MBA students attending the classes at various U.S. business schools will now get better International exposure.
A new partnership has been stitched between Lingnan (University) College at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, China, ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain, and the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce.
Under this new program, the students from the US Business School will be sent to study and live as a cohort in all the three institutions for a period ranging from 9 to 15 weeks.
They will be attending courses on global business strategies, challenges and practices. This will give them a better idea of how to do business in the European Union, China, and in the United States. The students will earn a Master’s degree in Global Commerce from the University of Virginia, a Masters in Global Strategic Management from ESADE and also an International Management certificate from Lingnan.
The 2018 class of 60 students from 15 different countries will benefit from this program that was initiated in 2016. This is an attempt by the business schools in the US to up its ante in what it offers for the students.
The standard MBA curriculum of the US business schools is seeing a huge revamp. The focus now is on global courses like Chinese economy and other financial markets.
