The students have between five and 25 years professional experience and will study for 18 months (part-time). The course is taught in both English and Chinese. The first module is given within the company located in Hangzhou near Shangai by professors from Antai Business School – Jiaotong University (one of the five best Chinese business schools which has a triple accreditation). The second and third modules are taught by Audencia remotely. The fourth module will focus on the writing of an MSc Thesis.
