As one of the first economics and management schools in China, Tsinghua SEM is now among the premier schools in China and in Asia. The School was established in 1984. Professor Zhu Rongji is the founding dean of the School who later became the fifth Premier of the People’s Republic of China. The School's current dean is Professor Qian Yingyi.
Building a world-class economics and management school is a challenging and long term goal for everybody at Tsinghua School of Economics and Management ("Tsinghua SEM").
To reach this goal, we will cultivate a high level, international faculty, develop influential degree and non-degree educational programs, carry out research that both meets international academic standards and yet retains a close relevance to the realities of present-day China. We will attract highly talented and diversified students, establish a close relationship with our alumni and create an active social network, secure a solid financial foundation and build a supportive infrastructure.
Our future as a world-class economics and management school rests on our ability to combine all of these elements; We shall promote the spirit of Tsinghua SEM by "Always Pursuing Excellence, Always Valuing Action over Words". With our roots planted solidly on the ground, we will strive to reach this lofty vision.
Tsinghua SEM attaches great importance to international cooperation, which is regarded as an integral part of the school’s development.
