Reflections

Fuqua’s focus on teamwork is more than just a talking point—it’s a way of life. As students, we learn that many minds are stronger than the strongest individual mind, and we support each other to achieve great things. For example, some of my peers voluntarily organize and lead review sessions to help their fellow classmates because at Fuqua, teamwork is the core of our DNA.

Before Fuqua

I am the CEO of a Hong Kong consulting company that I established along with my partners. We help companies from mainland China go public in Hong Kong or complete international mergers and acquisitions.

After Fuqua

In the long run, I’d like to grow my current business to develop global distribution channels and incorporate marketing and branding expertise and design and creative capabilities. In the short term, I hope to use what I’ve learned at Fuqua to broaden my insight in different types of business in different countries while continuing to learn from others and hear their firsthand experiences in running successful companies.

Advice

Take classes that are outside of your comfort zone, participate in activities you never considered before, and introduce yourself to your peers so you can learn about and from their different backgrounds. Pushing your boundaries can serve a purpose both socially and academically by exposing you to new ideas and ways of thinking.
