Mannheim Business School (Germany) and ESSEC Business School (France) have enriched the curriculum of their joint part-time Executive MBA program with yet another highly attractive element: As of 2012, a residency at a renowned business school in the U.S. forms an integral part of the program.
The first to benefit from the innovation will be the members of the next ESSEC & MANNHEIM Weekend Executive MBA class, who will start their program in April 2012 and can look forward to spending a week at NYU Stern. Professor Holger Mueller, the Bank and Financial Analysts Faculty Fellow and a Professor of Finance at NYU Stern, will serve as the Academic Director for this exciting residency. Professor Mueller received his Habilitation in Economics from the University of Mannheim and has been a professor at NYU Stern since 2001.
"This newly introduced U.S. residency makes the ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA even more attractive," says Professor Dr. Jens Wüstemann, President of Mannheim Business School. "Our participants now have the opportunity to gain direct business exposure in three of the most important economic regions in the world – Europe, North America and Asia." While the majority of courses take place in Mannheim and Paris, the ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA also includes a ten-day stay in Singapore and Shanghai in addition to the newly introduced U.S. residency.
"In effect, we now have one of the most international Executive MBA programs in the world," says Professor Dr. Daniel Veit, Academic Director of the ESSEC & MANNHEIM Weekend Executive MBA. Designed for senior executives with at least eight years of professional experience, it is already considered among the best globally in terms “international course experience”, according to the Financial Times. In fact, the ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA currently holds 11th place worldwide in that category in their Global Executive MBA Ranking (October 2011).
