About Sixu's Career

Since graduating, what have you gone on to do? 
I'm currently working in The Export-Import  Bank of China as a project manager. My job role is to reinforce financial support to China's foreign trade and promote greater openness, international cooperation, inclusive development in other key sectors and weak links. The aim is to fully leverage on the guiding functions in facilitating financial services in order to make substantial contributions at promoting China's development.


About Sixu's Newcastle Experience

What was your favourite thing about your course?
My favourite thing about the course would be the excellence of the teaching system, which I found in my opinion to be perfectly suited for my needs. The high-quality of the modules in the course helped me to develop independent study skills, which I particularly enjoyed.

About Sixu's Future

How do you see future technologies and new ways of working (Future of Work) affecting your sector?
I feel that artificial intelligence will replace a large number of financial works such as the online banking service and non-inductive pay.I also feel that leveraging on technolgy as a core competence will be key for companies in the banking industry.

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
I hope to keep working in my current role at the same company but also work on projects in order to contribute more to China's economic and social development, particularly in terms of sustainability.
