The short summer course on “Entrepreneurship” offered by Professor Kuo is coming to an end. In order to acquire some feedbacks, we had some random interviews with students who took the course this afternoon .
Xue Wang, a recently graduated PhD student from MCL, still hold an enormouse passion and persistency in attending this course. On her intuitive in taking this course, she said, “This class lets me learn new things, and think in a different way. As a graduate student researcher, I might have been familiar with and accustomed to a fixed pattern or mode of studying and thinking, which may limit my horizon and lead to incomprehensive understanding of the world.” And the course surely benefits her a lot in enlightening the entrepreneurship in a whole different way: “This short course guides me to look into a different domain and opens my mind. It attracts me by exploring the story beneath that surface, for example, the story behind a successful product. Through the class, I also learn how an outstanding company builds the vision of the future on base of innovation, cooperation, and management, in order to keep it sticking out from the crowd of competitors. It is, viewed from other perspective, a part of the ‘story’ unknown to most clients, but of great value worth studying as being ‘stay hungry, stay foolish’. “She said.
Along with the common MCL members in group, there is another “special” student , Chuqiao Xu, a summer internship student from Tsinghua University.

She also said, “This is really a great course that can bring new thoughts to us and let us think in a different angle.”
