EMBAs gaining popularity in globalising world

Q&A

Michael Desiderio

MD: M ichael Desiderio, Executive Director, Executive MBA Council GF: Ginn Fung, Editor, Education Post, SCMP GF: What insights did you gain about EMBA programmes from your latest Student Exit Benchmarking Survey? MD: One of the things we like to mention when we’re talking about EMBAs is who is sitting in the classroom. It’s something that differentiates an EMBA from other MBA programmes. Full-time MBA students are usually much younger than EMBA students, and have less work experience. The professor at the front of the room is still important, but so is the sharing that goes on among the folks in the class. The people in the classroom are part of what makes an EMBA valuable. There are also some statistics concerning salaries in the survey. On average, people get a 16.8 per cent raise after taking the course. That doesn’t mean everybody is getting a raise, as it’s an average salary increase taken from 2,300 students. It speaks to the value of the degree. GF: What is the benefit of studying for an EMBA? MD: Put the salary increases and promotions aside for a moment. They are tangible, but there is also something bigger,

which is the result of bring together anything from 40 to 60 people. When you go into an EMBA programme, you are often in a very diverse group. We put marketing executives, executives from non-profits, technology executives, publishers, all in the same room. We immerse them in an environment and hand them a business case to work through together. Our alumni have told us this is not something you can do anywhere else. It has an extreme value. At the other end of the spectrum, some programmes are hyper-focused on a specific market. For instance, there is a programme in the US that’s fully focused on the wine industry. These kind of programmes work because some people are looking for something in a very narrow niche.

a global emba ... SHAKES YOU up, and you get to know the culture

GF: Do you think that more schools will open in China, or form local partnerships with schools there? Going international seems to be a trend. MD: Most EMBA programmes, regardless of where they are located, involve an experiential where they take managers and executives and immerse them in a place away from where the programme is running. They’ll go there for seven to 10 days. It’s more than just going to France to drink wine and eat cheese. It’s about going to visit a business, and that is valuable. Global EMBA programmes are another thing. In these, partner schools move the executives around. They might go to Spain for a week, then Beijing, then somewhere in the US. A global EMBA programme immerses people in a different place for around four weeks. It shakes you up, and you get to know the culture. It is easy to read about how business is done in China, but it’s a different thing to spend some

time with Chinese businesses. These global EMBA programmes are picking up steam and gaining popularity. More schools are thinking about them as the world goes global. GF: What do you see as the next big thing for the curriculum? Big data? MD: It’s a great question and we are still trying to figure that out. I don’t see core courses changing any time soon. If you are going to get an MBA, you are probably going to have to study a core of finance, accounting, and marketing. But what other stuff will be wrapped around it? You mentioned business analytics. Well, can you teach that to executives who have been working for 14 years, if they don’t already have that skill set? Can you turn them into experts, or is it about making them aware of it so that they hire experts? We are looking into that, and I expect to have more of an answer about analytics in six months’ time. As for the the next big thing for EMBA, I’m not sure what it is. What we need to do as an industry is listen. I look for signals from the business community. We take our cue from them. GF: What signals are you getting from them now? MD: People are always asking us to do more to shore up leadership skills. That is a nebulous topic. You can train people to do hardcore accounting – debits, credits, and balance sheets. But there’s an argument around whether leadership skills can be taught, as some say they have to be learned on the job. We have a long history of integrating leadership into EMBA programmes, and I don’t see that going away. GF: What does the Executive MBA Council consist of? MD: We are an association of business schools that offer EMBA programmes exclusively. We have 232 business schools in 40 countries that offer 330 EMBA programmes. We are very fortunate. We have been experiencing continued growth, meaning that new schools have been joining us. It is such a privilege to be here in Asia for the first time with this conference. It has gone extremely well, and the local schools have helped us immensely. When you go to a new place with a big show like the Executive MBA Council Conference, you never know if people are going to support you. But they have.

Trends

China’s rise gives EMBAs an Asian flavour Text: Ginn Fung Photo: Reuters

The rising power of China’s economy, the world’s second largest, means that business schools around the world are putting an Asian emphasis on their executive MBA programmes. Schools and universities in Europe and North America are seeking links with colleges in Asia, to add an Asian flavour to the courses they offer students who are keen to exploit the new opportunities in the east. Schools taking part in the Executive MBA Council Conference in Singapore, which took place October 25 to 28, demonstrated a growing interest in forging links with Asia’s dynamic economies. Håkan Ericson is managing director of the school of executive education at the school of business, economics and law at Sweden’s University of Gothenburg, which has a longstanding co-operation with Asian colleges, including Zhejiang University in Hangzhou and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.


Håkan Ericson

“We do exchanges,” Ericson says. “We exchange students, and we exchange professors. We have chosen to integrate this into our executive and day programme by sending our participants in groups of 20 to 25 for a 10-day residency. They go to Hangzhou and Shanghai for five days each. Sweden is a small economy which is highly dependent on trade and an openness to the world. We feel that acquiring a profound understanding of emerging markets is vital for any Executive MBA, and will continue to be so for many years.” Ericson says the students relish the opportunity to experience Chinese business culture, and Chinese culture in general. “I went with a law cohort in April this year, and spent the whole 10 days with them,” he says. “They get to see Chinese faculty professors lecturing, and we also do field trips. We go to Chinese companies to understand how they operate, and find out how those operations

might impact Swedish multinational companies, or Swedish local companies.” Ericson says that some of the students are entrepreneurs. “Our cohorts reflect the nature of regional business in Gothenburg. On the one hand, we have big companies producing cars, trucks, roller ball bearings, and pharmaceuticals. We have Volvo, which is now owned by Geely in Hangzhou, and AstraZeneca, the UK-Swedish pharmaceuticals company. On the other hand, we have medium-sized companies, and also some entrepreneurs. So we have a good blend.” Ericson says some of the students enrol on the EMBA programme because they have an interest in Asia. “This year, in the latest cohort, we have a guy who lives in Stockholm, the Swedish capital. There are executive MBA programmes available there, but he chose to travel to Gothenburg because of the Asian flavour of our programme, and that is very rewarding for us.” Ericson adds that the school is about to venture into areas which are the focus of the EMBA Council conference, including co-delivery and co-operation. “It’s not quite official yet, but we are looking at co-operating, even at EMBA level, with another university in opening up parts of the curriculum as open courses for students to pick and choose,” he says. But Ericson stresses that the school is keen to maintain a Nordic focus in its EMBA programme, to balance the Asia emphasis. “We believe that, in firming up, we will definitely keep the Asian focus of our programme, but we will also keep the Nordic focus. We think that is interesting too. The Nordic-Asian balance is important to us. What characterises the Nordic cultures is design, entrepreneurship, innovation, corporate social responsibility, and intellectual property management, which are areas where we are strong in research at our school. We let that reflect the way we design the executive MBA programme.” Elmer Almachar, director, Executive MBA Program, at Kellogg School of Management, in the US, is another firm believer in forging strong Asian links.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO INCREASE AND CREATE VALUE IN THE ASIAN REGION FOR ALL OF OUR STUDENTS


The Kellogg EMBA is run in conjunction with schools around the world, including Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) business school. This year it retained second place in the Financial Times Executive MBA rankings.

Elmer Almachar

“Asia is hugely important. China is hugely important,” Almachar says. “One of the things that we have learned is how much of a driver China is going to be in the development of the Asian region. “If you run the numbers, you can see that the number of programmes that have started in Asia in the last 25 years has increased by about sixfold. Meanwhile, in North America the increase has been about 1.5. So there is a definite shift into the Asian region. I think from the Kellogg perspective; we are always looking to create value for the students. Because Asia is such an important part of what the new global economy is going to look like in the 21st century, we are looking for ways to increase and create value in the Asian region for all of our students. “When we first started these partnerships some 20 years ago, it was with the implicit recognition that the world would have to be interconnected. So every successive new partner has brought something new to Kellogg, and to the experience that our students have,” Almachar says. “So, in some ways, the direction we are going in is part of what we have always been doing. In the past 20 years we have been so much more global,” Almachar adds. “I can’t think of another set of partnerships that spans the globe. There are logistical challenges to that. We are talking about partners in Europe and Israel, HKUST, and the US – we also have a campus in Miami. That adds up to a tremendous amount of experience available to our students. And it’s all layered. “It’s all about the exchange. In some ways, it is exactly what this conference [EMBA Council Conference] is about. That is, the interaction between all these diverse perspectives in a culture and an atmosphere which is really about engagement and sharing, and living with each other. That is the direction that Kellogg is going in. We are going to become even more global in some ways, and continue that tradition,” says Almachar.

Ranking

Revealing the new order Text: Staff reporter

The Kellogg-HKUST (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology) Business School EMBA has retained the number two spot in the 2015 Financial Times Executive MBA rankings. The new champion is the Tsinghua-Insead EMBA, known as the Tiemba, taught on Tsinghua’s Beijing campus and in France, Singapore, and the United Arab Emirates. It is the first programme including a mainland business school to occupy the top position, having wrested it from the Trium Global EMBA, offered in France, the United Kingdom and the United States, However, the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA was top for the highest average salary earned by alumni, at US$408,431, compared to US$324,115 for the Tiemba, the runner-up. Kellogg-HKUST, which topped the 2013 FT world rankings, came second for work experience behind the Trium Global EMBA. For the fourth year in a row, the top five places in the rankings were held by the same five intercontinental EMBAs, with the EM-

The FT EMBA ranking rates the best 100 programmes worldwide for working senior executives. The rankings are based on a survey of business schools as well as students who graduated in 2012. The data measures how successful alumni have been in their careers in terms of salary, seniority and achievements.

Overall, starting a company ranked lowest among the reasons cited for undertaking an EMBA. Instead, students’ main motivating factors were learning about management, networking and boosting earnings, although 26 per cent had started their own company during their EMBA or since graduating. A whopping 93 per cent rated their new skills as important or very important in their decision. Another key factor to EMBA entrepreneurs was the support of their school and alumni network, with around three in four considering both to be helpful or very helpful. Entrepreneurs in Asia and Oceania seem to be the most successful, with 48 per cent earning most of their income from their company, as well as earning the highest salary – an average of US$251,000.

Global finance centres offer EMBA-Global Asia students triple boost

The majority of the programme’s core course block weeks are in Hong Kong with additional blocks in New York, London and a final week in Shanghai. Faculty from all three schools fly to each city along with the students. In the second year, there is a required international seminar, which might be in Europe, South Africa, South America or elsewhere. And when it comes to picking seven electives, the choice can be from any of the topics and locations offered by each of the three schools from their various MBA and EMBA programmes.

John Cremer

By simply being able to draw on the resources of three leading business schools in the world’s top three financial centres, the EMBA-Global Asia offers something special. From the outset, high-flying executives signing up for the programme know they will get first-rate teaching from faculty members who are experts in their respective fields, along with a wide choice of electives, challenging international assignments, and great networking opportunities. But the programme, which is run by the University of Hong Kong (HKU) Business School in partnership with London Business School and New York’s Columbia Business School, is also constantly evolving to keep pace with the times and respond to issues of increasing importance to the wider community. “Things change so quickly, so in each course or elective, teachers make a point of bringing in the latest trends and themes,” says Dave Evers, Director of Admissions and Business Development for the EMBA-Global Asia programme. “Those might relate to management practices, the regulatory environment, social responsibility, technology, or business ethics. Besides which, the diversity of backgrounds and nationalities in each cohort, as well as the chance to spend time with groups in other cities, means there are tremendous opportunities to learn about the latest developments in different industries from classmates and new acquaintances.” In the first year of the 20-month programme, students take 12 core courses covering subjects that range from finance and marketing to organisational structure and strategy. Early on, one course on executive leadership deals with communication skills and teamwork includes a 360-degree survey to ensure that, when formed into study groups, individuals can quickly build understanding and cooperate effectively.

Some students may opt to do most of their electives in one city, with a particular emphasis on finance, entrepreneurship, or Asia-related topics. Others, though, will prefer to mix and match, taking advantage of the chance to branch out and broaden their scope. “With the contacts and resources at our disposal, we can also invite senior executives of leading multinationals and other influential figures to discuss the issues of the day in a neutral environment,” Evers says. “Such people can talk openly if they know they are “off the record” and will give thoughtful and original perspectives on what is happening in the world today.” The class size for the EMBA-Global Asia is capped at 50, with a view to giving all students the opportunity to speak up in discussions and participate fully. One objective of the discussion is to get students to see that business is not just about making money and increasing profits. It should also be about giving something back to society and being prepared to address issues like inequality and the problems associated with capitalism. The next intake will start classes in May 2016, but anyone interested in applying should be taking steps in the next few weeks to meet the initial December 31 scholarship deadline. Regular information sessions provide a chance to meet faculty members, current students and alumni, and staff overseeing the admissions process. Some scholarships are available for self-funded candidates who do not benefit from company sponsorship. “You need to commit to the first year and get through the core courses,” Evers says. “But, if extra time is needed to complete the electives, then we can allow up to five years from the date you were admitted.” Recently, the programme has also made a commitment to offer more career services, recognising that a fair proportion of students take the EMBA-Global Asia with an eye to a career switch or a major change of direction. Students now have access to a special LinkedIn site and, if looking for a new role in another part of the world, can get job-search support from any of the three schools. “Everyone taking the programme becomes part of a huge alumni network, which is growing fast in Asia,” Evers says. “There are also regular social events to help bring people together.”

Alan White, MIT Sloan School of Management

Business education gets out of the classroom Text: Vickie Chan Photo: Jonathan Wong That China has changed a lot in the last two decades isn’t hard-hitting news. But in that time, business has changed immensely too, from the way we do it, to the kind of companies on the market and what makes them successful. This year, MIT Sloan School of Management is celebrating 20 years of experience in the MIT-China Management Education Project. To mark the occasion, Alan White, Senior Associate Dean Emeritus and Senior Lecturer Emeritus, speaks about his experience in the changing landscape of business education and how China – and the world – are evolving. “Education can add value to your career at many stages throughout your life,” says White, who believes leadership potential can always be improved with management training. The MIT Sloan School of Management offers various courses, from an MBA or MFin that suits graduates and those in their early 30s, to a mid-career programme such as the EMBA, which attracts those in their late 30s and early 40s.


There are obvious advantages to business education, with networking at the top of the list. White advises that diversity will always help you to stand out. Yet despite the slew of skills that many attribute to their MBA experiences, such as understanding strategy or accounting better, White has another idea. “Business education is something you do, not something that happens.” And he doesn’t mean that there are advantages in actively pursuing education; he means get out of the classroom. Business education is no longer a classroom experience. Part of MIT Sloan School of Management’s experience includes consulting assignments under the mentorship of a faculty member. In the Lab project, MIT Sloan students partner with international MBA students from five partner schools to address business issues at host companies in China. The teams visit the companies each spring to work on-site with their Chinese IMBA teammates. Likewise, the Chinese IMBA students spend a week at MIT Sloan. “We believe that education should stick. If it’s action oriented it can have a real impact,” White says.

business education is something you do, not something that happens

About 4 per cent of MIT Sloan School of Management’s MBA students are from mainland China, while a stunning 52 per cent make up the MFin programme. White is impressed by how fast things have changed in China over the past 20 years. The change is reflected in the development and adjustment of course structures with partner universities Fudan University, Lingnan (University) College at Sun Yat-sen University, Tsinghua University and Yunnan University. The most important trend White has experienced in business education has hit home in China, too. “Globalisation is so important. In education, it’s about communication, being able to think outside your country – as a business – even if your target market is local,” he says. With entry barriers lower – and competition much higher – White says every business has the potential to be global – and so does education. And although education opportunities between Asia and the west are levelling, White believes globalisation might hugely increase the number of expats working overseas. “Imagine an international marketplace of talent where nationality is irrelevant. I think globalisation will move people around, and that will be considered desirable.” Executive Inside MBA MBA 2015

Meanwhile, entrepreneurship is an important trend that is proving challenging to business education. While MIT’s engineering and business students benefit from one another’s expertise, publicised success stories like Apple and Google – or Dropbox, the cloud storage company that developed out of MIT, and was valued at US$10 million over a year ago – have changed the way graduates from around the world think. “People are less oriented towards a corporate culture, they want independence instead of a single career for their whole lives,” White says. The difficulty is that there are no academic rules for teaching entrepreneurship – or leadership. “It’s not about being trained – so we rely on outside speakers with experience to come in. It’s another reason for experiential learning,” White explains, adding that while China is ripe for entrepreneurs, opportunities are lacking. Changes like this show that schools are led by markets – having to interpret and then change curriculum accordingly – otherwise management education could lose its importance. And institutions have to keep up with demand from students. If anything is preventing Chinese universities from catching up with schools like MIT, it’s the model they’re run on and not a lack of facilities. “China inherited a Russian model where research is done in academies and not in faculties,” White explains. “The faculty are so busy teaching that they can fall behind in their knowledge because they aren’t out living and working in the real world.” In the west, faculties have a lot of power and, effectively, administration is there to serve the faculty. In China, it’s the other way around. “If you don’t have a research-based faculty you won’t have a truly global school,” White states, adding that in China universities rely on outside speakers to communicate this understanding to students. Nonetheless, White’s advice for those who want to make a move is experiential. “The field is more level, especially between east and west, so I would advise you to get as much experience as you can in the environment you’re going into – not just in education – before you go for the job.”
