Mr. Mei-Wei Cheng, former CEO and President of Siemens China, explained how the ability to adapt to change can make a difference. He also emphasised the importance of being confident, yet understanding one’s strengths and weaknesses. “Have confidence in yourself, accept challenges without fear of failure; you will have some wonderful adventures and can persevere to eventual success,” he said.

“I always wanted to make a difference, and now after graduating I have that power,” said MBA 2012 graduate Urvash Singh in his commencement address. He encouraged his classmates to stand up and look at each other’s faces. “These are the people who will help you when you need it,” he said. An MBA is a personal journey, said MBA 2012 graduate Sun Wei in her address. “Along the way, we were stimulated, challenged and exposed to things that were not in our initial plan,” she said.
