Kevina, Executive MBA

“I rotated to Shanghai in June 2012. I met MBA students from all over the world. I am very interested in emerging markets and I am interested in developing my career in Asia/China. I was greatly impressed by the vibe in the city and further convinced about the 'China power-house'. All in all it was a very rich experience.”
