Messages from the Deans

"With globalization and greater interlinking between countries, businesses as well as governments and nonprofit organizations are increasingly looking for leaders with a global perspective. To successfully manage and lead in an increasingly complex environment, many are finding that traditional business education in an MBA program is no longer enough.

To develop and enable the next generation of such business leaders with global perspectives, Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management (Tsinghua SE M) established the International MBA Program in 1997. In 2013, the International MBA Program and the Chinese-taught Full-Time MBA Program were integrated into the Tsinghua-MIT Global MBA Program, reflecting a deeper China focus and a wider global reach. In close collaboration with MIT Sloan School of Management, Tsinghua SEM’s leading faculty drives world-class business education. Program participants from across China and from around the world also deeply enrich classroom and extracurricular discussions. More than 10,000 Tsinghua MBA alumni - as well as the extensive alumni network of the broader Tsinghua University will help each student maintain global insights beyond graduation.

Perhaps most importantly, Tsinghua University’s prominence provides its students unparalleled access into China. As Tsinghua is one of the leading academic institutions as well as one of the centers of technology innovation and entrepreneurship of China, national and international dignitaries regularly seek audience at SE M. With the growing spotlight on China on the international stage, there is no better vehicle to understanding the global market.

These are difficult and yet exciting times for business leaders in China and around the world. If you too have ambitions to join them on the world stage, I warmly welcome all of you to join this program. We are confident that the Tsinghua-MIT Global MBA Program will not only provide you with a world-class business education, but also serve as Your Gateway to the Best of China."

"The Tsinghua-MIT MBA Program began 17 years ago and the Program has graduated over 1,500 future managers educated to recognize vital areas of opportunity including sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship, which are needed to move the Chinese economy forward. The MIT China Management Education Program has trained over 200 Chinese business faculty at MIT Sloan, influenced MBA curricula in China, and provided a model for business schools throughout the country. These collaborative efforts have been enormously successful, producing Global MBA graduates who have assumed positions in multinational companies or started their own businesses. We are committed to on-going support of the program at Tsinghua SEM, ensuring that Global MBA students continue to gain the skills necessary to navigate and succeed in a complex global economy."
