Kellogg School of Management has announced the launch of a new joint EMBA program in conjunction with Peking University’s Guanghua School of Management, with a first intake due to commence classes in September 2014.

The 22-month program is to be based at Peking University’s Beijing and Shanghai campuses, but will also include classes at Kellogg School of Management in the Chicago area. As such, teaching on the program will come from both Kellogg and Guanghua faculty.

The move sees Peking University join Kellogg’s EMBA global network that already includes Canada’s Schulich School of Business, Germany’s Otto Beisheim School of Management WHU and the HKUST School of Business and Management in Hong Kong.

“Through our unique global EMBA network, which will now include Guanghua, we offer students a distinctive learning experience, preparing them to lead in the complex global economy,” said Sally Blount, dean of Kellogg School of Management in a press release.

EMBA with Peking University’s Guanghua aimed at both international and Chinese executives

This new collaboration is intended to appeal to international executives living or working in China who wish to better understand the nuances of Chinese business. It is also aimed at Chinese nationals looking to gain the skills required to succeed in a global management setting.

“The Guanghua-Kellogg EMBA joint degree stands for an education that is prestigious, relevant, and fundamentally international. Our new program pays tribute to Guanghua’s mission of developing truly global modern business leaders,” said the dean of Peking University’s Guanghua, Hongbin Cai.

Kellogg School of Management and Guanghua expect those applying to join the program’s first intake will have an existing eight to ten years of work experience under their belts. To make life easier for those who might have to travel long distances to participate in the classes, the program has been structured into a series of week-long segments.
