"The international environment created by students and professors gave me deeper insight into the success factors of doing business in Asia. The most memorable lectures were on Organizational Behaviour, which led to very interesting and active class discussions that covered areas such as Corporate Finance, Innovation and Leadership in Asia."

Fast Track Between China & the World

In recent years, China's relationship with the world has seen significant change.

China has opened its markets to the world, encouraging multinationals to increase their investment in East Asia. Local players are seeing increased domestic opportunity, as well as gateways to expanding heir business abroad.

We are on the cusp of a period where China is becoming a leader of world markets and a major player in investment globally. This is your chance to be at the cutting edge of the next stage of global business.

The Tsinghua & INSEAD Partnership

The Tsinghua University School of Economics & Management (SEM) is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious business schools in China. INSEAD, devoted to being The Business School for the World, is a natural choice as partner to Tsinghua's international ambitions. This joint programme is an important step for INSEAD to leverage its 3 global campuses, and provides opportunity to expand on its established EMBA programme.

Both Tsinghua and INSEAD find it a perfect opportunity to join hands, heralding a strong start to a more comprehensive teaching and research cooperation in the future.

Message from the Deans

Global business knowledge plus an in-depth understanding of the Chinese context. This is the equation for career success in today’s world economy. But how do you become an expert in both?


This challenge is what motivated us to create the Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA: a unique, modular, dual-degree programme for experienced executives. Our goal is to offer participants the best of both institutions: one of China’s most elite universities and one of the world’s top international business schools. Nine years and 354 alumni later, the TIEMBA is ranked number two in the world by the Financial Times. We are proud of our seamless East-West partnership, as well as the advantages that it offers our participants.


The TIEMBA runs across Beijing, Singapore, Fontainebleau and Abu Dhabi providing unparalleled multicultural perspectives and insights into some of the most dynamic regions of the world. The programme fuses intense leadership development training with a rigorous yet highly applied management curriculum, and stands at the intersection of two of the world’s most powerful alumni networks.


It is thus no surprise, that the TIEMBA has built a remarkable track record of producing successful business leaders and entrepreneurs. Imagine what we can do, together, for your East-West success.
