Columbia Business School’s international executive MBA program is expanding into Asia. EMBA-Global, the partnership between Columbia and the London Business School, is expected to announce a new partnership with The University of Hong Kong.
The move will create the first executive MBA program that spans the financial capitals of America, Asia and Europe. Students will also have access to University of Hong Kong’s facilities in Shanghai, China.
The EMBA-Global Asia has been designed specifically for internationally-focused executives and managers who will be based primarily in Asia. The inaugural class will start in May 2009 with approximately 50 students. After completing an intensive, 20-month program, students will receive a joint MBA degree awarded by all three business schools. Most of the curriculum will be taught in Hong Kong, Shanghai and New York.
“The expansion of EMBA-Global to Asia furthers the Columbia Business School mission of bridging academic theory and real-world practice by connecting the world’s best business faculty with business leaders and students on a worldwide scale,” said Glenn Hubbard, dean of Columbia Business School.
