So says MBAChina, which ranked the Master of Science in Management-Finance program at Weatherhead/CWRU, in partnership with the School of Economics and Management at Tongji in Shanghai, second among more than 200 finance-focused MBA programs in China.
In the ranking, which was released last month, only a joint program between Cornell and Tsinghua universities was rated higher.
CWRU said its program with Tongji, launched in 2011, has admitted more than 300 students in nine cohorts. A 10th cohort is scheduled to start the program this fall.
The program is designed "to balance the technical dimension and managerial practice of finance not usually offered in general MBA programs," according to CWRU. It's delivered primarily in Shanghai, with final residency in Cleveland. The program is designed so that graduates "learn a global view of financial markets, models and instruments," CWRU says. Students earn both an MBA from Tongji as well as a master's of science in finance degree from Weatherhead.
