Kristina Xie a Duke Fuqua student blogger in the Master of Management Studies: Duke Kunshan program

I was born and raised in New York City and in 2016 graduated from Trinity College, a small liberal arts school in Hartford, Connecticut. My Bachelor’s degree from Trinity is in International Studies and Chinese, and during my time there I got the opportunity to travel abroad and be exposed to cultures vastly different from mine.

I applied to the MMS: DKU program because of my interest in studying business fundamentals in a globalized economy. The cross-cultural exchange and ability to learn about different industries appealed to me since I have dreams of working for a multinational company in the financial services sector. Diversification is not only applicable to investment portfolios to mitigate risk but also to our self-awareness of the world. MMS: DKU allows students to leverage the Fuqua culture of teamwork and collaboration in a totally new and exciting campus in Kunshan.
