"When I received the offer, I felt extremely excited because I was eager to gain ths opportunity, in particular, under a keen competition among a group of outstanding candidates. I join this programme because I want to improve my sense of entrepreneurship and innovation and obtain solid knowledge of business in order to learn how to start a company and become a successful businessman. Also, studying in a global environment will force me to be open-minded to accept different views and ideas. Although I did not study some courses such as big data analysis and technology before, I will try my best to overcome it."
