China's Xiamen University Joins the OneMBA Consortium

Program will be the first English-language offering from the school

China's Xiamen University School of Management has joined the OneMBA consortium, according to OneMBA.

With the new member, the OneMBA consortium now includes five schools. The others include University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School, Mexico's EGADE Business School, Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV-EAESP) in Brazil, and Erasmus University's Rotterdam School of Management.

In the executive-level OneMBA program, students at partner schools come together for four week-long global residencies, each held at one school. Between the residencies, students attend core classes at their local partner school. During the core courses, students will be able to interact with students at other partner schools to complete projects. All courses take place in English.

The entire program takes 21 months to complete, although core curriculum schedules vary depending on which partner school a student enrolls in. For instance, students at UNC Kenan Flagler attend classes once a month on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, while students at RSM generally take classes about once every six weeks, from Wednesday afternoon until Saturday afternoon.

Xiamen University is in southeast China, on the coast directly across the Taiwan Strait from the island of Taiwan. While Xiamen already offers both an MBA program and executive MBA program, the OneMBA will be the first English-language program offered by the business school.

Xiamen is accredited by both AMBA and EQUIS.

The school is replacing the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) as the OneMBA partner school in Asia. CUHK has announced that the current cohort, which finishes in July, will be the final one for the school.
