Dual MBA - ESADE & Guanghua

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, with a year in each institution, resulting in two MBA qualifications after graduation in the Chinese capital.

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

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