Encouraged by China's continuing economic growth, leaders of professional service firms and practices are positioning their firms to take advantage of opportunities to expand their businesses. But as the number of players increases, companies must compete more intensely for talent and clients and are under pressure to deliver clear value to both. In this HBS Executive Education program, offered in partnership with the School of Management, Fudan University in Shanghai, firm leaders will enhance their ability to deliver excellent service, lead a growing team, and maintain high levels of profitability as they build a world-class company.
