In recent years, more students in China have chosen to obtain a master’s degree or a PhD as a way to postpone their entrance into the labor market, either out of a mere hope of increasing their competitiveness in the future, or simply because they haven’t found a proper job. However, graduate education is not meant for everyone. The pressure of being able to graduate on time, the relationship with academic supervisor, the higher expectations from the society…For the students, it has become a question of who gives up first.
The college president is the leader of a college or university. A professional capable of transforming institutions with new skills and capabilities, handling a problem and addressing the new era of student activism gets honored as president by the university board and search committees.
To pursue a career as a college president, a doctorate in education, economics, or a related field and gaining higher education leadership programs is preferred. Above all, you should have an inclination toward meeting hundreds of people, promoting novel concepts, influencing the lives and future of countless students. It should be your forte.
