Praise from a Former Student

Jennifer Liu Yuhan

Assistant to the President at

Class of 2010

“I feel very lucky to have been able to attend LNU-MSU College of International Business. The four wonderful years there gave me many gifts. My English improved dramatically thanks to my teachers who encouraged me to speak, from one word, one sentence, one paragraph, to finally, a full in-class presentation. My gifts were not as much about knowledge, but much more about building my confidence and ability. I learned not only what was in the books, but how to be a success in the real world. I even attended a meeting with a Chinese company president to talk about the importance of communication. This would never happen in a common Chinese university. I am so grateful for the unique educational experience given to me at LNU-MSU. Thank you Dean Dong, the staff and all my dear teachers.”
