Motivations and expectations

During the session, students shared their reasons for coming to China and studying at XJTLU.“I think XJTLU would be the best destination for learning Chinese language and culture,” said Nilofar Paiwand Ali, an undergraduate global management student from Toronto Metropolitan University, Canada.“In addition, XJTLU has all the courses that I need, such as modules about supply chain management, project management and international trade. So, it’s a perfect choice for me,” she added.

Noemi Cattelan, an Italian student pursuing an MA Language and Management to China at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, is an exchange student at XJTLU. She said she wants to immerse herself in the Chinese-speaking environment: “I’ve been studying Chinese for ten years, and I’m eager to use it in real-life situations rather than just in textbooks.”

Géry Duroyon, an exchange student pursuing a master’s degree at NEOMA Business School, France, said he wants to learn about business in China: “What I look forward the most at XJTLU is discovering more about China and Chinese language, and deepening my understanding of business.”
