About Location

SEU is located in Nanjing, China at the lower reaches of the Yangtze River (the third longest river in the world). Nanjing, an ancient capital city for 10 dynasties in history, is now the provincial capital of Jiangsu, one of the most developed provinces across China where more than 1/3 of the world’s top 500 multinational corporations have set up about 700 subsidiaries. The well-developed highway, railway, and airway system makes the transportation to other parts of China and the world very convenient.

Features of the Program

The English-taught Program in International Business is structured as a two-year master’s program consisting of courses, seminars and tour studies for international students. The objective of the program is to provide the student with competence and tools to analyze, plan, and manage a global business while facing different markets, business practices and political/legal, economic and cultural environments.

Part of the courses and seminars are designed to expose the student to typical issues involved in doing business in China or with Chinese firms; the tour studies provide the chance for the student to see the developed and underdeveloped regions of China for his or her on-the-site investigation or study on such issue as regional development disparity.

The faculty enjoys a close partnership with the local business and governments and comprises experienced overseas visiting professors.
