Global Business Journalism is, at its core, global.


Aspiring journalists from around the world come the acclaimed program at Tsinghua University to learn international business and the latest tools in journalism. But Tsinghua School of Journalism and Communication is also constantly reaching out to expand our network of global partners. This allows for expanded exchanges of students, faculty and research. It's a virtuous circle that helps our school and our students.


Global Business Journalism Co-Director Min Hang and Chen Changfeng, executive dean of the Tsinghua School of Journalism and Communication, traveled to northern Thailand in early November to cement a partnership with Chiang Mai University.


This cross-cultural relationship will deepen the international network that benefits Global Business Journalism students, said GBJ Co-Director Rick Dunham.


"We already are the top English-language graduate journalism program in Asia," Professor Dunham said. "Our partnerships bring top scholars from around the world to speak on the Tsinghua campus. This enables Global Business Journalism students to gain additional perspectives and expertise from many cultures during their time in Beijing."
