Five leading business schools have recently joined together to create a new global double degree master program for recent college graduates.

Through the M2M Program, students will be able to study at two of the five schools--HEC Paris for Europe, Yale School Of Management in the United States, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, FGV-EAESP Sao Paulo Business Administration School in Brazil, and University of British Columbia in Canada.

They will graduate from two master’s degrees and gain both an advanced business education and the global perspective that comes from studying and living in diverse countries in two years. They will also benefit from the career resources, networks, and distinctive strengths of two leading business schools during the 2-year program. Even after gradation, they could also enjoy the rich alumni and career resources provided by the schools.

All the five business schools are members of the global network for advanced management, which aims at cultivating business leaders with international perspective via multidimensional cooperation and innovation. The M2M program is a new innovation expected to bring more advantages to students than other master programs.

The different academic atmosphere in two schools and cultures in two countries will help build up solid foundation for students’ international development in the future.

Students from all over the world with different backgrounds and perspectives will also enrich their experiences in study and life, helping them establish wide global network.

The diversified choice of courses allows students to discover cross-areas and research issues as well as to improve their skills in the core fields of management.

David Bach, deputy dean of Yale School Of Management, said the program was an opportunity for young students.

No matter what kind of career path would they choose, young business leaders would rapidly learn the skills needed in the globalized business market in these famous business schools, he added.

He also pointed out that the networks of leading business schools would have profound impact on students’ future development.

Peter Todd Dean of HEC Paris, said the program could meet modern society and business world’s demand for large number of international talent with strong capability, while the diplomas of two leading business schools would also help students enter international companies.
