Where our graduates go

Others have continued their studies at renowned universities around the world such as The Universities of Cambridge and Oxford in the United Kingdom, Stanford and Columbia Universities in the USA and the University of Sydney in Australia. 
I now work for TECCO Ltd a trading company that sources products from in and around Ningbo to sell to customers in Europe. It’s a really broad job, which requires cultural understanding of both Europe and China, as well as knowledge of how business and trade works.
