What: Strategy Execution
Where: China Europe International Business School

"The time I spend in China allowed me to deepen my understanding of its place in globalisation. This appreciation, which I believe can only be gained through spending time in China, has shown me their perspective on their unique challenges. This is my strongest takeaway from the trip.

The Chinese people are extremely friendly and this made my time in China, despite the language barrier, memorable.

Extending my trip to become a tourist in both Shanghai and Beijing gave an insight into Chinese culture that I truly enjoyed. Taking every opportunity to endulge in street food, from donkey to dumplings and everything in between."
