New Master Programmes: China Business and Economics & Chinese and Economics

06.07.2012 - (idw) Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg

The Department of Chinese Studies in the Institute of Cultural Studies in close cooperation with the Economic Department of Würzburg University is introducing two new master programmes dedicated to Chinas economy. Thirty years ago the world was amazed when China entered a path of reforming and opening up its socialist economy. Twenty years ago China started to establish a socialist market economy. About ten years ago China entered the World Trade Organisation. Today, after 30 years of impressive economic development, the world acknowledges the great importance of China for the global economy and is debating its potential to become the leading economic power in the 21st century.

In reaction to this, the Department of Chinese Studies in the Institute of Cultural Studies in close cooperation with the Economic Department of Würzburg University is introducing two new master programmes dedicated to Chinas economy. As a unique feature, both programmes are non-consecutive, meaning that they offer the chance to specialize in Chinas economy to students holding different bachelor degrees.

The master programme China Business and Economics (M.Sc.) is targeted to students with a BA in Chinese Studies or similar educational background. The two-year programme (120 ECTS) includes courses in China business and economy, general economics and business administration (at B.A. and M.A. levels), advanced Chinese and Chinese studies. Teaching languages are German, English and Chinese.

The master programme Chinese and Economics (M.A.) is targeted to students with a BA in Economics/Business Administration or similar educational background. The two-year programme (120 ECTS) mainly consists of courses in China business and economy, Chinese language (starting at the beginners level), Chinese studies and advanced economic studies. In this programme one term is to be spent in China for language training at the Peking University. Teaching languages are English and Chinese (language classes).

Both programmes include modules which focus on national and international aspects of Chinas economy. Research oriented modules that discuss methodological aspects of economic research on China and case study analyses complete the curriculum.
