New program will take 2 years to complete; students will study in both Barcelona and Beijing

Spain's ESADE Business and Law School and Peking University's Guanghua School of Management will launch a new dual MBA program next year, through a new partnership.

The program will take two years to complete. Students will spend the first year of the program on ESADE's Barcelona campus. For the second year, students will study in Beijing.

The schools are framing the new joint MBA as a way to get experience across several different cultures and economic environments. "Just as Barcelona is a gateway to understanding Europe and Latin American Business, Guanghua will welcome students to Beijing to experience the rapidly developing Chinese economic environment," according to a statement from ESADE.

The program will also allow students to gain some practical experience as well. In Barcelona, for instance, students will have the opportunity to engage in on-site consultancy projects and Spanish-language classes. In Beijing, they'll be able to pursue some China-specific curriculum as well as Mandarin-langauge classes.

In the past few years, several western business schools have announced partnerships with business schools in China to offer dual-degree business programs. Just last month, for instance, Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration announced that it would launch a dual-degree MBA/Master of Management in Hospitality with China's CEIBS Business School.

Likewise, in March, Switzerland's IMD Business School partnered with China's Cheung Kong Business School to offer a joint Executive MBA program.

Similarly, Guanghua offers dual-degree programs with a number of other business schools, including an MBA/Master of Management program offered in partnership with MIT - Sloan, and a dual MBA with the University of Washington's Foster School of Business.

The new ESADE-Guanghua program is set to launch in September 2015. To apply for the program, interested candidates should have at least two years of work experience, and will have to have interviews with staff at each school. A minimum GMAT score of 650 is also required.
