Professor Leslie Marx teaches the managerial economics course. Her passion for economics is so evident in every class, she almost forces you to fall in love with the subject! I never would have thought that this was something I would find so compelling, but that is exactly what happened. Her class was full of interesting examples, relevant articles, and fun in-class activities. It was very clear that she cared deeply that her students understood the concepts. She also made a conscious effort to be inclusive and thoughtful towards the various backgrounds represented in our class.
After researching the program and speaking with the admissions staff, it was very clear that both Duke and Fuqua are one of a kind. The opportunity to be a part of a diverse and talented group of students combined with the amazing professors made Fuqua a stand-out option for my graduate studies. The Duke Kunshan University portion, in my eyes, elevates the learning component even further. The immersive cultural learning I will have adds to the invaluable experience that I will carry with me throughout my entire life.
