Tsinghua SEM has a post-doctoral research station in Business Administration, and is also entitled to offer the doctoral degree in Business Administration, which has been selected as a first-tier National Priority Discipline. Therefore, the Department can directly recruit post-doctoral, doctoral and Master’s students.
