If HSBC is “the world’s local bank”, then MGPE would be “the world’s local programme.”
Being a China news reporter for over a decade, I treasured my privilege to witness and report China’s latest development in political frontline and international arenas. Accumulated years of dynamic growth and social unrests, my exciting China experience created choking and unresolved resonance in my mind with questions piling up, and these knots needed to be untied one by one.
Thanks for the guidance of world-class professors and lecturers in MGPE programme, I, born in Hong Kong, work in Mainland, now being equipped to think in global manner. The programme’s strong global academic groundwork as well as sophisticated and updated China’s elements strummed the vital key to resolve the knowledge tension notes in my inner score.
From the moment I took up this programme until the moment I put it down, I was convulsed with inspirations.
Welcome to the world’s local programme!
As a part-time student who has graduated for years, re-adaptation to campus life was once my big concern. My two years of study with MGPE turned out to be a fulfilling experience far beyond my expectation.
The diversified modes of study including the unforgettable meeting with leaders of the National League for Democracy who co-founded the party with Aung San Suu Kyi in Myanmar enabled me to link theoretical learning to real life context and engage in contacts with people and organisations unlikely had I not taken this master programme.
The course instructors, all of whom are renowned experts in academia and different professions from all around the world, are friendly and always ready to render support to students. Through the inter-disciplinary course design and frequent interactions with teachers and classmates from diverse backgrounds, I gained a lot of new insights and enhanced my analytical skills to better equip myself in both work and study.
Apart from curriculum, I built precious friendship with classmates of different nationalities from Scandinavia to Latin America and from Great Lakes to Malacca Strait that quite matched the global nature of this programme.
Now that the two-year journey formally came to an end, I can say the time and effort that I have spent: relax less, play less, sleep less, all the white hair and panda eyes… read more, think more, write more, all the working hard… are all worthy. The MGPE programme reignited my passion to study and determination to pursuing research degree. Treasuring all I gained here in terms of knowledge, fellowship, personal growth and most of all, a sense of new life.
What a thankful and unforgettable journey!
I left university almost 30 years ago before I joined the MGPE programme, but age is not an issue if you are still hungry for knowledge. The course is the key to unlock the mysteries of global affairs, providing me with the necessary tools to understand the world's chaos, and affording me the ability to formulate my own interpretations. Yet, the MGPE programme is more than just knowledge fulfillment; it allows me to re-live the happy moments of university life. There is a saying that you will not meet any genuine friends once you started working. For a businessman like myself, I can say there is certain truth in the statement. I am very grateful that the MGPE experience has provided me with a second chance to meet new friends, friends as far as from Brazil, Canada, Chile, Denmark, Germany, Holland and Sweden; friends as near as from Laos and Singapore; and friends as close as from China and Hong Kong. I never expected I could gain so much from the programme.
Looking back, I am just glad that I had taken the step that has broaden my horizon both academically and socially, a step that has inspired me to pursue further research study in the field of International Relations. It is an understatement to say the MGPE experience has left many happy memories, it is more important than that, it has become part of my life.
