Alumni story: Xiaolei Shawn Du, Information Technology (IMPIT)

For China native Xiaolei Shawn Du, the International Master's Degree Programme in Information Technology (IMPIT) at the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) was a stepping stone to many interesting job opportunities in Finland. And he is not the only one – since at least half of the student batch stayed in Finland after graduation. Many ended up in the Helsinki metropolitan area, like Xiaolei, working in software development – and enjoying the Finnish work-life balance that Xiaolei especially appreciates.

I can easily combine an IT career and family time in Finland.
