Manchester to Launch a Joint MBA with China's Renmin University School of Business

Graduates of the new joint program will receive an MBA from each school

Alliance Manchester Business School has announced that it will launch a joint MBA program with Renmin University of China.

Students in the new program will study mainly in Beijing, but they will also pursue a residential module either on Manchester's home campus in the UK, or in one of the school's international centers in Dubai, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, or Brazil.

The new program will launch in July 2017. Graduates will receive an MBA from each school.

No immediate details were available with regard to program length or admission requirements.

This is the second joint MBA program offered by Manchester. The school also offers a joint MBA with IU's Kelley School of Business, which takes two years to complete.

With the new partnership, Manchester becomes the latest member of a growing group of Western business schools that are developing partnerships with business schools in China.

In 2013, Renmin University of China gained AACSB accreditation, and its MBA program was this year ranked in the Global MBA ranking from The Financial Times. The school's EMBA was also ranked in the Executive MBA ranking from the Financial Times in 2013 and 2014, but dropped out of the ranking last year.

For more information, please see the Manchester news release announcing the launch of the new joint MBA.
