International Business School Suzhou (IBSS) at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University 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, which together ensure that we have a positive impact on society through our teaching, research and business engagement. In that pursuit, IBSS became the youngest business school to be accredited from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) in 2016, and again, the youngest School to receive EQUIS accreditation in 2018.

IBSS delivers a range of undergraduate, postgraduate, MBA, PhD and Executive Education programmes in the fields of Economics, Management, Accounting and Finance. Undergraduate programmes in Economics include both the widely popular BSc in Economics and BSc in Economics & Finance, whereas Master's programmes include MSc in Economics & Finance and MSc in Business Analytics. The Economics Division in IBSS initiated the university-wide Research Institute for Economic Integration (RIEI), which is a platform for research focused on the integration between and within Asian economies, Europe and the Pacific.

IBSS currently has more than 90 academic staff and more than 2,500 students, and is growing every year. As it continues to expand, IBSS now seeks to appoint further academic leaders and this, in turn, offers an exhilarating opportunity for academics from around the world to play a part in leading this unique institution's academic growth.
