Program Description:

Sotheby’s Institute of Art – NY offers an MA in Art Business in an articulated program with Tsinghua University in Beijing. Tsinghua is, one of China’s pre-eminent institutions of higher learning and ranks among the most distinguished universities in Asia. The curriculum is offered in an executive education format consisting of seven intensely-taught modules of approximately 6 – 10 days each, beginning in China and then, over a period of approximately two years,  traveling to major western capitals of art and commerce. The program concludes with the submission and successful review of a master’s thesis. Fluency in written and spoken Mandarin Chinese is required for admission as is advanced reading competency in English.

As a 100-year old research university, Tsinghua University is regarded as the top higher education institution in China. The Academy of Arts and Design (AAD)is the successor institution to the Central Academy of Arts and Design, which was established in 1956 to meet the country’s demand for art and design professionals. In November 1999, it was merged into Tsinghua University as AAD, opening up a new chapter to develop the art and design discipline in a comprehensive university. The School of Economics and Management (SEM) was founded in 1984 with the mission to “advance knowledge and cultivate leaders for China and the world.” SEM trains over 7,000 senior executives in the professional non-degree programs as well as 4,000 students in the undergraduate, master's, doctoral, MBA and EMBA degree programs. SEM is the first school in China to attain both AACSB and EQUIS accreditations.
