Student Experience – Master of Management Studies | Duke Kunshan University

Student Experience

Your experience with the Master of Management Studies: Duke Kunshan University program goes far beyond the classroom and just getting a job. When you join the program, you’re also joining a close-knit community that celebrates teamwork, engagement, and impact. Your experience also extends to unique global exposure and cultural experience, because you’ll spend time studying in both the U.S. and China.

Team Fuqua, Team DKU

Our community values collaboration and rallies behind your success. That's what makes us one of the finest business schools in the world, and what will make you one of the best in your industry.

From the very beginning, the spirit of Team Fuqua builds close connections between you and your classmates. You’ll spend a significant amount of time with your peers, whether it’s during team building activities, team assignments, or team socials. By building these connections, you’ll develop valuable collaboration and leadership skills both inside and outside of the classroom.

While studying at Fuqua, you can partner with other students who are doing one-year master’s programs there, like students in the MMS: Foundations of Business program, teaming up for extracurricular and career activities. You can also join a variety of MBA clubs, and network with other Fuquans at Fuqua Friday, a school-wide weekly social.

When in China, you’ll have the continued support of the Fuqua community in your development and success, but you’ll also join a dynamic and diverse community at the Duke Kunshan campus, letting you network with students and faculty from other programs.

Personal Explorations

The world is your classroom. What better way to learn and experience culture than traveling? Whether you’re going solo or with your classmates, you’ll find hidden gems in the cultures of these two countries.
