"I study MicroFinance. This is a huge growth industry. It’s a significant industry in China. To come here and work locally on the ground where I can interview people directly and become really knowledgeable about the programs and complete my research studies is a great opportunity.

Many of the PhD students have the opportunity to teach if they would like to do so. I’ve taught economics, organizational behaviour and strategic management. That’s important as that’s part of developing academic career to have those skills. It’s also a great way to network and get to know people and to learn more, because most of the student body is Chinese. So it’s part of the learning and the adventure. In terms of the role of the Business School, the unique proposition of the campus in terms of being Chinese and being British, it has the advantages of east and west that an international scholar might seek out in terms of who the faculty are, the opportunity to publish, the best journals and even media interests."
