China Europe International Business School (CEIBS; simplified Chinese: 中欧国际工商学院; traditional Chinese: 中歐國際工商學院) is a top-ranked business school located in Shanghai, China.

Established under an agreement between the Chinese government and the European Commission in Shanghai in November 1994, CEIBS was the first business school in mainland China to offer a full-time MBA, an Executive MBA and a wide range of Executive Development programs. All three programs are ranked in the world's Top 30 by the Financial Times. In 2012, CEIBS began offering a part-time MBA in Finance and coordinated with IESE Business School to launch a PhD Program. By the end of 2014, CEIBS has graduated more than 15,000 MBA and EMBA students, and provided management training for over 100,000 executives.

The school's predecessor, the China-EC Management Institute (CEMI), was launched in Beijing in 1984. After CEIBS was formally established in 1994 in Beijing in collaboration with its partners European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, it later moved to Minhang in Shanghai. Today, CEIBS has its main campus in Shanghai's Pudong district. It also has a campus in Beijing as well as facilities in Shenzhen and Accra, Ghana.

CEIBS has developed one of the top MBA programs in Asia and it is ranked 17th in the world, according to the Financial Times (2015 edition).[1] In 2009, CEIBS became the first Chinese business school to make the world's Top 10 MBA ranking compiled by the FT.[2] Its EMBA program, ranked 10th worldwide by the same publication in 2014,[3] is the largest in the world, topping 700 students in Shanghai, Beijing, and Shenzhen. The school also trains about 10,000 students through CEIBS’ short-term executive programs each year.

Establishing its first campus in 1994 in Shanghai’s Pudong district made CEIBS the first business school in mainland China with its own campus, designed by Henry N. Cobb and Ian Bader of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners. In 2011, CEIBS began the 18-month construction of Phase 3 of the Shanghai Campus which doubled its size to 7.5 million square meters.

CEIBS opened its Beijing campus on April 24, 2010, within Beijing’s Zhongguangcun Software Park alongside the research centers of IBM, Oracle, Neusoft and more than 200 other leading technology companies. It effectively doubled the school’s total number of classroom seats.

Designed by the Spanish architectural firm IDOM, the Beijing campus hosts CEIBS EMBA program and executive education courses. Each year, the CEIBS Beijing campus graduates almost 300 EMBA students and nearly 3,000 executive education participants. The campus is also a central meeting point for CEIBS alumni as Beijing is home to CEIBS’ second-largest alumni chapter (after Shanghai).

In May 2009 CEIBS started an EMBA program in Ghana, being the first Asian business school to do so in Africa.[4] CEIBS was also the first Asian business school, and one of the very few around the globe, to become carbon neutral in 2011.[5]

It was announced in November 2015 that CEIBS had acquired the Lorange Institute of Business of Zurich for 16.5 million francs, with plans to train over 200 Chinese managers per month through the new school branch.[6]

80% of the overseas students who graduate from China Europe International Business School establish residence and work in the Asia-Pacific region.[7]
