Founded in 1898, Peking University was originally known as the Imperial University of Peking. It was the
first national university in China and was recognised by the British University Council in 1921. Since
its establishment, Peking University has been covering comprehensive disciplines and has continually
been a leading institution of higher education in China.
In 2004, Peking University HSBC Business School (PHBS) was established. Since then, it has grown rapidly
in reputation and is now a centre of international excellence in business education. With its engagement
and commitment towards internationalization, PHBS has set up two campuses; one in Shenzhen city in
China, and another at Boar’s Hill in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. Both campuses of PHBS are
representations of its academic excellence and offer our students world-class facilities.
PHBS is one of the most dynamic, innovative, and internationalised business schools in the world. Our
programmes focus on in-depth subject learning in finance, management and economics, with a Chinese focus
in context of a global perspective. PHBS has been accredited by AACSB and AMBA as one of the top 5% of
over 16,000 business schools in the world for its international excellence in academics, including both
teaching and research.
