Looking for a great opportunity to gain international exposure through world-class learning experiences? The Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Global Marketing (MScEGM) is a joint award offered by the Department of Marketing, Hong Kong Baptist University, and Grenoble Ecole de Management on a 15-month full-time study basis.
The program is designed for students who seek a graduate education in order more easily to advance into management and other leadership roles or to start a career as an entrepreneur.
The curriculum has been carefully designed to embrace a global view with global case studies and a business project addressing the principles and practices of entrepreneurship and international marketing management. More importantly, having the students spend one semester in France and one semester in Hong Kong will generate synergies between two institutions steeped in the business practices of very different regions of the world. For the students, this will bring the best sort of global exposure.
By spending the first semester in France and the second semester in Hong Kong, students can experience firsthand the east and the west in 15 months through global exposure.
