Singles’ Day, the largest online shopping frenzy in China, was not only a boon to online shops. E-commerce students in China have also made a large fortune from the surging businesses.

A vocational school in Yiwu, eastern China’s Zhejiang province, which specializes in training e-commerce talents, is known as the cradle for the world’s best online business operators, the school’s website shows.

“Nearly 95 percent of our students have worked part-time to aid their study, with their total income reaching 28 million yuan ($4 million) every year. A total of 1,800 students have started their own businesses, which generated 35 million yuan per year in total,” the website says.

The employment rate for undergraduates has surpassed 98 percent for multiple years, and the entrepreneurship rate has led the province for many years.

Pang Haisong, vice director of the school, said that to encourage entrepreneurship, students can take most courses for free, and their credit scores on Taobao are a criterion used to evaluate their academic performance.

The school promises students that their monthly income will surpass 10,000 yuan after graduation.

Their jobs cover the whole chain of e-commerce, including online shop owner, logistics, visual marketing, print models, and new media.

Hua Rong, a freshman born in 1999, runs a clothing shop on Taobao. Hua said her business has made 220,000 yuan over the last 30 days. Most of Hua’s after-class time is spent on receiving orders and packaging products.
