Jing Zhang (Cherry), Master's in Logistics Management
"After my graduation from Logistics management, I have been working in the logistics field for over 10 years, also in different countries. When I came across this program, I felt it is the time to move forward and develop myself further. The program turned out to be so well-planned, that all it needs from a student is his/her personal commitment. There are plenty of assignments that keep us busy, however we are never left alone. The faculty members are always with us, and they pour all their hearts into the program and give us excellent support whenever we need. Although a 9-month Master’s program sounds impossible, they make it possible for us. This journey is short and definitely not easy. It requires commitment, real efforts and a little bit of sisu! But the results are rewarding".
