The TCMiBA Program of Tsinghua SEM visits Chubb


YANG Ping, secretary general of the Tsinghua SEM East US Alumni Association, and 27 students from the 2021 and 2022 classes of the Tsinghua-Columbia Dual Master's Degree Program in Business Analytics (TCMiBA) visited Chubb on the morning of October 6, 2023. Evan Greenberg, a member of the Advisory Committee of Tsinghua SEM and Chairman and CEO of Chubb, met the alumni and students for a friendly exchange.

Today's world is full of uncertainties, Greenberg said, and it is important to maintain a proactive attitude and focus on the forefront of technological development without neglecting management and strategic learning. As for the job hunting and career choices after graduation, Greenberg said students should keep an open mind, explore opportunities, and actively showcase themselves in social and cultural environments to gain experience and overcome obstacles.
