Hitotsubashi University, Peking University and Seoul National University combine to form the BEST Alliance

Hitotsubashi University (Japan), the Guanghua School of Management of Peking University (China) and the College of Business Administration and Graduate School of Business at Seoul National University (South Korea) have recently aligned to form the BEST Alliance.  

This alliance offers two primary benefits to students in each program.  First, it will allow students to complete a double degree while studying at two of the institutions, spending the first year at their home institution, and then taking a year at a second program (only 6-months in the case of SNU).  At the end, students will have earned an MBA from both of the institutions they learned at.  The second benefit is that students of each program will be able to complete a one-term exchange with one of the other programs.

For more information on this unique alliance between three leading Asian MBA programs, visit this page summarizing recent media coverage of the alliance or the official website of the BEST Alliance.
