Program includes five international seminars and a consulting project

China's Tongji University's School of Economics and Management has teamed-up with ESCP Europe to launch a joint Executive MBA program.

The new cooperation will provide "a platform for oriental and European entrepreneurs to communicate and learn together," according to Tongji dean Huo Jiazhen.

The new EMBA can be completed in either 18 or 30 months, depending on the needs of each student. In either case, students take 9 core business courses, along with 9 electives. The program will also include an international consulting project, where participants will perform a strategic analysis of an issue faced by a company and then make recommendations.

Students who want a less robust experience can simply take the core courses over 12 months in the program's "general management programme" option.

Although the bulk of the new EMBA program will take place in Shanghai, it will also feature international modules in five other locations: Paris, Brussels, and Madrid, along with one location in the US and one in either China, Brazil, or India.

This isn't Tongji's first EMBA partnership with a European business school. In 2010, Tongji announced the launch of an EMBA program in partnership with Germany's Mannheim Business School. That program's modules are split between Shanghai and Mannheim; the EMBA can be completed in between 2.5 and 5 years.

The Tongji-ESCP EMBA is set to launch in January 2015. To apply for the program, interested candidates should have at least a bachelor's degree and five years of managerial work experience. Additionally, non-native English speakers will have to score at least 100 on the TOEFL or a band 8 score in the IELTS. As an alternative to the TOEFL and the IELTS, ESCP Europe also offers its own English proficiency test.
