The China-based Sun Yat-sen University Lingnan (University) College has announced some new opportunities for its MBA students, through its partnership with MIT's Sloan School of Management.
Firstly, each July, Lingnan MBA students will have the opportunity to complete a study module at Sloan. During the trip they'll also be able to visit US-based enterprises. Additionally, four students per year will be selected to study at Sloan for half a year.
Additionally, MBA students will be recommended to apply to Sloan's Master of Science in Management Studies program. These students will study for a full year at MIT and receive an MBA from Lingnan and an MSMS from Sloan.
MIT - Sloan has a number of partnerships with business schools in China, through which the school offers master's programs and other resources. In 1996, MIT launched an International MBA program with the Fudan University School of Management in Shanghai.
Through a partnership with the School of Economics and Management at Tsinghua University in Beijing, MIT also runs a "China Lab," where students can do internships with Chinese firms, as well as the China Center for Financial Research (CCFR), which promotes research on the Chinese financial system and puts on networking events.
Sloan also runs the China Leaders for Global Operations program through a partnership with Shanghai Jiao Tong University and MIT's School of Engineering. Graduates of this program receive an MBA from MIT and a master's degree in engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong.
