Student testimonials
I can honestly say that you are one of the best professors I have had. Your insight and your careful, thoughtful explanation made a complex subject easy to understand. It is the first time I have heard a foreign professor impart fair comments on China's past, present and future.

When I applied to REMBA, I was initially rejected ......I sent you a personal letter and asked you to reconsider and I will never forget your response, "Fortune favors the bold.... see you at the week in residence.” You took a chance on me.
6 years after graduation, I was named Vice President of Operations at my company. I owe much of my success to you and the entire REMBA family. The skills I learned allowed me to be "bold". To take the plunge into that next challenge, suggest things that were outside the status quo, to refer back to my cohort and to my lessons for advice and guidance.

It all started with you. You took a chance on me and gave me the opportunity, then you and your program provided the knowledge that I needed to be successful. I am eternally grateful and hope you continue to be an educator and mentor for a long time.
