Who We Are
What We Do
MCBS is a business-focused Chinese society. Other than our main annual event, our activities revolve around campus workshops with an emphasis on employment, academics and entrepreneurship with our partners and wide range of different activities.
We pride ourselves working alongside with
various universities, companies as well as government institutions both in the U.K. and China. Also, we often
organise activities and annual conference each year that aims to promote social and economic Sino-UK
cooperation on a state level.
University of Manchester Chinese Business Society
The society commits itself to improve the employment rates of international students.
The society hopes to inspire and nurture early-stage entrepreneurs and help to launch good Chinese business ideas to the UK market, or British business ideas to the Chinese market, thus facilitating China’s rejuvenation process and contribute to the construction of an innovative and entrepreneurial economy.
The society aims to consolidate the academic foundation of students, and to introduce good academic and career opportunities to the most talented students.
MCBS as a whole is making a united and persistent effort in building a global platform where academic opinions and business knowledge are shared and discussed, and therefore to inspire younger generation to resolve some, if not all of the most puzzling challenges in the future.
The President of MCBS,
The Manchester Chinese Business Society (MCBS) takes the responsibility to build a professional and motivated Chinese profile on the international stage through business activities, cultural and academic exchanges. We welcome other student-led societies with the same ambitions to work with us.
Since its establishment in 2014, MCBS has positively influenced over 10,000 Chinese students from the U.K. and China. The rapid growth of the society is mainly due to its well-structured management team and strong connections with industry and government. Our vision and mission always remind us the commitments we have to make to meet the future of China-UK relationship development, and to spread these values to a wider Chinese and British community.
