默克尔总理第八次访华,助推中德深化合作,携手同济-曼海姆领航起飞!
Oct-30-2015

就在中英关系进入黄金时代、中荷关系进入蜜月期的时刻,德国总理默克尔于10月29日至30日对中国进行的国事访问,使得欧洲再次掀起中国热。

此次访华是她出任德国总理以来的第八次访华,访华次数超过了欧洲其他所有现任领导人。这与默克尔政府所寻求的亚洲政策的再平衡密切相关。

中德关系无论在经贸规模上,还是在政治磋商的紧密度上,相对于德国的其他亚洲伙伴国家,都处于一个新的战略高度。各大媒体杂志对于默克尔总理此次访华给予了高度关注:

在29日与李克强共见记者时,默克尔表示:支持人民币纳入SDR;支持中方成为欧洲复兴开发银行成员;早日签署中欧投资协定;启动中欧自贸区可行性研究;乐见欧盟在中国经济地位上取得积极进展

中德总理达成共识:携手推进“中国制造2025”和“德国工业4.0”战略对接】中国有完备工业体系和巨大市场,德国有先进技术,应推进“中国制造2025”和“德国工业4.0”战略对接,共同推动新工业革命和业态,达成双赢。默克尔当即回应愿积极推动,力争对接取得早期收获。

不难看出中国在经济转型的过程中,以德国为参考和借鉴,打造工业领域的高新技术为新一轮世界竞争的优势,从而实现由“制造大国”向“制造强国”的转变。在此背景下,国际化管理人才的培养也成了当下中德两国在教育文化领域合作最为关注的话题。作为全球唯一一个中德合作高端培训项目:同济—曼海姆双学位EMBA项目亦受到了媒体的广泛关注。2015年10月29日出版的China Daily德国专刊,专访了两位同济曼海姆EMBA项目的校友,全文如下:


With the expansion of economic and trading cooperation between China and Germany, high-level executive business education will help cultivate more skilled professionals to respond to changing international developments and challenges.

Shanghai-based Tongji University School of Economics and Management and the Mannheim Business School in Germany jointly established an executive MBA program in 2010.

The Mannheim & Tongji EMBA program includes intercultural perspectives in its business education, integrating innovative theory and many practical cases. This has gained wide attention from the business community and attracted a number of senior executives to the program.

“An EMBA program is a great opportunity to shape one’s career in a fast-turning and globalized world,”said Matthias Schmitt, global vice-president of build for lines of business solutions & analytics at SAP SE and a participant in the program. His company has also formed a partnership with the Mannheim & Tongji EMBA program.

“Nowadays, companies need global leaders with a global network, emotional intelligence and intercultural competence that of course needs to be mixed with effectiveness in terms of business process and business model design. Those aspects are all covered by the Mannheim & Tongji EMBA program and supported by theory lectures as well as a high share of practical team exercises and case studies,” Schmitt said, adding that the program provides an extraordinary opportunity to explore the Chinese business world combined with the German way of doing business.
“My feeling and observation is that there are many familiarities between China and Germany on the one hand and the complementary fit of both sides on the other. Hence I don’t believe that it happened accidentally that many joint ventures are China-German ones. These aspects are perfectly reflected in this program and thus I value it very highly,” he said.

The program consists of six modules, with three in Mannheim and three in Shanghai. The modules cover various business and management subjects, and each module has further four different hard and soft skill courses that are taught in English by faculties from both countries.

In addition, world-class faculty and business figures from leading enterprises in the Sino-European markets are invited to share their expertise with the classes.

A program board was also established with a number of global companies involved, which will oversee the program direction, quality control and support from industries and governors.
The school also carried out company visits and hosted a range of forums, which aim to increase the understanding of various industries inspire participants.

Other highlights of the program include its highly diverse cultures and small class size. School data shows that more than 60 percent of participants in the program are executives from around the world, and the small classes allow the diversity of perspectives to be fully conveyed.

“The study helps my decision making process become more structured and systematic,” said Jiang Jingfang, vice-president of Bosch chassis systems control division China, who is enrolled in the program.

“In daily life, sometimes it can happen that you make decisions just based on your passion or personal interests. I will adopt my learning into my daily practices, and although there may be no immediately visible changes, I believe they will have a long-term impact for me.”
Jiang said the EMBA program not only helps her gain comprehensive knowledge of business strategy and management but also widens and even changes her perspectives, in areas that she was not familiar with in her daily work, and provides new insights into her profession.

“For more than 15 years, I have been working with Bosch, a multinational company with headquarters in Germany. I prefer to study in this program, a ‘hybrid’ of German and Chinese training programs, which is unique from many other EMBA programs,” she said.
 

同济-曼海姆EMBA双学位项目于2009年由上海同济大学与德国曼海姆商学院共同建立,2010年迎来首届学员。项目开办5年来,招收了上百位中欧企业高级管理人员,中外学员各占50%,其中相当一部分学员入学前已获硕士甚至博士学位。项目聘请全球一流师资和世界著名企业家以保证高质量的课程内容和丰富的教学手段。六大教学模块涵盖企业发展所需要的多方位软技能,在中德两地轮换施教。课程使用跨文化视角,关注中欧商、企热点,强调采用中、欧、美典型案例,提升国际实战能力。
