Getting to know…. Yuen-Ling Lok
Class: MBA 2011
Job: Business Development Manager EMEA at Covestro AG, Germany
Yuen-Ling was born in Germany with a Hong Kong heritage. She has lived in four countries, has a strong interest in marketing, innovation and business development and enjoys volleyball, bouldering and playing guitar in her free time.
Studying at CEIBS can help you uncover much of the unknown and for Yuen-Ling this was certainly true. “I realised how German I actually was! During my time at CEIBS, I learnt a different perspective and a different way of approaching problems – there is no one right approach. It was a very helpful eye-opener for working in China after my MBA.”
Yuen-Ling looks back on her time at CEIBS with fond memories, including CEIBS’ 15-year anniversary where she was able to contribute as a Beijing Opera character on stage. Academically, she recalls The Integrated Strategy Project in particular “This is where I was able to put the learnings of my MBA into practice. Together with my team, we even managed to initiate a business deal worth several millions of RMB between two multinational companies.”
We asked her what advice she would give to someone considering studying at CEIBS: “You will learn & experience a lot about China, the entrepreneurial spirit in Shanghai and the dynamics in this country that is building up a centre for global business. China is a very special developing country and CEIBS offers you the perfect platform to expand your knowledge and network.”
When asked what CEIBS means to her, she said simply “Teamwork, sincere friendships and China.”
