The Tsinghua – INSEAD Executive MBA (TIEMBA) is a unique partnership between INSEAD, one of the world's leading business school, and Tsinghua, one of China’s most prestigious universities. The programme takes place across INSEAD’s three campuses in Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Fontainebleau, and Tsinghua’s two campuses in Beijing and Shenzhen.
As a participant, you will exchange perspectives within an elite, dynamic, culturally diverse class of experienced managers and be part of two powerful alumni networks. The TIEMBA is where life-changing leadership development meets technical mastery of key business disciplines. And both make an immediate impact in your organisation. It is the best of East and West, learning and working, technical knowledge and soft skills — in a single programme.
To study at Tsinghua University is to join an institution whose history is intertwined with China’s extraordinary economic growth story of the last few decades. In fact, the founding dean of the School of Economics and Management (SEM), Professor Zhu Rongji, went on to become China’s fifth Premier in 1998. Today his vision of a school where China’s business elite could learn about best global practice and its implementation in the Chinese economy is a reality. Tsinghua SEM has become one of the world’s most acclaimed business schools: a magnet for entrepreneurial activities and outstanding professionals from throughout China and beyond.
INSEAD is one of the world’s largest and highest-ranked graduate business schools. More importantly, it’s a unique environment that brings together people and ideas from different cultures to change lives and transform organisations. A global perspective and cultural diversity are reflected in all aspects of its research and teaching across three equal-status campuses in three world regions. Every year, INSEAD’s 145 expert faculty from more than 40 countries inspire over 1,300 master participants, while more than 10,000 executives are drawn to its campuses to participate in Executive Education.
This challenge is what motivated us to create the Tsinghua–INSEAD Executive MBA (TIEMBA): 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.
Fifteen years from 2007 to 2021 and 589 alumni and participants later, the TIEMBA is consistently ranked one of the top EMBA programmes 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, Shenzhen, 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.
The TIEMBA is designed around several essential components: Core Courses, Elective Courses, Key Management Challenges, the Leadership Development Programme and a Final Thesis. It covers the business school classics as well as the current business and technical trends, with a global vision and a deep understanding of the Chinese context. This curriculum fully embodies the advantages of Tsinghua University as a comprehensive university and INSEAD as a world-leading business school.
