Hi Team, I am currently looking for Masters program to enhance my skill set. I have been working more than 15 years however due to lack of higher degree/ education I have not been able to rise in my organization / over all career. I am certainly looking for career advancement now as competition has been increased tremendously. When I saw that university is inviting people even those are in 40’s I felt that this is definitely going to help me to realize my dream of doing master’s with international exposure. I could not go for higher studies in past due to many personal reasons. Now for next 20 years I will be totally focusing on myself, my career. Hence I guess it would be an wonderful opportunity for me to get myself enrolled for better future. Once I will finish my studies I will definitely will be in better position to stand at the same level with my peers back in India who all are Masters from prestigious universities with global exposures whereas I am just a simple graduate hence not getting equal opportunity for upward movement. Therefore I would definitely like to go for it. When we hear that life begins at 40s, so why not for me as well. If not now then will never !

I chose to apply for studies at Xiamen university because a friend referred me to it and spoke highly of the quality in education, the passionate professors and the pleasant atmosphere of the city. In addition to this, the fact that Xiamen is a port city got me very interested in this university as I have always had close ties to shipping and business overseas, which makes the course I'm applying to (Business Chinese) all the more applicable.
