The history of executive education at Tsinghua University can be traced back to 1981, when the Department of Economics and Management, the predecessor of

the School of Economics and Management, set up a pioneer management program for leaders of major SOE across the country. From then on, the School has led managers to advance with the transition and globalization process in the world's most dynamic economic system, resulting in the school enjoying high prestige on intellectual innovation and practical faith both among academic circles and the business society.
