What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? Courses about Marketing and Analysis

If you could have lunch with one person (living or dead), who would it be? Picasso. I have long been a big fan of the ‘artist’ Picasso and the genre he led. While at the same time, I also appreciate Picasso as a master of communication who marketed himself through advanced approaches rather than waiting to be discovered. As a marketing student who is also an art lover, I believe that relying merely on products while neglecting the role of communication, a business is likely to lose its share in the market. Therefore, I really want to talk to Picasso to learn from his excellent marketing strategies.

If you had to describe yourself in three words, they would be…

Peaceful, Introvert, Open-minded
