CIBT Overall Enrolment Increase by 63% in 2003
CIBT School of Business & Technology Corp. (“CIBT”), a subsidiary of Capital Alliance Group Inc. (TSX-V:CPT) and a leading business school in China, reported today a total enrolment increase of 63% in 2003 as compared to same period last year.
Enrolment increases require significant growth in the English programs, MBA and Technology degree programs. CIBT’s total student body is currently at 1,064 students. This enrolment figure does not require new enrollments from the recently announced MBA program for Civil Aviation and Administration China (“CAAC”), sponsored by Boeing Corp. The first group of a total of approximately 200 MBA candidates participating in the CAAC/Boeing program started December 2003.
“Expanding foreign direct investments are fuelling China’s burgeoning economy and creating high demands for western trained management and workers,” stated Toby Chu, CIBT’s president and CEO. “As a premier business and technology school with nearly 10 years of operating experience in China, we anticipate that our business management programs, advanced technology and English language training programs will continue to be CIBT’s fastest growing segments in coming years.”
