Autumn, wherever it is, always has something to recommend itself. Unlike famous flowers which are most attractive when half opening, good wine which is most tempting when one is half drunk, autumn, however, is best appreciated in its entirety. During this glorious season, Please join me to review what has wonderfully happened at The University of Manchester China Centre.
Held by the Office of Shanghai Ethical and Cultural Building Committee and Shanghai Women’s Federation, I’m very delighted to be awarded 2019 Women Leadership Award as outstanding women in education industry. In the past 11 years, I’ve been devoted myself to the integrated development of Sino-UK education, promoting cultural exchanges and fulfilling our social responsibilities. Adhering to the ethos no barriers, no boundaries, with the global reputation for quality and accessible learning, The University of Manchester China Centre will launch a series of online and blended learning courses including MSc International Fashion Marketing and MSc Financial Management. Combined with our profound practical experience of part-time education, we determine to bring more diversified higher education platform to more local elites with global visions.
