Launched in October 2015, CEIBS Talent Loan Program - Di Shui Quan, was initiated by CEIBS and is jointly run by the school along with alumni company Noah Holdings Ltd.

The name originates from an ancient Chinese saying about how modest sums of money can accumulate over time to become a powerful force, similar to tiny drops of water growing into a large lake. The goal is to ensure that qualified students do not miss out on the opportunity to benefit from the CEIBS MBA simply because they cannot afford the tuition.

The project will enable us to raise funds from the CEIBS community through donations or interest free loans, and provide low-interest rate loans to MBA students through a mobile and internet-based financial platform. Click here for the details.
