Hi all I am writing to share a bit about my experiences at Tsinghua’s GMBA program. I’m originally from the United States, and am due to graduate from Tsinghua in 2018. Aside from the school’s famed history and brand status in China, there are a few key points which stand out about the program.

First, perhaps the most valuable part of the experience is creating the tight-knit community between the local and the international students. It is one thing to read about cases in Chinese business situations, but it is another thing to work 80-hour weeks on class projects with local students in our class projects. You not only bond with the local students through suffering through countless nights with Excel and Powerpoints, but you understand and embody the Chinese work culture much more than if you were to attend business school elsewhere. The diversity of local experiences the local students bring to the table, from construction to consulting to finance to interior design, all add to an unique experience.

Second, there is an interesting mix of hard and soft skills emphasized in the program, reflective of what is needed in a Chinese business environment. Take for example the business ethics class, a required course that is more of an open-ended forum for students to relate to an ethical case every week using their previous work experiences, debate is encouraged and reflection, rather than a right or wrong answer, is the goal.

Finally, the school’s close ties with its alumni network. The booming PE industry in China is hiring many students from Tsinghua who often do not want to go through the traditional IBD route. A significant number of my classmates have found internships with local and international funds around China, often through the strong alumni network established by the school throughout the years. For those who are interested in a nontraditional path to buy-side finance, Tsinghua is the place to be.
