Investing in Your Future

The Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA programme yields a lifetime of dividends, both professionally and personally. Pursuing an TIEMBA however, is a serious commitment of time and money—an investment that needs to be carefully considered and planned for by applicants.

To understand the financial obligations that are required for you to attend the TIEMBA Programme, check our Cost & Fees section. It is important to consider your financing and funding options early on during the application process, which could be in the form of savings, loans or scholarships. You may also consider the support of your employer, which is essential to the success in the programme. You can begin by seeing if you are eligible to apply for any of the scholarships or loans that are listed on our website. 

Though the responsibility of funding your year at INSEAD ultimately lies with you, the TIEMBA Financial Aid Office can assist you in planning your financing for the programme.

Scholarships and Financing Options

Around 15% of participants receive tuition support from their employers (usually with certain conditions attached). Others received sponsorship or self-fund the entire cost from personal savings and/or loans.

Receiving support for the TIEMBA programme from your employer means that you will need your organisation's backing in terms of time, flexibility and help with company-specific assignments. In addition to this, it could also mean receiving financial support. In return, the TIEMBA offers a considerable return on investment. Learn more about how to gain your employer's support.
