Q1. Please use 3 words to describe your life in your residing city.

Life in Shanghai: Familiar. New. Exciting.

There are similar cultures in Taipei, Hong Kong and Shanghai, but also different ways of life. With a year of study, internships, as well as life experiences in CUHK, I quickly adapted to life in Shanghai.


Q2. What is the one thing you miss from your studies at the CUHK Business School?

The campus life at CUHK is what I miss the most. After six years of work, I still cherish my student life very much. I loved the hustle and bustle of the Town Centre classroom in Central, as well as the quiet environment of the Shatin campus.


Q3. What did you learn in the CUHK Business School which has impacted your life?

Time planning and management is an important lesson I learned at the CUHK Business School. I needed to do internships, take classes, study (especially finance courses unfamiliar to me), join networking events and talks. I learnt to create the greatest value in a limited time and develop deep friendships with classmates.


Q4. Which industry do you see strong business potential in your residing city?

I think the integration of online and offline teaching has strong business potential. With the development of digital technology, e-commerce and video games, the next trend will see the transfer of educational resources (including corporate training) to virtual and real integration.
