"The Tsinghua-MIT MBA Program began 19 years ago and the Program has graduated over 1,600 future managers educated to recognize vital areas of opportunity including sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship, which are needed to move the Chinese economy forward. The MIT China Management education Program has trained over 200 Chinese business faculty at MIT Sloan, influenced MBA curricula in China, and provided a model for business schools throughout the country. These collaborative efforts have been enormously successful, producing Global MBA graduates who have assumed positions in multinational companies or started their own businesses.
We are committed to on-going support of the program at Tsinghua SEM, ensuring that Global MBA students continue to gain the skills necessary to navigate and succeed in a complex global economy. Going forward, we look to a continued close collaboration between Tsinghua and MIT. We will continue our cooperation among students and faculty, and engage in some new activities. We will pursue new research opportunities together, and work together to convene thought leaders in China around economic and management topics of great importance. And, in collaboration, we will explore and experiment with new kinds of ways to have impact in China, on China-U.S. relationships, and on China’s continuing growth as a leader in the world."
