Tsinghua-INSEAD Dual Degree (TIEMBA)
Ranked as one of the top EMBA programmes in the world by the Financial Times, the Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA is a unique programme designed by INSEAD and China’s prestigious Tsinghua University in Beijing. The TIEMBA combines INSEAD’s global presence and Tsinghua’s in-depth expertise of business in China, with lessons that can also be applied to other emerging markets. Graduates from this programme will become members of two of the most powerful alumni networks of the world.

The TIEMBA was the only EMBA programme that I applied to. I had been looking for a programme which would provide me with access to the best of both the east and west, and the programme offers exactly that.

*Programme schedule is subject to change. During the electives modules, TIEMBA participants will have the chance to meet and network with participants of the other GEMBA sections at INSEAD.
Tsinghua and INSEAD offer merit and need-based scholarships to offset tuition fees for TIEMBA candidates whose profiles will help further the programme's objectives as a vehicle for promoting international leadership and business practice.
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 joint programme is a combination of both schools' strengths. It is specifically designed for leaders in or doing business with the Asia-Pacific region, which is reflected in the programme's content and the networking opportunities made available to participants.
The INSEAD EMBA will continue to be a global programme based at each of INSEAD's campuses, while Tsinghua's own EMBA programme is based in China. Participants in each of these three EMBA programmes (Tsinghua, INSEAD, or TIEMBA) will have the opportunity to convene both on campus and through the two schools' activities. This also reflects both schools' commitment to diversity, not only in terms of culture, but also in terms of international experience and management skills. For both INSEAD and Tsinghua, the motivation for working together is based on education and strategic goals. Each will be able to benefit from shared teaching resources, research cooperation, case writing, student exchanges, and new market penetration.
