ESIC Business and Marketing School strengthens its position in MBA training with the launch of the first Double MBA degree of its kind in Europe and China
ESIC and Shanghai International Studies University MBA centre (SISU MBA) have crafted a unique and leading programme that combines the strengths of their MBAs. This has resulted in a pioneering MBA designed for businesswomen/men looking for a truly international and global business career that offers its graduates two strong degrees from two renowned institutions:
ESIC IMBA + SISU MBA
The International MBA was launched by ESIC over ten years ago as one of the first MBAs in Europe with a clear international approach targeting students from all around the world. Two years ago, a five months period in Shanghai was included to the programme in order to provide a focus on Emerging Markets especially on China. This clearly differentiated the programme and helped to position the renamed IMBA Europe & China among the top MBAs programmes worldwide and ESIC as one of the best business schools in Europe.
As a result, ESIC has been ranked 23rd in Europe in the “QS Global 200 Business Schools Report 2014-2015” and the International MBA was ranked 19th by America Economia in 2014; the programme is also positioned number one in the ranking of “Graduates employed within 3 months of graduation” and within the Top 10 of programmes with the highest “Return on Investment in 10 years” in the “QS ROI Report 2015”. In addition, SISU MBA received the 2014 Most Special MBA College award from QS and Tencent.com and was ranked within the Top Chinese Most Valuable MBA programmes in China by Guangming Daily Press, a renowned Chinese newspaper.
In this context, the double degree with Shanghai International Studies University, one of the China’s “100 key Universities for the 21st Century”, aims at strengthening the International MBA in order to reaffirm its position in the international academic scene. The International MBA Europe and China, that lasts one academic year, will help globally-focused professionals to acquire the insight, expertise, networks and multifaceted approaches to become successful executives and managers in tomorrow’s business environment.
