The Tsinghua-MIT International MBA Commencement also invited Mr. Worker, New Zealand Ambassador to China, to deliver a keynote speech. The topic of the keynote speech is New Zealand and China: A case study of win-win cooperation. By using the “case-based learning” method which was very familiar to these students, Mr. Worker analyzed and summarized the key elements for the successful cooperation between New Zealand and China to give some guidance for these students to go down their own roads to success.

The last commencement speaker was Prof. Steven White, one of the most popular teachers among Tsinghua-MIT International MBA students. His speech sparked an echo among these graduates, in a moment the commencement became a classroom where Prof. Steven White, on behalf of all teachers at the Tsinghua-MIT International MBA program, gave the “last course” before their graduation.
