How to apply for academic credit.
The capital of the People’s Republic of China is a huge metropolis – one of history’s great cities and modernising at a frenetic pace. However, the city’s grid-like design makes it relatively easy to find your way around. Its most famous attraction is the ancient Forbidden City and it has five other UNESCO World Heritage sites. There are thousands of affordable eateries and a growing bar and cafe scene. The summers are pleasant, but the winter months can be freezing and the city is occasionally hit by dust and storms that blow in from the desert and can be unpleasant.
Tsinghua’s University’s business study program is consistently ranked among China’s best course offerings. The PBC School of Finance was founded in March of 2012 and with the establishment of the School, the culmination of the collaboration between the People’s Bank of China (China’s central bank) and Tsinghua University was cemented. Study trips to financial institutions give attendees first-hand information regarding how markets function in China and how China’s unique business environment has influenced the financial industry. Coupled with cultural events and sightseeing tours, you also experience the real China as one of the most dynamic and promising economies in today’s world.
Accommodation is available at the School Guest house.
