The Cornell-Tsinghua program is designed for those professionals who don’t want to leave China, who wants to place the China market.

As their career focus even though they still want to have global perspective.
That's why they value the addition of Tsinghua or the combination of the Tsinghua and Cornell degrees.
In some way, we have to provide the knowledge needed for our students to excel in the China market, especially in the financial industry.

China’s regulations and policies in financial industries are very different from those in the US.
And for that reason, we count on our colleagues in the Tsinghua program to take care of the needs in this domain.
However, our students also need to understand the markets outside of China because of the trend of globalization of Chinese firms.
For that reason, the professors' contents on the Johnson side will focus more on this side of this knowledge.
About how the knowledge the Chinese firms would need to know when they go global.
