One of the major benefactors and alumnus of the International MBA program, Mr. Wei Chen passed away on December 20, 2018. Mr. Chen famously made a single engine aircraft. He is the first Chinese citizen to accomplish this feat. He is also the first person to land a single engine aircraft at the Beijing Capital Airport.
He was a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist. He instituted the Sunshine Scholarship for International students in the IMBA program which benefited many students. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
