The markets for industrial goods and professional services are constantly in flux. This means that it is critically important for businesses to develop and maintain a climate of ongoing learning and proactive conduct on the part of all employees.

Over the past decade, China has developed into a global economic powerhouse and overtook Germany in becoming the world's greatest exporter in 2009. On the one hand, for Europeans, doing business in China is still quite different from dealing with Western trade partners. On the other hand, engaging in economic activities in Europe may be completely novel for many Chinese executives. To face these challenges from both perspectives, Freie Universität Berlin and Peking University, linked by more than 30 years of partnership, have joined forces to offer a new part-time executive programme: the China-Europe Executive Master of Business Marketing (China-Europe EMBM).
