On April 12th at the French Embassy in Tokyo, ESSEC Business School, represented by Prof. Christian Koenig, Director of International Affairs, and Keio University, Faculty of Business and Commerce, represented by Dean Kengo Sakakibara, signed a Double Degree agreement. This new opportunity will apply to ESSEC Global BBA students.
Keio University has been a strategic partner of ESSEC for more than 30 years. Keio Business School is also a member of the Council on Business and Society, an alliance of business schools of excellence bringing together faculty and institutions to address the key international issues at the crossroads between business and society. Since 2012, ESSEC Global BBA students have been able to complete an academic exchange at Keio University and vice versa. In addition, a double degree agreement between ESSEC and the Keio Business School already exists for MSc in Management students.
This new Double Degree agreement with Keio University will enable the Global BBA students to better understand Japan’s business and economic environments. It will also allow Keio University students to complete two semesters in the Global BBA program, a four-year internationally-oriented training course. In particular, they will be able to deepen their knowledge of the European business context.
