Zichao Zhao, MSSP’13

  • Research Assistant, Research Department, China International Capital Corporation

“Being an international student in the MSSP program was definitely a great experience. With excellent students from countries at different stages of development and political systems, we were studying with the same goal: “to study social problems and find the best solutions of them.” Studying social policy in an international community allowed us to share our knowledge on social issues and policy practices from different countries as well as learn from each other. The opportunity of group work exposed us to a multicultural working environment. Also thanks to the flexibility of this program, I was able to have my internship in a governmental research institution in my home country, China, which, gave me the opportunity to take a close look at the actual policy making process.”
