“We believe that business schools should stay closely connected to businesses. We continuously explore opportunities to create talent management partnerships to both local and international enterprises. This helps us understand what real businesses are in need of. ”

As a result, University of Manchester China Centre is going to a launch short-term Executive Development Programme in February 2017 on Negotiation Skills, a two-day programme designed for executives that need to negotiate across border and cultures. It will help the delegate to understand and manage cultural differences as well as helping to develop negotiation and persuasion strategies across different cultures. We hope the new programme in addition to our current offering - Global MBA will help companies and individuals achieve purpose for personal and organisational development.
