Chinese Language and Culture for Business is a part-time, 40 weeks executive course at LSE. This is a flexible programme using blended learning approach so that busy Londoners can learn Chinese at their own pace, with their own schedule.
CIBL has been running group and one-to-one classes for companies since 2007. As a Confucius Institute for business, we understand that our clients have busy schedules and cannot always manage to travel to a third location to study. As such, we work with our clients to bring Chinese learning into the companies themselves.
