China’s African relation
China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), based in Shanghai and jointly established by the Chinese government and the European Commission in 1994, has announced plans to open its first campus outside China. Accra, Ghana’s capital city, is the venue for the new campus, which has received the official blessing of Ghana’s education ministry. The campus will focus on executive-education courses, with the planned flagship programme being an executive MBA in business innovation, taught entirely in English, taking place in ten eight-day sessions spread out over 22 months. Classes will meet every two-and-a-half months, with the inaugural session planned for March 2009. Kwaku Atuahene-Gima, a Ghanaian native and director of CEIBS’s Centre for Marketing and Innovation, has been named executive director of the school’s African operations.
