By creating a track of courses taught by Tsinghua SEM on the model of the 3 A12 month entrepreneurship track of the HEC MBA, the program aims to provide the foundation for educating women entrepreneurs with a global perspective. With the help of HEC faculty members, the primary objective of the program is to develop women leaders in China to enhance their participation in the development of China. As a second objective, Tsinghua SEM and HEC will share expertise in leadership and entrepreneurship to further develop business education in these fields.

The specific program activities that will result from this partnership include the creation of an Entrepreneurship Track Program for Chinese women to become entrepreneurs. This certificate program will train underserved Chinese women who aspire to or currently operate their own business, aiming to provide them with the integrated entrepreneurial and managerial education with a global perspective.

Through 10,000 Women, Goldman Sachs is committing $100 million to support partnerships with universities and development organizations to provide a generation of women in under-served areas around the world with a business and management education. In the process, these partnerships will help future generations of entrepreneurs and managers by strengthening the underlying quality and capacity of business education through professor training and the development of innovative curricula and locally relevant case studies.

aWe are honored to be a part of Goldman Sachs 10000 Women Initiative. In partnership with Tsinghua SEM, we will create an Entrepreneurship Track Program to help deserving Chinese women entrepreneurs develop knowledge, skills and networks necessary to create innovative and sustainable business in China. Our credo aThe more you know, the more you darea emphasizes the entrepreneurship spirit instilled by its programsa said ValArie Gauthier, Associate Dean of the MBA Program.
