Nurturing Global Talents – A tribute to 40 years’ reform and opening-up

To be awarded at the grand ceremony truly means a lot to us. It is a great hour being recognised for the hard work we have been carrying out for the past decade.” Said Ms. Fu.

Education in the New Era

Technology is revolutionising the way education is delivered. Knowledge is no longer restricted to be accessed in a physical classroom. As learners, we can access information and study wherever we go.  We now live in an era where access to information, knowledge has been made more friendly and accessible

The firm belief - “No barriers, No boundaries” is at the heart of everything The University of Manchester China Centre pursues. Students learning experience is structured around practicality, flexibility and genuine hands-on experience with a global outlook. The “blended- learning” approach has been successfully adopted across a selection of MBA programmes.

With the new addition to the portfolio of study options, the soon to be launched MSc International Healthcare Leadership (MSc IHL), tailored for healthcare professionals and those to venture into the industry also follows the same philosophy. To be launched at the same time in March 2019 with MSc IHL is the postgraduate programme in Project Management (MSc PM), which adopt a more flexible format with the majority of the content delivered fully online.
