Tuck and Peking U. form initiatives

Published May 3, 2004; Category: TUCK SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

One program studies Asian business, other teaches consulting

The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth has formed a new partnership with the Beijing International MBA Program (BiMBA) at Peking University. The agreement establishes two new initiatives - the Joint Research Initiative on China and the Tuck-BiMBA China Consulting Studies Initiative. Each is the first of its kind between a top U.S. business school and a Chinese counterpart.

In the Joint Research Initiative on China, faculty members from both schools will collaborate on research and produce a series of case studies about the activities of Japanese and other Asian companies in China.

In the Tuck-BiMBA China Consulting Studies Initiative, a program of consultancy projects for Chinese and foreign businesses in China will be carried out by teams of Tuck and BiMBA students. Faculty members from both schools will supervise the teams through all phases of the projects. This initiative will be a distinctive feature of the highly successful Tuck Global Consultancy Program, through which 78 consultancy projects have been conducted in some 30 countries and territories to date.

The partnership agreement was signed in Beijing in March. The Tuck School and BiMBA will renew both initiatives every three years.
