Overview of education in china china education center

China education is the largest education system in the world. On June 2014, there were 9.39 million students taking the National Higher Education Entrance Examination (Gao Kao) in China. Investment in education accounts for about 4% of total GDP in China. In 1986, the Chinese government passed a compulsory education law, making nine years of education mandatory for all Chinese children. Today, the Ministry of Education estimates that 99.7 percent of the population area of the country has achieved universal nine-year basic education.

International students have enrolled in over 746 higher education institutions in China. China has a long history of providing education to international students studying in high schools and universities in China. Over the past few years, the number of international students who study abroad in China has significantly increased every year.

The higher education sector has growth as well. China is seeking to improve the quality of education through a major effort at curriculum reform. China has increased the proportion of its college-age population in higher education to over 20 percent now from 1.4 percent in 1978.

China has a consistent teacher development system. Teaching has historically been and remains today a highly respected profession in China. Teachers have strong preparation in their subject matter and prospective teachers spend a great deal of time observing the classrooms of experienced teachers, often in schools attached to their universities. Once teachers are employed in school, there is a system of induction and continuous professional development in which groups of teachers work together with master teachers on lesson plans and improvement.

Executive Development Program

Lead Across Business Functions

Program Materials

  1. Broaden your understanding of the roles, responsibilities and interactions of key functional business areas to give you greater confidence in managing them.
  2. Strengthen your ability to interpret and apply information from functional areas for sound, fully informed decision making.
  3. Deepen your insights into effective leadership and change management in your organization.
  4. Challenge yourself to explore new concepts and approaches for competing more aggressively in the global marketplace.

Special Features:

Financial Reporting Tutorial

Work one-on-one, side-by-side with a leading Kellogg faculty expert on financial reporting to “read,” understand and interpret the meaning behind a real-world financial report of your choosing — your company’s or perhaps a competitor’s. Participants consistently rate this enlightening exercise as one of the highlights of the three-week program.

Computer Simulations

Put your new knowledge and skills to the test in a safe environment before putting them into practice. In this program, you’ll augment your classroom coursework and group study assignments with computer simula¬tions that give you hands-on experience at applying the theory and principles you learned in actual case scenarios.

Leadership Coaching Package

If you would like to extend and deepen the impact of your EDP experience, Kellogg offers an optional leadership coaching program. Conducted during the program and after you return to your workplace, this highly personal program option complements the curriculum with advice, support and additional resources from your Kellogg coach. Onsite coaching sessions happen during the early mornings, lunchtimes or evenings. Post-program coaching takes place within a six-month period as scheduled conference calls.

A Dynamic Curriculum for Changing Times

The ever-evolving nature of business constantly challenges leaders with complex problems and unanticipated opportunities. With its finger on the pulse of business, Kellogg regularly augments this program’s curriculum to keep pace with the changing world. Recent topics have included the growth of the nanosecond culture, service marketing, competition in a networked economy and a variety of emerging issues in the global marketplace.

A Collaborative Learning Environment

Set in Kellogg’s culture of teamwork and collaboration, the Executive Development Program creates an interactive learning experience unavailable anywhere else. The instructional methodology stimulates new thinking and encourages you to re-examine and reformulate both your professional and personal goals and strategies.

Most evenings during the program, you’ll meet in small study groups with the guidance of a faculty member to work through case projects and problems for class discussion. Combined with the live-in learning environment, this emphasis on peer and faculty interaction intensifies the learning experience, promotes the informal exchange of ideas and fosters rewarding relationships that can last a lifetime.

The Kellogg faculty has developed teaching methods and a unique curriculum especially for the general manager. Our first order of business? To provide the tools, conceptual frameworks and metrics you need to navigate the general manager’s world.

The program curriculum explores the environment in which business operates, the key functional areas of management, the development and implementation of corporate and business unit strategy and the promotion of organizational learning. The faculty brings the classroom learning to life with hands-on exercises that demonstrate how a general manager applies the concepts in a holistic and integrated way.

Week 1: A strategic grounding in the fundamentals of business

Demystifying financial statements and reporting enables you to ask the right questions and talk numbers with confidence. You’ll examine the workings of financial statements and the conceptual underpinnings of corporate financial reports. You’ll learn strategies for evaluating and linking earnings and cash flows to value creation, develop a clearer understanding of corporate disclosures and nondisclosures and how companies take advantage of allowable income-increasing strategies.

You’ll become familiar with both the frame of reference used by financial officers and the challenges they encounter. You’ll explore cash-flow analysis, capital budgeting allocation decisions and capital structure analysis as well as models for evaluating investment alternatives and the ranking of investment projects.

Members of Kellogg’s world-renowned marketing faculty will share insights into how marketing is changing and how marketers must change with it. You’ll explore marketing-related challenges faced by mid- to senior-level executives and the concepts and tools required to improve operating results. This module assumes familiarity with basic marketing principles.

You’ll focus on the strategic role of operations in financial success, take a systemic view of organizations as collections of business flows and supply chains and identify key metrics for targeting improvement. This module also emphasizes the linkage of operational and financial flows as part of daily management and examines strategic capacity investment and operational hedging.

In this module you’ll examine how to create value and profit in a competitive environment by thinking strategically about the strengths and vulnerabilities of your operating units and companies. You’ll address the nature of your markets, the competition and rivalry within them and how to maximize your core competencies to grow the top line.

Week 2-3: Enhancing your leadership capabilities

Team building

Featuring engaging computer simulations, this module will boost your understanding of human behavior as you practice problem-solving skills and explore an array of topics in team building, emerging leadership challenges and the value of continuous learning within your organization.

Cross-cultural negotiations

You’ll learn basic business negotiation skills, practical frameworks for negotiating in a globalized marketplace and new ideas and techniques from the field of dispute resolution. Although you can use what you learn here in virtually any situation, this module emphasizes negotiation within organizations and group decision making.

Decision making

This highly interactive module will expose you to the challenges of decision making under risk. You’ll learn the most common decision-making pitfalls, how to identify biases in others and how to design groups to be more vigilant decision makers.

Authentic leadership

Yesterday’s people management model of apprenticeship, command and control no longer works. Coaching others to achieve success delivers much greater impact. In this module you’ll explore your unique leadership characteristics and learn how to maximize your personal leadership identity.

Building social capital and leading organizational change

Learn the theory and practical implications of social capital — who you know — and how to maximize your effectiveness through the relationships you build. In a computer simulation, you’ll practice leading change by applying concepts to gain buy-in and commitment.
