ESADE to Launch Dual MBA Program with Beijing’s Guanghua School of Management

esade_guanghuaLeading European business school ESADE has signed a new partnership with China’s Guanghua School of Management to offer a two-year dual MBA program beginning next fall, the school announced today. Participants will spend the first year of the new program studying on ESADE’s Barcelona campus and the second taking classes at Guanghua’s Peking University campus in Beijing.

The two institutions have been collaborating on academic projects for several years, including exchange programs for undergraduate and MBA students, international training programs for MSc students and a jointly organized conference featuring faculty from both schools.

The new dual program “confirms ESADE’s commitment to internationalization” and will help strengthen its programs for “executives who aspire to lead the global economy,” ESADE Director General Dr. Eugenia Bieto said in a statement. The institutions share similar program portfolios, similar faculty size and a commitment to innovation, he added.

The new dual MBA program will launch in September 2015. The first year will take place at ESADE’s Barcelona–Sant Cugat campus and will include courses covering general management, as well as on-site consultancy projects and Spanish language classes. The second year, at Peking University’s Guanghua School of Management campus in Beijing, will include courses covering core business practices as well as specialist China-focused subjects and the opportunity to learn Mandarin. Students will receive two MBA degrees, one from each institution, upon completion of the program.

Prospective applicants to the new ESADE-Guanghua Dual MBA program must have a solid academic record and two years of work experience, and they must complete admissions interviews with both institutions. The initial class will be comprised of the six most talented and promising candidates who apply.
