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.
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.
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.
