Global experience is must to succeed in global economy. To keep their students competitive in the new global economy, European business schools are setting up partnerships and satellite campuses in Asia and Middle-east. They are offering new courses in international business, providing foreign study and internship opportunities in places ranging from India and China to South Africa and USA.
INSEAD from France has campuses in Singapore and Abu Dhabi, where students can spend some or all of their time in MBA. HEC, again from France, has campus in Qatar. IESE from Spain has campus in New York.
A Large number of European business schools have established academic affiliations around the world. Rotterdam’s RSM Erasmus offers semester-long exchange programs with more than 100 leading B-schools in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Copenhagen Business School, in partnership with Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Kenan-Flagler Business School at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, has launched a program that begins in Copenhagen, then moves to Hong Kong and finishes at UNC.
London School of Business and Finance has campuses across London, Manchester, Birmingham, Toronto and Singapore, giving students opportunity to study the same world-class programmes at any of these campuses, gain access to all of the resources, communicate with a growing network of 10,000+ business students and to move around the campuses during their programme to gain a truly global experience.
European business schools tend to draw a higher proportion of international students than USA business schools, thus, providing diverse international experience to their students, enabling them to think systematically about cultural, administrative, political, geographic, and economic differences across countries and how they affect business decisions.
