Four leading European Business Schools have decided to move forward with a new cooperation project for their Master’s in Business and Management students: Copenhagen Business School, Denmark, ESSEC Business School, France, IE University, Spain and University of Mannheim Business School, Germany joined forces in order to enable their students to learn more about Europe, its politics and its corporate world.
The overall goal of the network is to accelerate Europe’s political and social unity as well its economic strength for the well-being of Europe and its people and to make use of the strengths of European diversity. The new exchange cooperation will be launched this spring so that interested students can apply for the EMT during the upcoming summer and autumn of 2021.
Next year, in August 2022, the first cohort will start their studies in Brussels with an introduction seminar. After getting to know each other and having learned more about the European institutions, Europe’s politics, history and societies, the students will head to their exchange campuses at the respective partner schools for the fall semester 2022.
Each School will offer a specific specialisation track in sought-after business subjects taught by top-notch researchers of their fields. Subjects represented will include topics such as International Finance, Sustainability in Governance and Investments, Entrepreneurship & Negotiations and Sourcing Excellence. A final get-together of students and professors including an exchange of newly generated ideas and learning results will form the capstone to the European Management Track before students graduate from their home schools. The institutions will award a joint programme certificate to each student.
"Our objectives with the European Management Track (EMT) are to encourage our students to mobility and cultural immersion across Europe. In addition to discovering a new part of Europe, the participants have the possibility to specialize in the expertise of each of the four participating institutions. The breadth of expertise covered by the EMT partner institutions is a particular strength of this new European collaboration", declares Felix Papier, Dean of Pre-Experience Programs at ESSEC Business School.
