Campus life

CEIBS became the first business school in mainland China with its own campus when it established a facility in Shanghai’s Pudong district in 1994. In 2013, the school opened Phase III of this main campus in Shanghai. The expansion doubled the size of the campus to a total floor area of approximately 84,000 square metres. CEIBS also has campuses in Beijing, Shenzhen, Zurich and Accra (see details below).

CEIBS’ main Shanghai campus was designed by world-renowned architects Pei Cobb Freed and Partners; and the school’s architectural style combines Western architecture with the subtlety of Chinese beauty and grace. 

Sports facilities

The gymnasium offers an appealing two-level, air conditioned facility. Offering a broad range of fitness equipment, it accommodates both novice and experienced athletes with treadmills, stationary bicycles, and weight training equipment. Table tennis and basketball courts are also available at the gymnasium.
