New business Master's gives a global perspective

FIVE leading business schools recently joined together to create a new global double-degree Master's program for recent graduates.

Through the M2M Program, students will be able to study at two of the five schools - HEC Paris for Europe, the Yale School of Management in the United States, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, FGV-EAESP Sao Paulo Business Administration School in Brazil, and the University of British Columbia in Canada.

They will graduate with two master's and gain both an advanced business education and the global perspective that comes from studying and living in two diverse countries in two years. They will also benefit from the career resources, networks and distinctive strengths of two leading business schools during their studies.

Even after gradation, they will continue to enjoy the rich alumni and career resources provided by the schools.

All five schools are members of the global network of advanced management, which aims to cultivate business leaders with an international perspective through multidimensional cooperation and innovation.

The M2M Program is an innovation expected to bring more advantages to students than other master's programs.

The difference in academic atmosphere between two schools and cultures will help build a solid foundation for students'international development.

Students from all over the world with different backgrounds and perspectives will also enrich their experiences in study and life, helping them establish a wide global network. The diverse choice of courses allows students to discover cross-area learning and research issues as well as improve their skills in the core fields of management.

David Bach, deputy dean of the Yale School of Management, said the program was an opportunity for young students.

No matter what kind of career path they choose, young business leaders would rapidly learn the skills needed in the globalized business market in these business schools, he said.
