In the spring of 2010, the School launched the Master’s program reform. After the reform, the Master’s programs are reorganized into three types: the academic Master’s programs, the specialized Master’s programs and the general Master’s program.
These programs aim to educate talents for academic researches.
The academic programs have a curriculum that is in line with the Ph.D. curriculum in respective disciplines. Graduates can go on for doctoral studies in China or abroad. They can also work as researchers in academic institutes.
The Specialized Master’s Programs: Masters in Finance, Masters in Accounting
These programs aim to train specialized experts in finance and accounting.
The specialized programs value practical abilities, as well as theoretical foundations. Graduates mainly go to accounting firms, financial institutions, and accounting or financial units in corporations.
Besides the Masters in Finance program at SEM, the School also collaborates with Tsinghua University’s Graduate School at Shenzhen in providing Masters in Finance education. Both programs are the same in terms of curriculum and admissions requirements, as well as tuition fee, quality of teaching and degree accreditation, with the location of teaching being the only difference.
The General Master’s Program: Masters in Management (MiM)
As in the other two types of Master’s programs, this program also recruits pre-experience undergraduate graduates. It aims to nurture students’ analytical, general management and leadership skills, preparing them for managerial and leadership positions in corporations, government and non-profit organizations.
Tsinghua SEM’s Masters in Management (MiM) Program is the first MiM program in China. Integrated of four previous master’s programs in Business Strategy, Human Resources and Organizational Behavior, Marketing, as well as Innovation and Entrepreneurship, MiM is a general Master’s program with bilingual (Chinese and English) instructions.
MiM students are expected to attain a systematic knowledge structure through a set of advanced economics and management courses. They learn in every aspect of economics and management, including applied economics, macro and micro finance, management fundamentals, leadership, ethics and communications. The curriculum demands profound analytical skills, highlighting intensified hands-on practice.
