When I was an undergraduate studying Chemistry, I choose Economics as a second major because I was interested in how people's lives are affected by the economy, not knowing (or caring) much about where it would take me. In the following years pursuing my Ph. D. degree in Chemistry and doing my postdoc, I gradually discovered that my biggest desire is to bring advanced technologies to real people’s daily life. In my later careers I realized that business practice and entrepreneurship are the bridge that brings technologies to people’s welfare. I chose the Weekend MBA Program at Ross because it equips me with business, management, entrepreneurship and operation skills by world-class training, and still allows me to apply my learning to my current job in R&D and project management.
