SPECIAL PROGRAM OPENS TO GROOM THE “2ND GENERATION”
Shanghai Jiaotong University has launched a special business program catering to students from wealthy families who are expected to take over the reins of their family’s enterprises. The program by the overseas education college of Shanghai Jiaotong University will include cooperation with the United States Military Academy at West Point, Cambridge University, as well as business schools around Europe.
The courses cost about 129,000 RMB in China and about 212,500 RMB abroad. Most candidates, now working at the executive level in their family business, are aged between 25 and 30, with a bachelor’s or master’s degree. More than half of them have an overseas education background.
