Following a fantastic launch in 2017, Highered has decided to establish an office in Shanghai to further support Chinese schools with international placement, and Chinese companies with Global talent sourcing.

The Highered service is provided to EFMD members and is the first truly global student recruitment platform to support students finding international placement at the world’s leading business schools.


With a portfolio of more than 650 top schools in one network, Highered gives unprecedented employer branding and recruitment marketing possibilities, and reach to a diverse and global student body at a low cost.


Leading companies like Nike, Yara International, PepsiCo, Geely, Accenture, and Statoil etc. that are leveraging Highered to recruit talent.


Following a very strong introduction year in 2017, Highered has decided to increase the commitment level to the Chinese market by establishing Highered China.


Highered China will be an on-the-ground team in China located in central Shanghai. The team in Shanghai will be supported by a Chinese advisory board and leveraged by resources from Highered’s headquarter in Oslo, Norway.


Tony Wang, Highered China comments:
“Highered is truly an innovator and embracing today´s globalized society. I’m thrilled to be part of this journey in building Highered China, supporting students around the world realizing their potential, Chinese schools with international placement opportunities and helping Chinese corporates to attract and retain global talent”.


“With a strong network of EFMD membership schools, 20% of the world’s international students, and a strong and ambitious business environment we see China as one of the most important markets in the world for Highered”. Gustaf S. Christensen, COO Highered.
