Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA Programme

The Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA course structure is designed to help you transition from your current specialization-dependent management role to a more organisation-wide approach to problem solving. The programme is set up to expand on your experience with business fundamentals, as well as delve into your areas of interest with a combination of formal lessons and practical simulations. A final thesis project will allow you to weave together all the elements you have learned, accounting for 20% of your final grade.


Admissions Requirements

Your application must include the following documents in order to be considered a valid application:

Application Form:

You may submit your application through Tsinghua or complete INSEAD's online application form. Your application will be evaluated equally by either admissions office.

Letters of Reference:

Applicants are required to submit the testimony of two referees, (written in English)from individuals qualified to comment about your professional achievements and your career potential. These are not freehand letters, but online forms where your strengths will be ranked and specific open-ended questions will be posed. These forms are available via links included in your application. At least one of the letters should be written by a direct supervisor. The choice of the second referee is at your discretion, but he or she should be someone who can speak to your potential.

Official Transcripts:

Applicants are required to attach scanned copies of the official transcripts of their relevant degrees and diplomas in the Supporting Documents section of the online application form. Should applicants be admitted, copies of transcripts must be officially certified and sent to our Admissions Office. Certification and submission can be done on any campus. Please coordinate this with a marketing or admissions personnel.
