As the first English EMBA programme in the Chinese mainland to award dual degrees with a global orientation, Tsinghua-INSEAD EMBA (TIEMBA) has been at the forefront of the Financial Times Global EMBA Top 100 List and QS joint programme ranking  for many consecutive years. This year TIEMBA once again claimed the third globally.
