The four-year BA English and International Business equipped me with a set of transferrable skills, including high proficiency in English, bi-lingual communication capabilities, critical thinking and international vision. The integrated and progressive curriculum design of this programme gave me a comprehensive insight into the fields of communication, linguistics, and business. The research-oriented teaching methods, abundant learning resources, and sufficient support from my lovely professors inspired me and helped me choose my future path. I was encouraged to express my ideas through independent and creative thinking. I’m always grateful to my programme and to XJTLU.
