Program Outline

The MA ChineseEuropean Economics and Business Studies (CEEBS) provides a springboard for a future career as a specialist or executive manager in Chinese-European oriented business, economics and politics.

The MA program takes two years in total. It begins in October and ends two years later when students present their Master’s Thesis. The program is divided into four semesters. The first two semesters are spent at Berlin School of Economics and Law. The third semester takes place at The Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in Chengdu, China. The fourth semester includes the writing of the Master’s Thesis. It can be studied in either location depending on the professor chosen to supervise the Master’s Thesis.

The MA program is taught entirely in English.


The MA program comprises three parts: the first part builds and extends expertise in International Business and Economics, the second focuses on Chinese-European Business and Economics, and the third is dedicated to Cultural Studies and Language Learning.

All core courses are given in a seminar style, using a wide range of case studies, presentations and discussions to provide an in-depth review of the material under consideration. All courses have continual assessment or end with an exam as specified in the examination regulations (e. g. written exam, assignment, presentation, oral exam). Course achievement is  documented and measured in credit points in line with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The entire program is worth 120 credit points.
