Peter Nolan is Director of the Chinese Big Business Programme at Judge Business School, which organises regular meetings involving leading Chinese and international firms. The meetings are based on fieldwork conducted by Professor Nolan and his research team, both in China's leading indigenous firms and in many of the world's largest corporations.

Peter Nolan has for many years been closely involved with China's policy discussions about the integration of China with the global economy and business system. He spoke at a series of key meetings held in Beijing in 2000-01. These involved Chinese and international political and business leaders, who met in order to evaluate the impact of China joining the WTO. He has testified before the US Congress's US-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

In their January 2000 report on the China Big Business Programme, The Financial Times commented: "Peter Nolan knows more about Chinese companies and their international competition than anyone else on earth, including in China."
