INSEAD Partners with Johns Hopkins for Internationally Focused Dual-Degree Program
INSEAD, with campuses in France and Singapore, has partnered with Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) to launch a dual-degree masters program that will award graduates with an INSEAD MBA and a Master of Arts from SAIS, the Financial Times reported this week.
The new dual-degree program targets students who want to pursue a career combining international relations and business. The dual degree would “be especially valuable for those who seek management responsibilities in international corporations, financial institutions, economic and development institutions and government agencies,” INSEAD Dean Dipak Jain told the FT. As part of the new partnership between the schools, students will be able to complete the two degrees in two and a half years, instead of the three years it would take to complete the degrees separately, according to the FT.
Participating students can study on both of INSEAD’s campuses, in Fontainebleau, France, and Singapore, as well as at SAIS’s two campuses, in Washington, DC, and Bologna, Italy.
This most recent partnership is part of INSEAD’s continuing effort to build relationships outside the business school world. The school has also forged partnerships with Paris’s Sorbonne in the field of law and with the Art Center, a leading art and design college based in Pasadena, California.
Within the business school arena, INSEAD also has formal partnerships with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and Tsinghua in Beijing, as well as one of the top executive education schools, Fundação Dom Cabral in Brazil
