Meeting and working with international participants, interacting with a global Faculty, benefit from international major EMBA partnerships.
KEDGE’s campuses abroad surely give the school an international reach in terms of faculty, students, global network and image. KEDGE international exposure and implantation overseas expresses its capacity to train executives with an international ambition and with an international background. KEDGE established a premier campus in China (Shanghai), in partnership with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and is the only French MBA to be formally recognised by the Chinese Government.
It enables EMBA participants to interact both professionally and socially with participants from different cultures. Some seminars are delivered with European-based and Chinese-based cohorts all together. We ambition to motivate KEDGE cohorts to mix and network. Likewise, French-based EMBA participants visit their Chinese peers for another core course in Shanghai.
KEDGE has initiated collaboration with other universities and Executive MBAs in Europe: Frankfurt School of Finance & Management in Germany and SDA Bocconi School of Management in Italy.
“The international visit component of the KEDGE Executive MBA is one of the strongest and most substantial elements of this kind that accreditors have observed while assessing part time programmes.” AMBA Global MBA last assessment report.
