Better education for a better life

In China, it is widely recognised that education offers the stepping-stone to a better life.

Ambow is a provider of personalised education and training services in China. The private educational services industry is a young, fragmented and defensive sector undergoing rapid structural change.

Founded in 2000, by Silicon Valley veteran Dr. Jin Huang, Ambow has built its school network both by partnering with existing schools and operating its own schools to provide education services that complement the national curriculum. For middle school students, Ambow offers the chance to gain a competitive edge in the race for university admission, while for students interested in vocational training, it focuses on developing skills to improve employment and career prospects.

Ambow listed on the New York Stock Exchange in August 2010.
