Shen is currently the Overseas Business Manager for China Guangdong Nuclear Group, one of China's largest builders and operators of nuclear power plants.

He is responsible for growing the company's international partnerships and is actively working on ties with South Africa, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and other countries. Shen hopes to also grow the group's cooperation with Australia. 

This influential graduate was previously the Training Manager in the Human Resource Department of Guangdong Da Ya Bay Nuclear Power Service Group, and was recently admitted into a PhD program at the Dalian University of Technology.

Shen has predicted nuclear power will become increasingly important in solving environmental and energy supply challenges.

He says his MBA has armed him with the broad business skills required to succeed in the corporate sector.

"The MBA has given me an all-round knowledge to solve so many problems in the market, such as HR questions, financial questions, accounting information and consumer behaviour, In most cases I can go to my boss or team with a total business solution," he says.

As Chinese state-owned enterprises spread their wings to target international ventures, graduates such as Shen are in great demand.

If Australia does embrace nuclear power, Shen may return and says "maybe in several years there will be the opportunity to work in Australia".
