools in the country.

International students will be able to use the online portal www.studyinchinamba.com to find out more about studying and living in China and exploring opportunities to pursue higher education in business-related fields, GMAC said in a press release.

The English-language website, launched on June 22, connects prospective students with partner business schools and offers access to information to help find the perfect fit for their China education experience.

GMAC’s gateway guides international applicants from these Belt and Road regions in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe through the necessary steps to begin a new learning experience. It offers in-depth information and insider advice on the schools and programs available, including international program structure, syllabus overview, admission requirements, application times, campus facilities, scholarships and financial aid. Students can also opt-in to conveniently contact the schools for further detail via GMAC’s one-stop portal.

To offer a glimpse into the great opportunities available, GMAC is organizing a “Study in China” contest from June 22 to August 31. Participants will have to submit short essays about why they want to study in China to win a round-trip to China. Three selected winners will be awarded return economy flights and campus accommodation to visit preferred business schools and enjoy a first-hand experience of the school and campus life.

The new initiative partners with China’s most prestigious business schools located in Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. The institutions include Antai College of Economics and Management, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and China Europe International Business School.

The CUHK Business School, The Chinese University of Hong Kong; School of Management, Fudan University; HKUST Business School, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; Guanghua School of Management, Peking University figure in the list.

This “Study in China” initiative, according to Chowfla, intends to further raise the profile of business schools in China and showcase the value of business education to international candidates.

It also includes the Business School, Renmin University of China, School of Economics and Management, Tsinghua University, BiMBA Business School of the National School of Development, Peking University, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business and HKBU School of Business, Hong Kong Baptist University.

“This will effectively connect international talent with the right opportunities to excel at China’s leading business schools and programs while offering students all around support during the study abroad period,” GMAC President and CEO Sangeet Chowfla said.

He emphasized GMAC’s observations over the past few years that China holds the potential “to become one of the most popular study destinations.”
