The 18-month "World Executive MBA" will be taught across five continents

Spain's IESE Business School and China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) announced today that they would be launching a new joint Executive MBA program.

The EMBA program will be branded the "World Executive MBA" and will be aimed at senior business leaders who have responsibilities across national borders. It will be 18 months long and include a mix of in-class and online curriculum. The in-class modules will be delivered across five continents: The core modules will be offered in Shanghai, Barcelona, Shenzhen, and New York; various elective modules will take place in locations in India, Africa, Europe, North America, and South America.

Each residential session is eight days long and is followed by some five weeks of online projects, simulations, and other activities. No immediate details were available in terms of the actual curriculum.

Increasingly, western business schools are partnering with business schools in China to offer MBAs and other management programs. Last year, for instance, Switzerland's IMD Business School partnered with Cheung Kong Graduate School of Management to offer a Dual Executive MBA program. Likewise, Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration offers a dual-degree MBA/Master of Hospitality with CEIBS. 

In the past, CEIBS and IESE have partnered to offer various executive education programs, including a "Global CEO Programme for China" that the schools offer jointly with Harvard Business School.

CEIBS' and IESE's "World Executive MBA" program is set to launch in January 2016. To apply for the program, interested candidates should have at least ten years of work experience, including relevant managerial experience. Additionally, a bachelor's degree, as well as proficiency in English and good quantitative skills, are also required.

The program will be recruiting a diverse class. "To maximize the global scope of the program, participants will be strategically selected to represent a broad diversity of geographies, backgrounds, roles and sectors," according to a joint news release.

Applications should be submitted at least two months before the program begins.
