The cooperation between Tongji University and ESCP Europe push forward with the strategic step of globalization for both parties. ”

“The cooperation between Tongji and ESCP Europe, providing a platform for oriental and European entrepreneurs to communicate and learn together, has had set a paradigm for the deep cooperation between East Asia and European business schools.” Prof. HUO Jiazhen, Dean of Tongji SEM said, “It is also another great leap in the internationalization process of Tongji SEM, which thus has become the first business school in Chinese mainland breaking into the hinder-land of Europe.”

Tongji University is one of the top and the most prestigious universities in China with more than 100 years of history since its establishment in 1907.

The School of Economic Management was founded in 1984, and was merged with the Business School to become the School of Economics and Management (hereinafter referred to as SEM) in 1998. SEM has established collaborative partnerships with over 50 renowned business schools and universities in 15 countries in areas including faculty exchanges, scientific research, and student exchange.

In 2011, SEM ranked 7th in the Excellent Business School, China Area and was among the global 1000 best business schools announced by the Eduniversal---an authoritative business school ranking institution in Europe.

The landing of Tongji-ESCP Executive MBA in Shanghai has symbolized that the globalization era of Executive MBA is coming--six transnational campuses, five trans-continental international seminars, over 40,000 alumni and nearly 100 participants from more than 150 countries.
