#Double Major in Management of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Although she does an outstanding academic work in her second major -- Management of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, she has also reflcted over the problems existed in the educational system. Incomplete educational system of I&E results in the messy orgnization of the courses; Few of the students enrolled in the I&E program lack the courage and executive capability to drive the idea to real things;I&E education always is bussiness oriented, the interdisciplinary  interaction isn‘t effective enough. 

With all the related experience and the detected problems, Sophie Lee is passionate to learn more about the I&E education by UIF program, and to make more impact in PKU and China by utilizing the methods learnt in UIF.
