UCLA Anderson School of Management Partners with Chilean University to Offer Global EMBA
Joining the growing trend of leading business schools launching global executive MBA (EMBA) programs, UCLA Anderson School of Management will partner with a Chilean institution to establish its own dual-degree executive program, the Financial Times reported yesterday.
Joining forces with the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, Escuela de Negocios (UAI) in Chile, UCLA Anderson will now offer the UCLA-UAI Global Executive MBA program, which will feature modules taught in Miami; Los Angeles; Santiago, Chile; and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Participants in the program will be taught in English and will receive a degree from both institutions. The first module will start in April 2011 at the UAI Miami campus, and the 15-month program will include experiential learning and company visits, according to the FT.
UCLA Anderson is the latest in a string of leading business schools to launch global EMBA programs. Columbia Business School has partnered with London Business School and Hong Kong University Business School to offer its EMBA-Global Asia Program; NYU Stern, HEC School of Management in Paris and the London School of Economics have their Trium Global Executive Program; and Kellogg School of Management runs its own global EMBA program with HK UST Business School.
According to the FT report, UCLA Anderson views the launch of its global EMBA program as a strategic priority that will help its students take advantage of increasing opportunities in a burgeoning Brazil and in Latin America as a whole.
