The structure of the MANNHEIM & TONGJI Executive MBA is adapted to the individual needs of executives and offers a high degree of flexibility. Participants meet for six nine- to eleven-day course modules – three of which take place in each Mannheim and Shanghai – that deal with different management disciplines. The program is designed to enable participants to graduate after 18 months. However, participants can also take breaks or only attend single courses of a module. The maximum term of the program is three and a half years, in which all courses have to be attended and all examinations must have been passed. Studies in each case begin in March (Shanghai) or in September (Mannheim).

The program does not only teach a sound and practical-oriented expertise, but also focuses on the European-Asian or respectively the German-Chinese economic relations and the special features of each market. This includes, among others, so-called soft skill courses, guest lectures, and excursions. The program concludes with a Master's project.
Participants will obtain each an Executive MBA degree from Mannheim Business school/Mannheim University and Tongji University (double degree).
