Executive programmes 


Nottingham University Business School China (NUBS China) runs both open-enrollment programmes and company-specific programmes which are programmes designed specifically for individual companies or a group of companies.

We focus on company-specific programmes as we feel this provides the best value for firms. A single person can’t change a firm, but with company-specific programmes we can design exactly what the firm needs and make impact. Our company-specific programmes are designed to meet the specific needs of individual firms. The NUBS China Executive Education is different from other providers in a number of ways:

Practically oriented  

We understand that time is money. Our programmes help to address real business issues that meet specific client aims. Our professors are grounded in the real world, drawing on work experience and consulting work, which they bring directly into the classroom.

Interactive teaching methodology

Our programmes use diverse interactive teaching methods like case studies, live cases, simulations, and role plays to maximise student engagement and knowledge retention while streamlining the learning process. We employ case studies that put our executive students in the shoes of managers faced with challenging decisions. This experiential learning process ensures that our students are able to implement what they’ve learned with greater effectiveness and confidence.  

A strong network

In addition to our own faculty who are permanently based in China, we also draw on our extensive contacts at other top business schools from around the world to teach in our programmes.  

A changing world, bringing results from cutting-edge research into the classroom

Firms and their executives should have the best and latest tools at their disposal to have the best chance of success. We bring results from our cutting-edge research in a practical fashion into the classroom. You will not only learn from textbooks, but from thought leaders who are creating the next management trends.  

International best practice adapted to Chinese reality

Our faculty, originating from over 20 countries around the world, bring broad perspective and experience into the classroom. They are devoted to studying which management practices and strategies work best in China. Thus, we offer the best of both worlds, knowledge about international best practice and knowledge about Chinese realities. Having both perspectives allows us to create highly impactful programmes.  

Making sure “implementation” .

We are not only concerned about delivering new knowledge, but making sure that what we teach is actually used in firms. We do this through a variety of practical techniques, making sure participants are absorbing knowledge, skills, and tools that can be implemented in the workplace.  

Opening your mind

Be inspired to think about solving your business problems in new innovative ways. One can outperform competitors by better executing the same strategy or by developing an innovative strategy that is different. We think the latter approach is easier to accomplish and work with clients to develop the skills needed to make it happen.
