MBA Connect Story:
From West to East
Thomas Lesinski (Germany)

Full-time Class of 2009

The MBA journey is life-changing, even when your horizons are already broad. Our alumnus, Thomas Lesinski, early followed his passion for other countries, eventually graduating with a CUHK MBA in 2009. Volkswagen Consulting then lured him back to Germany until he relocated to China in 2013.

Thomas recently recounted his experience of crossing from West to East, offering insightful observations about China’s business culture. He also gave practical tips for developing a career in Asia.

Chiharu Publishes Book on Asian MBAs
Other parts of Asia are rapidly increasing in importance as destinations for Japanese business executives pursuing MBA studies. Seeing a lack of organized information despite the soaring interest, our alumna Ms. Chiharu Kajinami (Class of 2012) recently published a book entitled “アジアでMBA 〜もっと気軽に、もっと成長できる場所へ〜” (MBA in Asia – A carefree location for your development). This is the first book to provide comprehensive information on 14 business schools in 5 Asian cities, with 21 alumni from the schools sharing their experiences and Chiharu offering a first-hand, lively sharing of her CUHK and exchange MBA life.
