Spain’s Esade, Georgetown in the US and the Brazilian business school Fundaçao Getulio Vargas are launching a tripartite degree for executives working in European and US multi-nationals that have interests in Latin America. The one-year programme will be taught in Madrid, Washington DC and Rio de Janeiro and also in Shanghai.
The Corporate International Masters degree, as it is called, will award a corporate MBA from Esade, a Masters in International Business from Georgetown’s McDonough school of business and an executive masters degree from FGV. The first of the eight modules will begin in March 2013 and there will be online tutorials between each module. Completion of the degree will also require a thesis.
The new programme is building on the success of the Global Executive MBA run by Georgetown University - the McDonough school and the school of foreign service - and Esade. McDonough and Esade, which are both Jesuit universities, also run a three-week advanced management programme (AMP) together. The alliance typifies the growing trend of multi-school programmes for executives.
