"During the two-year MCS program, I had the unique opportunity to meet brilliant people with many different cultural backgrounds, but one thing in common - the enthusiasm for China.  While the interdisciplinary curriculum is focused on providing an understanding of China's history, culture, economics and language, the MCS program supports you in exploring China first-hand and directly apply what you have learned."
