The MSM-Finance and MBA double degree program is jointly created by Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University and the School of Economics and Management (SEM) at Tongji University. It is the first master’s degree in finance program, by a world-class U.S. university, offered in mainland China. This innovative program, taught in Shanghai and Cleveland, provides students with both the depth of knowledge in finance and the breadth of general management skills. Graduates come away with a global way of thinking and latest insights on the Asian financial market.
This part-time program may be completed in five semesters and no longer than five years. Upon graduation students will obtain both the Master of Science in Management-Finance degree from Weatherhead and the MBA degree from Tongji SEM.
Is This Program Right for Me?
As the market becomes more sophisticated and more globally-integrated than ever, it is vitally important for financial managers at all levels to have both types of skills – in-depth financial knowledge as well as general management skills. With this in mind, our progressive double degree program is designed to balance the technical dimension and managerial practice of finance in a way that is not usually achieved in general MBA programs. Students will be taught by world-renowned faculty from two highly-rated business schools in two dynamic financial centers. Students are offered the opportunity to deepen and broaden their understanding of global finance through lectures, case discussions, executive speaker sessions, company visits and an abroad residency study.
This program is right for you if you want to become a well-rounded finance professional who does not only understand the market and instruments, but is able to see future issues in order to make important finance decisions. We seek to bring students across diverse backgrounds together to cultivate different streams of thoughts. We encourage you to learn more about us and to take advantage of this career-enhancing learning experience!
