Alumni's Voice

"I had a great time during my two years at Tsinghua. The curriculum was diverse and required us to actively participate in various projects. Looking back, the diversity and multiculturality of our group of students was a very good preparation to a career in multinational companies. I keep contact with many alumni from the GM master and many of us remains friends to this day."

Matthieu, from France


"I and my fellow students were able to put in place many of the concepts and theories learned in university. The fact that the content taught in university truly finds its way into real life and companies is really relieving. The industry tour was some kind of exploration of China's scenes and locations showing the unlimited dimensions and growth potential of this country. For me personally it was the opportunity to build personal channels to teachers and professors of Tsinghua University. I truly hope will be a very good basis for deepened contact in personal and business in the years coming."

Paul, from Germany
