Johnson to offer bilingual MBAs with Chinese university

The Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management announced June 3 that it has entered into a partnership with Tsinghua University and its PBC School of Finance to offer a dual-degree MBA and finance MBA taught in English and Mandarin. The 21-month-long, part-time, 60-credit program is scheduled to enroll its first students in April 2015.

“The launch of the dual-degree program is truly a historic moment in our respective schools’ histories. With China as the second-largest economy in the world, it is an important point in time to collaborate and develop this important partnership and unique program, to benefit students and executives from both America and China,” said Johnson Dean Soumitra Dutta.

Approximately 65 students with an average age of 30 to 35 and an average of five to eight years work experience are expected to enroll. Coursework will include two, two-week study trips consisting of case competitions, a Wall Street trek and integration with Johnson MBA and Executive MBA students on the Ithaca campus and Cornell Tech in New York City (read more).

Message from the Vice Provost for International Affairs

We live in an interdependent world, a smaller world, in which borders are more porous.  A great many of the issues we confront today are transnational, indeed global, in scope. Cornell and other universities thus have an urgent task: to produce leaders and citizens of tomorrow who have cross-cultural awareness, who grasp and live the adage that in this global environment, we need to understand each other better.

Our Vision

We seek to set the standard for globalization of higher education, sharing our knowledge and tapping the insights of the best minds the world over. Beginning with its founding and the matriculation of its first students, Cornell has been international in scope and aspiration. Students from Canada, England, Russia, and Brazil were enrolled in our first classes, and by the early 1900s, students from China and Brazil were a significant presence on our campus.

Over the decades, Cornell has become a globally respected institution of learning, discovery, and creativity that excells both at international studies (understanding the world and its peoples), development studies, and international relations (the use of education, research, and academic partnerships to effect positive change in the world). As New York State’s land-grant institution to the world, we aim to increase opportunities for our faculty, staff, and students to make positive contributions as a result of their international orientation, cultural understanding, and technical expertise.

Our Plan

Recognizing and building on Cornell’s public missionwith its relevance to the international communityis one of five overarching goals that Cornell University has identified in its Strategic Plan. Cornell’s work provides clinical care, technical expertise, research, ideas, and assistance to communities all over the globe. As we approach our 150th year as one of America’s great universities, we seek to strengthen our faculty and the educational opportunities we offer to our students, as well as make investments in research and engagement that serve human welfare internationally. We seek to raise private support for international programs that will sustain work throughout the university.

Our Priority Areas

International programs and engagement require major new investments. With the rise of new global possibilities and the decline in federal support for international research and teaching, Cornell seeks the philanthropic support of alumni, parents, and friends who care deeply about international studies, language education, international engagement, global sustainability, and Cornell’s continued leadership in these areas.

Cornell seeks to raise $30 million in support of several international program initiatives, including $1 million for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, $350,000 for the College of Human Ecology, $500,000 for the ILR School, $250,000 for the Cornell University Library, and $1.5 million for the Cornell Law School.
