EMLYON Partners with Chinese School to Launch a Business Education Hub in Shanghai

An Executive MBA, along with various other master's-level business programs, to be offered

Shanghai, China

France's EMLYON Business School has partnered with the East China Normal University (ECNU) to open a new business education hub in Shanghai.

The new hub will be dubbed the "Asia-Europe Business School," and will launch in 2016. It's projected to host 1,500 students by 2020.

Programs to be offered at the new location include an Executive MBA, along with master's programs in quantitative finance, business analytics, international management and luxury and fashion. A 4-year bachelor's degree in business and Executive Masters programs will also be offered

EMLYON is the latest of a growing number of European business schools that are looking to China for growth. Earlier this year, for example, Spain's IESE Business School announced that it will launch a joint Executive MBA with China's CEIBS Business School in 2016. And last November, another French business school, Audencia Nantes, announced the launch of a dual-degree MBA program in partnership with the Beijing Institute of Technology, for instance.

Also last year, Switzerland's IMD Business School launched an EMBA program with the Beijing-based Cheung Kong Graduate School.

These partnerships are part of a growing trend, where western business schools are launching partnerships with Chinese schools to offer MBA programs.

EMLYON is accredited by AMBA, AACSB, and EQUIS. The school offers an International MBA program and an Executive MBA program on its home campus in Lyon. 

East China Normal University was originally founded in 1951 to train teachers. In 2012, the school partnered with New York University to launch NYU Shanghai, which is NYU's third degree-granting campus. ECNU does not offer any stand-alone MBA programs.

EMLYON has a long-standing relationship with ECNU: in 2007, EMLYON opened the "EMLYON Asia campus" on the ECNU campus.

No immediate details were available on the new EMLYON/ECNU Executive MBA program.
