Aside from your classmates, what was the key programming that led you to choose this business school and why was it so important to you? The wide range of electives around entrepreneurship and China’s digital development.

What course, club or activity excites you the most? The Student Council. As the elected president, I appreciate being permitted to impart a lasting impact on the school that goes beyond my batch of students, propelling it a little further towards the digital and sustainable future of tomorrow.

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: Everyone in my company, from owners to accounting, warehousing, logistics, or sales, loves the ERP I worked so hard on. They know and feel that it facilitates them to do their best work.

What is one thing you have recently read, watched, or listened to that you would highly recommend to prospective MBAs? Why? Stay on top of world events through publications like The Financial Times and The Economist. Without a great understanding of where we were and where we are, we cannot begin to forecast where we are going.

What advice would you give to help potential applicants gain admission into your school’s MBA program? Make use of the resources given to you during admissions – the Beyond Borders Camp, observing a lecture, or having lunch with a student ambassador. Those are great entries to let you get to know the programme and its people.
