Fletcher Thesis: China's Path to A Low Carbon Economy

Why I chose Fletcher: “Many reasons! Its prestigious worldwide status quo in international affairs; its rich resources, from the Center for Emerging Market Enterprise to the Center for International Environment and Resources Policy; its strong tie with China’s diplomatic and business community; its exceedingly competitive, loyal and helpful pool of alumni; and its MIB program in which the sophistication of business operations fits into the complex context of international relations.”

On the support of the alumni network: “The Fletcher alumni network has been most helpful wherever I am. For my research trips to different parts of the world, they were always there and ready to give a hand in need. Now I am trying to do the same in return to current students. Graduate school is not only about acquiring knowledge and professional skills, it also about building a next round of professional network.”
