Formed in 2006, XJTLU is a joint venture of Xi’an Jiaotong University in China and the University of Liverpool in the UK. As an independent Sino-foreign cooperative university, XJTLU captures the essence of both of its prestigious parents and is the first and only of its kind approved by the Ministry of Education.
The largest of XJTLU’s seven schools, IBSS, is growing in size and influence in pursuit of its vision to be a leading international business school. The school is based on strong principles of internationalism, innovation, inspiration and integrity to create a positive impact on society through teaching, research and business engagement. IBSS became the youngest business school to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in 2016, and again, the youngest school to receive EQUIS accreditation in 2018. In 2020, IBSS has received joint accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the Business Graduates Association (BGA). As a result, IBSS officially became the world’s 103rd triple accredited business school by AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA.
The five departments of IBSS are Accounting, Economics, Finance, Intelligent Operations and Marketing, and Strategic Management and Organizations with over 150 staff members and more than 4,000 students from over 60 different countries. Its diverse faculty include top researchers and experienced corporate professionals. With English as the language of instruction, IBSS delivers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs across all major business disciplines, including IMBA and PhD.
