International students make history

Two Taiwanese students have become the first international students to successfully complete the Masters in Business Administration (MBA) full time programme.

Tan-Yun Huang and Jen-Che Wang applied for the MBA course after completing a graduate diploma programme through the national study centre - INTO. After passing seven modules and completing their dissertations, they have both successfully finished the course in one year.

Speaking after their graduation ceremony at the Ipswich Town Hall, Tan-Yun and Jen-Che spoke of their delight at achieving the MBA qualification and becoming the first International students to complete the full time course.

Tan-Yun Huang said: "It feels great to be the first International students to receive this award- very special. I now plan to stay in this area and look for a career."

Jen-Che Wang described his time as a challenging new experience: "The course has been a great challenge and the type of experience I could not have received in Asia. Suffolk has been a beautiful environment for me to study in and the Professors really care about learning which has made the experience all the more enjoyable."

Carol Faiers, Programme Leader for the full time MBA course said: "To achieve an MBA qualification in one year of full time study is a significant achievement, and to do so in a language that is not your first language is outstanding. It has been a pleasure for the MBA teaching team to work with Tan-Yun and Jen-Che during the year. We wish them well in their future careers."
