Peter Zemsky
Interim Dean, INSEAD

One programme.
Two elite schools.
Four locations.
Many perspectives.

Today, business is no longer about globalisation.

Global has well and truly arrived with a
centre of gravity that is still shifting inexorably
to the East.
As a result, todays business leaders need to
develop multiple perspectives. And they need
a particularly strong grasp of developments
in Asia along with the lessons that the region
offers for other growing economies.
This is why we, two of the worlds most elite
academic institutions, came together to create
the TsinghuaINSEAD Executive MBA

The history of Tsinghua University is intertwined

with the history of China, with thousands of its
graduates playing significant roles in leading
the country to its status today.

Tsinghua is a magnet for entrepreneurial

activities, attracting professionals from all over
China for their Executive MBAs and has become
a powerhouse for new business.

The School of Economics and Management

(SEM) of Tsinghua University, established in
1984, stands tall in Asia, with an outstanding
faculty the founding dean was professor Zhu
Rongji, who went on to become Chinas fifth

Professor Zhu envisioned the school as a place

where Chinas business elite could learn to
integrate the best business practices from
around the world, while emphasising practical
implementation in the Chinese economy. His
ambition was to build Tsinghua SEM into one
of the best business schools in the world. Many
would agree that he has succeeded.

What I love about TIEMBA students is that they
ask such interesting questions. They have the

INSEAD Asia Campus


The campus of Tsinghua University is located in

northwest Beijing, in the academically-focused
Haidian district. The school was founded in
1911 on the site of Qing Hua Yuan (Tsinghua
Garden) a former royal garden of the Qing
Dynasty. Renowned for its beauty, the campus
offers a combination of traditional Chinese and
Western influenced architecture and was named
by Forbes as one of the most beautiful college
campuses in the world in 2010.

INSEAD has been in Singapore for over 30 years,

with an official campus opened in October
2000, firmly marking INSEADs commitment
to Singapore, Asia, and the global learning
environment. INSEADs Asia Campus is situated
25 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from
the financial district. With more multinationals
moving their Asia headquarters to Singapore,
INSEAD is poised for easy access to thriving
business in this growth region.

A Comprehensive Curriculum
The TIEMBA is designed around several essential components: Core Courses, Elective Courses,
Key Management Challenges, a final thesis and the distinctive Leadership Development
Programme. These combine to create a rigorous yet inspirational curriculum with long-term

Core Courses

Elective Courses

During the first 7 modules, we offer 12 core

courses, covering the breadth of key business
disciplines. Taught by both Tsinghua and
INSEAD professors, using a variety of teaching
styles, these will review, revive and expand
your understanding. Each course combines
business concepts with cases of their real-word
application and culminates with an exam.

Elective courses allow you to go into depth

in topics of your choice. They take place on
INSEADs idyllic Fontainebleau campus over
two weeks of the French summer. The TIEMBA
class comes together with the four sections of
the INSEAD Global EMBA and alumni of both
programmes to maximise the number of
course choices and networking possibilities.
To further enhance professional development,
TIEMBA graduates may return after graduation
to attend additional electives.

- Corporate Finance
- Data, Models and Decisions
- Financial Accounting
- Investments
- International Economics
- Macroeconomics
- Managerial Accounting
- Marketing
- Microeconomics
- Organisational Behaviour
- Strategy
- Strategic Human Resource Management

Electives (examples)*
- Negotiations
- Management Decision Making
- Psychology in Leadership
- Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation
- Winning Strategies in Emerging Markets

Key Management Challenges

At Tsinghua and INSEAD, we recognise that real-life management does not fall neatly into
business-school subject departments. This is why we devised the innovative Key Management
Challenge courses to cover broader, multi-disciplinary, whole-company issues and to address
uncertainty, change, incomplete information and open-ended problems. Assessment is on the
basis of short written assignments, ideally based on your experiences at work.
Key Management Challenges (examples)*
- Business and Commercial Laws
- Cross-cultural Management
- Corporate Governance
- Enterprise Risk Management
- Managerial Psychology

Developing Reflective Leaders

Leadership Development Programme
This is a distinctive component that we are
able to offer thanks to the pioneering work
of the INSEAD Global Leadership Centre.
The Leadership Development Programme (LDP)
runs throughout all of the modules and gives
you the self-awareness and strategies you need
to grow as a leader.

Accompanied and guided by a professional

executive coach, they embark on a journey
through many structured activities such as:
team-building, 360-degree feedback, forums
with top business leaders, group and individual
coaching sessions, focused teaching, role plays
and peer shadowing.

Participants are put into a learning group

of about four people selected for their
diversity in which they support, encourage
and challenge each other to broaden their
behavioural repertoire and develop their own
authentic leadership style.

The Leadership Development Programme is

a unique and enriching experience that takes
you far beyond the usual business school
curriculum. Ask any participant and they will
tell you that its one of the highlights of the

The Leadership Development Programme

is a mark of distinction for the programme
and for INSEAD. The one-on-one coaching,
the coaching groups and the personal
strategy projects focus on turning you from
a high-potential manager to a real and fullfledged leader in a global context. LDP puts
you in touch with yourself, helps you to find
out what you really want and gives you the
tools to achieve it.
It was a remarkably enriching experience
that came from bonding with very different
people from a variety of backgrounds,

endowed with tremendous skills and talents.

I was amazed by how much I could learn from
my classmates. Now, wherever I go in
the world, I have a friend: not just someone
to have a chat with, but someone I have a
deep connection with someone who feels
like family.

Learning Methodology

Diverse Learning Styles

Live Project Work

TIEMBA teaching is designed to bridge the

best in business theory and its practical
application using a wide range of
learning methodologies.

The final component of the programme,

the thesis, is a live case study with you as
the central character. But it is also a real-world
project such as a new venture or corporate
innovation. The thesis should show how you are
weaving your learning across the TIEMBA into
your practice. You will have ample time after the
final module to work on it, before defending
your submission at Tsinghua.

The Best of the East and the West

The relatively small class size (up to 50 people
from across the world) means participants
interact with each other and the faculty
very closely. Lectures, videos, case studies,
group exercises, participant presentations,
implementation essays, classroom debates,
Q&A sessions all these and more come
into the mix and encourage participants to
learn from one another. But you also get to
experience learning within one of Chinas most
famous institutions and have access to some of
the countrys most renowned faculty and policymakers. There is simply no better preparation
for doing business across borders and cultures.

Learning By Doing
In addition to traditional business school case
studies, based on real-life examples from
companies throughout the world, the TIEMBA
also uses a range of business simulations
and role-plays, both computer-based and
experiential. These enable you to practise your
newfound skills in a risk-free environment.
20 Tsinghua-INSEAD EMBA

Learning that Really is Lifelong

Unlike most degree programmes, graduation
from the TIEMBA comes with an open invitation
to return for two weeks of electives every year.
More than a chance to carry on learning at the
cutting edge, this is an opportunity to renew
old friendships and build new networks with
participants from other classes (as well as from
the INSEAD Global EMBA programme).

The traditional
western businessschool approach
just wasnt enough.

I come from a legal background. Although Ive

always worked in commercial law, increasingly
I was coming across issues concerning finance,
strategy and marketing that I couldnt fully
appreciate. Hence my decision to do an EMBA.
My strategy was to go for a top-branded school.
But the traditional western business-school
approach just wasnt enough. Because of the
nature of my work, it was also important for
me to have a better understanding of China.

Moreover, Tsinghuas economics professors are

not just first-rate academics; they are some
of Chinas major policy influencers. Quite often
Id come back from a module in China and see
my professor quoted on the front page of the
Financial Times.

Career Development
Both Tsinghua and INSEAD are recognised by
companies worldwide as a key source for talent.

to take these opportunities to reflect on your

career trajectory.

Executive MBA participants have diverse and

varying needs for career support. You may be
part of an organisation where you are already
on your way to building a successful career,
or conversely, you may wish to progress
your career by making a transition to a new
organisation. We recognise that you therefore
require a customised approach to career
development and aim to lend support for those
who have internal-career needs (making
the most of your career within your present
organisation) and external-career needs
(making a change outside your organisation).

Using a variety of effective tools and

frameworks, we support you in the process of
self-assessment and discovery with respect
to career development, in parallel with the
Leadership Development Programme.

Open to all participants throughout the

programme, we offer a series of activities
including workshops, discussions and one-toone career advice sessions to help bring into
focus your individual goals to develop your
career. Whether those goals are internal-career
or external-career focused, we encourage you

Job Search Support

For those whose career development is focused
on making a transition outside your current
company, the Career Development Centre
offers you support in developing an effective
job search strategy designed to meet your
goals for career fulfilment.

A Lifelong Network
Multiple Alumni Networks

Tsinghua Alumni Association

Graduation with an EMBA from both Tsinghua

and INSEAD is a beginning rather than
the end. It is the point where you join two
prestigious, international networks that offer
lifelong professional support and friendship.

Tsinghua has over 170,000 alumni, who are

supported through a vast network with
organised groups in more than 100 Chinese
cities and 30-plus countries. The strength of
the alumni community derives from the strong
sense of belonging to Tsinghua, the Universitys
unique position in Chinese society and its
global prestige.

Your Class and the TIEMBA Community

During the programme, you will learn as much
from the cultural, geographical and professional
diversity of your classmates as from the worldclass Tsinghua and INSEAD faculty. You will
forge close bonds that will never be broken.
Each class organises its network in a different
way, but so far all have stayed in close contact
and hold regular informal reunions, as well as
returning to Tsinghua and INSEAD for official
TIEMBA alumni events.
All alumni are invited back to the elective
courses each year, which has helped to forge
new links and create a wider, multi-class
TIEMBA community.

24 Tsinghua-INSEAD EMBA

INSEAD Alumni Association

INSEADs 45,000-plus alumni are present
in more than 170 countries and the INSEAD
Alumni Association is a highly active network
with 43 individual national associations. TIEMBA
graduates tend to form particularly close
links with alumni of INSEADs Global EMBA,
as the two programmes come together during
the elective courses for a shared learning

Our class became

incredibly close
and we even have
a programme of
renunion events
until 2026.

Before the programme, I was thinking of

leaving my corporate career to work in outdoor
pursuits, which is my personal passion. But
thanks to the TIEMBA, Ive found a way to do
both! I set up a company with a friend to bring
Via Ferrata (a form of safe mountain-climbing)
to China.

As for my own future, Ive finally given up

worrying. The TIEMBA has taught me that, as
long as Im leading a great group of people
who are creating value and having fun, I can go
with the flow.

I also used my love of the outdoors in my role

as class social representative. We hiked the
Great Wall in China and also chartered a yacht
to go around the islands in Singapore. Our class
became incredibly close and we even have a
programme of reunion events until 2026.

Winning Your Employers Support

Whether or not you receive financial support

for the TIEMBA from your employer, there is
no doubt you will need your organisations
backing in terms of time, flexibility and help
with company-specific assignments. In return,
the TIEMBA offers a considerable return on

Immediate Application and Cascading

of Learning
During each TIEMBA module you will be
exposed to the latest business concepts and
cutting-edge research. You will acquire new
conceptual tools, approaches and insights. And
the next Monday morning, you will be able to
apply them at work, as well as cascading your
learning through your team and colleagues
to the wider organisation.

26 Tsinghua-INSEAD EMBA

In-depth Analysis Through Reflection

Papers and Your Thesis
For the Key Management Challenge courses,
you will have to write reflection papers,
exploring the interaction (or clash) between
business theory and reality, as you try to
implement and test new ideas at work. Your
final thesis is a chance to go even deeper by
bringing a real-world business problem into the
classroom for full analysis. As a result, you have
the opportunity to act as a valuable internal
consultant and make a significant contribution
to the companys goals.

You: A Better Leader, a Stronger

Most important of all, the TIEMBA represents
a major investment in your organisations
leadership pipeline by rewarding and
developing you. In particular, the Leadership
Development Programme delivers instant gains
by nurturing leadership skills that you apply
after each module. Furthermore, the tailored
career support will help you transition into the
right roles in the right place at the right time.
