Dual MBA - ESADE and Guanghua

Two MBAs, two countries, one incredible experience

Our long-standing relationship with Peking University Guanghua School of Management has resulted in a fantastic opportunity for a select number of exceptional students: the chance to study in both Barcelona and Beijing at two of the world's best business schools. You will spend one year in each institution and graduate with two MBA qualifications.

 

  • Year 1

    The first year in Barcelona focuses on general management, on-site consultancy projects and Spanish language classes, taking full advantage of projects within the specific business labs.

  • Year 2

    The second year, taught on Guanghua’s campus in Beijing, covers core business practices and specialist China-focused subjects. Students will also be given the opportunity to learn Mandarin.

Why to choose the Dual MBA?

    Chinese perspectives.
