Tsinghua School of Economics and Management (Tsinghua SEM), founded in 1984, was one of the first economics and management schools in China. Professor Zhu Rongji, the Founding Dean, later became the fifth Premier of the People’s Republic of China. Tsinghua SEM is now among the premier business schools in Asia and enjoys world class faculty, students and research centers.
Tsinghua SEM is the successor to the Department of Economics, which was established in 1926. Since then, the school has built a strong alumni network. The school’s mission is to be a worldclass school of economics and management by contributing academic knowledge that fuels the revival of the Chinese economy and cultivating business leaders for China and the world.
The Tsinghua IMBA Program is a collaborative program between Tsinghua SEM and MIT Sloan School of Management. It was launched in September 1997 and currently more than 900 alumni (more than 5900 MBA graduates of Tsinghua SEM) have graduated and played important roles in business management in China and around the world. This program is a full-time, two-year, English-taught program. After two years of management and leadership education, students obtain a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from Tsinghua University as well as a certificate from MIT Sloan School of Management. Once the students are admitted, they can choose to apply for MIT-Tsinghua MBA/MS Dual Degree and Tsinghua-HEC Dual Degree MBA Program.
