I study to learn the programming from my 3rd grade. So it is the major hobbies, even I don’t have too much hands-on coding work in my daily work, but I still like to learn the new technology and apply to some demos in my spare time.

I’m Kevin Miao, Chinese Name as Zhiqiang MIAO. It has been a great honor and fantastic life journey being with Manchester Business School for around three years. I have been planning to pursue a Global MBA degree since the 3rd year of the graduation from my Bachelor’s degree of Industrial Trade Engineering, however, it took me a quite a long time to find one globally well-recognized program while I could continue my work in professional development. I’ve moved around several largest metropolitan cities of China including Beijing, Shenzhen and Shanghai etc. where I took splendid adventures in several global Fortune 500 listed multinational companies such as Panasonic, Philips, GE, Nokia and Qualcomm etc.
As of today, it is my fourth semester of MBA program. I am glad that I made the decision choosing Manchester for my MBA study. Really impressed by its level of international student background and diversity. Since July 2016 enrollment I have learnt and experienced much more than I could had ever imagined. Not only at academic side, I think we all agree that networking is equally important for MBA students, and both are available with MBS. There are so many talented, incredible people surrounded for me to learn from. Being influenced and inspired by western professors’ insights and opinions through workshop. Debating, argument, and the joy are words I would use to describe those past workshops I have joined. Besides, the course structure is well designed and balanced between individual & group work, which is suitable for part-time students.

AMBS teaching methods ”learning by doing” provided me first-hand experience in consulting practice like Not-for-Profits project worked with Bolton YMCA to explore hospitality business opportunity, UK consulting projects commissioned by Cisco to model and evaluate social and economic impact brought by different technologies in difference adoption curves, etc. The experience had helped in landing offers from consulting firms as well as my current company.
Despite long distance between Kunshan and Shanghai, Michail arrived in time at the UoM China Centre. It was already evening time. We started our interview immediately. Michail came all the way from Greece and it’s been already the fourth year for Michail in China. We wonder the reasons he came to China and study the MBA at the UoM.
