LANGLEY – Nine students came from Tianjin, China, to stand alongside fellow graduates at Trinity Western University’s School of Graduate Studies commencement ceremony Nov. 1. Among the students here to celebrate their achievement as the first-ever graduating class from TWU’s Great Wall MBA was valedictorian Artice Xie.
"The graduation ceremony was a spiritual, meaningful, and memorable experience," said Xie. "It has been exciting to see the excellent graduates in different majors being awarded the degree on the stage, and fortunately I was one of them to celebrate our achievements with the TWU faculty, alumni, and my friends from China."
Delivered by TWU in partnership with the Tianjin University of Finance and Economics, the Great Wall MBA is an 18-month program offered executive-style, with classes held on specific weekends over the course of the program. Fully taught in English, the program allows business leaders to obtain their degrees while maintaining their professional careers.
