Hello fellow xpaters! I need some advice...first, a very brief background; im 25 yo, from sweden, take a BBA in HKU where I am a second year student. I've lived in a couple of countries before and have a quite international background and I'll be finished with this programme 2008. So far, everything alright, apart from the fact that I'll be 27 yo when I graduate...quite old for a first degree.
Now to my problem, I'm thinking about taking a break for 1 full year (I cant take 6 months because of my curriculum) and move to Shanghai or Beijing to study Mandarin...1 year, fulltime language studies. This would mean that I will be able to speak reasonable (input if you have please!) chinese, but be finished with my BBA at the age of 28...that is late. Very very late, especially if you look on the local crowd who all have their BBA:s, their 2years of work experience AND their MBA at 28.
In short; should I do this or not?
