Tsing Hua IMBA good or bad?


blair
AoZaoMian, very much appreciate your sharing here .... For the IMBA, (1)may I know if the working experience is critically important for the selection process? (2)and I am considering if there is a higher chance to apply as an International student rather than my Chinese residency. (*as my mum is foreigner; I got dual citizenship). (3)What is the selection process involved? (4) How about the GMAT grade? Please advise and assist.

well, i heard that in china it is always better to apply as an international student - the local students are in fierce compatition with each other, and are also expected to "bring more" with them then an international student.

Hi blair,

As a member of the Tsinghua IMBA student ambassador program, I thought I'd offer you my 2 cents on the queries you have.

(1) While working experience is important as a criteria for the selection process, it isn't the determining factor. The application officially requires 2 years of work experience, but I have seen current students supplement 1 year work experience with previous internships. Remember, the admissions board will look at a combination of your GMAT score, previous academic performance, application essays as well as the interview in determining your acceptance to the program.

(2) The International MBA program is taught completely in English and the class consists of 50% international students (Germany, Italy, USA, Britain etc) and 50% local students. This provides a pretty colorful group of students, in addition, if your mandarin is strong enough you have the option to select electives taught in Chinese starting your 2nd semester. The Full-time MBA is taught in Chinese and consists of 100% local students (though we have a few internationals taking this route this year). Since you have dual citizenship, the important thing is which experience you think most closely fits your objectives in getting an MBA.

(3) Details given above in answer to (1)...

(4) The average GMAT scores for the program is 650 with the official requirement being 600, though note that they will consider lower scores for acceptance as the admissions board really looks at the complete application package rather than any single item.

Hope the above answers the questions you have, if you (or anyone reading this post) have any further questions feel free to post here, we will be monitoring on this site regularly to answer any further queries as they appear.

Another important note is that the application deadline is coming up on 15-March 2010. For further info on the application package as well as the program, you may refer to the links below:
