Ties between Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), based in Shanghai, China, have been close for many years. Both partners enjoy the mutually beneficial relationship. Now the schools have signed an agreement concerning their MBA programmes, each will host a study week for the partner’s MBA group.
“Industry 4.0” – the digitisation of manufacturing, its effects and benefits – will be the core topic of the study week that Frankfurt School will host for the CEIBS MBA class. Frankfurt School’s part-time MBA students will spend a study week at CEIBS focusing on “International Management”.
Professor Dr Horst Löchel is the Programme Director of Frankfurt School’s full-time and part-time MBA programmes. He is Professor of Economics at Frankfurt School and Visiting Professor of Economics at CEIBS. From 2003 to 2012, he lived and worked in Shanghai, holding various senior positions in academia and education, e.g. at the Shanghai International Banking and Finance Institute (SIBFI) and at the German Centre of Banking and Finance at CEIBS.
He is delighted that Frankfurt School and CEIBS will expand their cooperation and says: “CEIBS is a globally renowned business school and has a superb track record with regard to its MBA programme. We are proud that we are now able to offer our MBA students an inspirational study week in Shanghai. Exciting site visits as well as seminars led by a rock-star faculty will add considerable value to the Frankfurt School MBA experience.” And he adds: “It will also be a true privilege for Frankfurt School to host a study week for the CEIBS MBA class. CEIBS’ MBA students are ambitious, curious and eager to learn. We are looking forward to welcoming them in Frankfurt!”
