The College of Saint Rose Huether School of Business invites you to attend the 2019 Peter M. Tully Lecture Series featuring an armchair conversation between Saint Rose Trustee Hai Ling ’93, co-president of Asia Pacific at Mastercard, and The College of Saint Rose President Carolyn J. Stefanco, Ph.D.

Ling’s role reflects the growing importance of Asia Pacific as a whole and Mastercard’s more-focused approach to the region’s two biggest markets, China and India. Prior to assuming this role, Ling served as group executive of enterprise development, international markets for Mastercard. He joined Mastercard in 2010 as division president of Greater China and has over 22 years industry experience, including in financial services and consulting, across a number of markets. Ling received a B.S. in Business Administration from Saint Rose and has commented, “China is my birthplace, but the U.S. is now my home country. I am glad that I am able to contribute to the success of a U.S. company while doing so in China. I owe my success to the fairness and openness of the U.S. society … but my journey really started with The College of Saint Rose.”
