The University of Wollongong in Dubai, United
Arab Emirates, and Politecnico di Milano’s Graduate
School of Business in Italy have partnered to launch a Global Executive Master in Luxury
Management (GEMLux). Created in response to a
growing global demand for luxury goods, especially
among Chinese customers, the four-semester dual
degree is designed to prepare students for roles
as luxury brand managers, fashion retail buyers,
public relations specialists, creative directors, brand
ambassadors, and visual merchandising executives.
The Whitman School of Management and the
College of Law at Syracuse University in New York
have partnered to launch an online joint JD/MBA
degree. The degree combines two online programs:
MBA@Syracuse, which features synchronous
classes, asynchronous coursework, and hands-on
residencies; and JDinteractive (JDi), which includes
self-paced online classes and experiential learning.
Cambridge Judge Business School in the United
Kingdom and Peking University HSBC Business
School in China have collaborated to design two
new executive education programs: Making Innovation
Happen and International Strategic Management.
Both programs will train Chinese entrepreneurs
and executives to implement methods and
tools under real-world operating conditions. PHBS
and CJBS created the programs to help advance
the national talent development strategy of the
Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
