Meet MS in Marketing Alum JY Tian

JY Tian was looking for two things when he was applying to business schools in the United States: reputation and rigor. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree from the United Kingdom in 2014, the Chinese national settled on a short list of schools that included Cornell, Columbia, and the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.

When it came time to make a decision, Tian said Carey’s Master of Science in Marketing program was the clear choice for him.

Two years, one job offer, and one promotion later, it’s a decision he says he doesn’t regret.
