And explore the issues that matter in the world today and tomorrow.
Book yourself an exciting summer in historic Beijing, jaw-dropping Shanghai, vibrant Berlin, ancient Rome and / or idyllic Utrecht, and study at some of the best universities in China and Europe with the China Europe International Summer School.
The China Europe International Summer School offers a rigorous study programme in the fields of business and economics, government and society and international relations. Courses explore the main themes that define and challenge the world today, in particular in the context of the rise of China and Asia as a global power.
CEISS courses are delivered in a consortium formed by some of the most reputable universities in China and Europe: Fudan University (Shanghai, China), Peking University (Beijing, China), Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), Utrecht University (Netherlands) and Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Italy).
"The CEISS summer program provides you with valuable knowledge necessary if you want to deal with Chinese business partners or setting up a business in China. Further, the case method teaching method prepared me very well for my latter MBA program in China. The field trips opportunities together with great nightlife in one of the most vibrant, developed and rapidly growing cities in the world helped me to keep this intensive time very well balanced. In addition, you have possibility to spend time with your professors outside of classes and engage in brainstorming of your own business ideas.
"The 'Entrepreneurship and Innovation' course at Fudan was well structured and challenging especially for me as an engineer as the teaching, content and assessment style was very different, so I learnt a lot. The enthusiastic Professors brought real examples to explain the theory and used relevant Harvard business cases to see the broad range of success and failure stories of start-ups in China. The timing of the course meant I had enough time to prepare for class, generate our start up business model and enjoy Shanghai when class ended.
"During my time in Shanghai I participated in the China-Europe Summer School for a total of two weeks. It is a decision I absolutely haven’t come to regret. When you’re in Shanghai with the CEISS you can make the most of your time through both the academic programme and organised excursions. This gave me the chance to visit more museums, a famous water-town in the outskirts of Shanghai and even the Dutch Consulate-General.
"When I came to Shanghai I did not really know what to expect, but it turned out to be an amazing summer! I took two courses at the CEISS/Fudan University, and both gave me an interesting insight into the Chinese culture. For supply chain management we had a Chinese teacher with an incredible background, as he had worked for many successful multinational companies. It was an honor to be in his class, because he shared many real-life examples with us. I also learnt much about the Chinese business climate, which came in handy when I bargained on one of the many markets in the centre of Shanghai.
"Wow! CEISS at Fudan University in Shanghai was a total amazing experience. From the first contact during the application till the departure the staff from Edvanced International was super friendly and helpful. The handbook before the arrival but also the pick up from the airport and the lectures and social program was well organized.
"Learning a new culture, overcoming the language barrier, tasting different food and finding beauty in the contrast of modernity with ancient civilization are all things you will experience when coming to the China Europe International Summer School at Fudan. The knowledge you get here goes beyond the classroom, it is a life anecdote you will be telling your kids, that you would also want them to experience by themselves.
