Voice of Our Alumni
CHEN Jiao: Award for Outstanding Graduate
Tongji-Manchester Dual Degree MBA program is the best commitment we have made to our professional lives. It has provided networks with equally ambitious professionals. The practical approach ensured a thorough grounding in business theory, and the opportunity to test the theories in our workplace. I would get frightened when workshops or exams were getting close and I never gained so much knowledge so quickly in my life. But now, at the end of this journey, I have discovered that all these fears have gone. I have a stronger will, and I am more disciplined than ever expected. I believe that is what is called “personal growth”, the painful process of breaking out of one’s shell and becoming better.
Even though we did not take a break from society, we are now better prepared to face it. We believe we are free to succeed but it takes hardship and a dream to achieve success. Education is a lifelong journey and we are ready to challenge convention, offer new ideas, and relentlessly strive for improvement. And we will always remember where we came from, that is Tongji University---the place that helped to shape us.
