Conducting Business in Chile (CMIX)
Head of Marketing, XMAX and Blockchain Entrepreneur
I am a 2016 Tsinghua MBA student with a master’s degree from the University of St Andrews, Scotland and a B.A. from the Beijing Foreign Studies University. With 11 years’ team management experience, I focused on marketing and business development for fast growing IT companies covering education, mental healthcare, environment and finance industries. Right now, I am head of marketing and public relations in XMAX foundation (an entertainment startup), starting my new adventure in Blockchain technology.
The first-hand knowledge, the unforgettable experience, together with the life-long friendship with the Chilean buddies made the whole trip more than amazing!”
In the past, I have joined different kinds of overseas exchange programs for students in the US and UK, and I have personally organized different overseas group industrial visits for governments in South Korea and South Africa. Out of all those experiences, I think C-MIX in Chile is so far the best program I have ever participated in! The first-hand knowledge, the unforgettable experience, together with the life-long friendship with the Chilean buddies made the whole trip more than amazing!
Like many exchange programs, C-MIX also includes lectures on various MBA topics. But unlike most other programs, not only prestigious professors but also professionals or even diplomats were our surprising lecturers in Chile. Since Chile is so far away and different from China, the topics covered in the lectures themselves can be very engaging and entertaining.
Before our departure, we were well equipped with the basic knowledge of Chile. And while we were there, the visits to the local giant companies of different industries ignited our curiosity of this faraway land again! From the classrooms to the factories, our eyes were opened to how this resourceful country competes with world-class agriculture like nowhere else in the world.
For me, the highlight of the program is the mix of the Chilean and Chinese MBA groups, not only for studying but also in life. During the trip, we were put into mixed groups. From working on a program together to exploring our Chilean buddies’ everyday lives, this short trip made a long-term impact on us all. The activities out of class actually empowered us more! If I have another chance, I would definitely go back to Chile for the friends, food, and wine!”
