Professor Zhang Wubao extended his congratulation to these students. He underlined the importance of international language as a communication media in this globalized world, especially the international business English. He suggested that the students must be equipped with the capability of using international business English so as to become future management talents. He put forward two requirements for students. First, be a great person. That means the fine cultural traditions of China, such as gratitude and honesty need to be carried forward. Second, do great things. The students shall never tell lies or deceive people, avoid temptations and stay true to their original intentions.

On behalf of the new students, Li Yanyu shared his thoughts on why he wanted to study the MBA program at GDUFS. There were three reasons: cultural capital, thinking model and choice. He graduated from GDUFS with a bachelor degree, and it was GDUFS that cultivated him as a practical talent. Now, he is a middle-level manager at an enterprise. When he decided to improve his knowledge and capabilities, the Alma Mater just came to his mind. That’s why he chose to return to the university to receive English immersion education in order to improve himself.
