Spain’s IESE Business School Partners with CEIBS to Train More Business School Professors
Last month, Barcelona’s IESE Business School announced a partnership with the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) that seeks to supply more business school professors for the fast-growing Asian MBA market, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
The new IESE-CEIBS doctoral program is set to launch in September and, the schools hope, will attract students from around the globe. The first two years of study will take place at IESE’s Barcelona campus as students work toward a Master of Research in Management. Students will spend the next three years at CEIBS in Shanghai working full-time on their theses. The program will be taught in English.
Africa Ariño, a strategic management professor and director of IESE’s Masters of Research in Management and Ph.D. programs, told the WSJ that the new program addresses a growing need for doctoral level management professors in China. Because China’s existing Ph.D. programs aren’t very strong, she expects demand for the new program to be great.
