During the 18 years working mainly in the HR field, I always want to learn something new and different. Sitting in the management meetings of my company, I sometimes find it is difficult for me to catch up with the team's discussion, especially when people talk about trade. For not being left behind, I grab the opportunity to earn my seat in this program.
Being known as the program by employers and for employers, the Master Global Trade gives me a great opportunity to start my learning journey in trade across various industries. I believe I will not only gain applicable knowledge but also be shared best practices in global trade from reputable lecturers and industry guest speakers. And with the diverse scholars' cultures and backgrounds, this cohort also makes me extremely excited to join to build my professional network.
I am sincerely honored to have been selected as a recipient of the Hinrich Foundation scholarship. I will make the most of my learning to open my pathways to global trade, and be a part of the Alumni Association for supporting the next cohort in this journey.
