Nigel Banister, Chief Global Officer, Manchester Business School
Many congratulations to the those graduates from our collaborative programme. We are proud of you not only for completing a world class Manchester MBA alongside equally demanding Tongji studies but as our pioneers in Shanghai. Welcome to the Manchester alumni family and may I wish you every success in your business career.
HUO Jiazhen, Dean of SEM, Tongji University
Tongji University is a century-old comprehensive university in China while the University of Manchester is also a top-ranked university in UK with its profound academic history. Tongji-Manchester Dual-Degree MBA integrates the academic advantages of both two schools and aims at empowering tomorrow's business elite. Since 2009, this programme has been growing for over four years. And now we have our first group students who, with unflagging efforts, completed their study and successfully graduated. Moreover, I would also like to express our sincere gratitude to our partner-Manchester Business School.
There's an old Chinese saying goes, how much you have tillage, how much you will gain harvest. I believe all that you've really got from your study in Tongji are not only academic knowledge, but also the capability to apply innovative thinking and global perspective to your practical work. And I wish that all of you will have a bright future!
Elaine Ferneley, MBA Director, Manchester Business School
On behalf of Manchester Business School I would like to congratulate you upon the completion of your MBA. Studying for a MBA at the same time as undertaking work commitments and maintaining family relationships is exceptionally hard. Our mission is transforming your life through education and I am confident that the experience you have gained whilst studying on our collaborative MBS/Tongji MBA programme has been transformative. I wish you every success in the future and please remember that MBS and Tongji are always here to support you.
WANG Guangbin, Deputy Dean of SEM, Tongji University

As you sow with efforts, so shall you reap in smile. Today's efforts are stepping stones of tomorrow's success. I'm proud of you and I wish you a bright future and a brilliant career!
