Ma Xiaoqiu’s Successful Honorary Doctorate Award Ceremony

At 10am on 24 January 2021, Ma Xiaoqiu was awarded an honorary doctorate by California Miramar University at a ceremony held simultaneously in California and at the Singhaji Hotel in Shenzhen. Shenzhen University Vice Chancellor Zhang Xueji and other prominent figures were present at the ceremony, and members of the Board of Trustees, including Steven Warfield, President of California Miramar University, as well as renowned scholars and elites from the United States, participated in the grand conferral ceremony by way
of a web link.

On January 4, 2021, Ma Xiaoqiu was invited by California Miramar University to become an honorary doctor of the university. However, due to COVID-19, Ma was unable to come to California to receive the honour in person. Therefore, at the suggestion and arrangement of the Board of Trustees of California Miramar University, they conferred an honorary doctorate on Ma Xiaoqiu through a web link.

A total of six top administrators from California Miramar University participated in the live link-up, with Vice Chancellor Stan Foster as the host of the conferral ceremony.

 Chancellor Steven Warfield, who presented the certificate to
Ms Ma, said:

"Ms Ma has been deeply involved in the arts, investing in entertainment, music and education, and believes in the core value that respect for cultural differences can unite people around the world to achieve a common world. From starting out with nothing to managing hundreds of billions of dollars in assets, Ma Xiaoqiu is a global role model for women in business, and she is a testament to the power of Chinese women entrepreneurs on the rise.

For this, Miramar University has awarded her an honorary doctorate, which is well deserved."


Dr Jeanie Foster, Chief Operating Officer of California Miramar University, was very appreciative of Ma Xiaoqiu's contribution to culture and philanthropy. In particular, she mentioned Ma Xiaoqiu's outstanding work during the current Xin Guan epidemic:

"Your work is both inspirational and compelling. Your humanitarian efforts in charitable projects have provided thousands of scholarships for young and disadvantaged students in China, which is precious. Your group's efforts to help those affected by COVID-19 last year, through the provision of medical assistance and donations, and later through words and music to send a much-needed positive energy and message to the human spirit, have been invaluable."

Chief Academic Officer and Provost of California Miramar University, Gooyabadi singled out the preciousness of the honorary degree. He said:

"Despite receiving many applications and recommendations for honorary degrees, in the past twenty years, Miramar University has only conferred two such degrees!

It is with great pleasure and honor that I bestow upon this truly outstanding woman, Ms Ma Xiaoqiu, the highest honor for strategic leadership: an honorary doctorate. As we have seen and heard, Ms Ma has made a remarkable contribution, not only as an artist, scholar, philosopher, but also as a philanthropist, educational entrepreneur, entrepreneur and renowned global leader."

 The Two translators of the Autumn Dialogues
gave speech on this new book.

Gerard Donovan

"Congratulations Dr Ma!

"I’m very grateful to the opportunity to translate your book, it’s one of the greatest Chinese  books I have read for its vast scope and deep profound meanings that can be applied to contemporary Chinese practice. I learned that Dreams can be translated. Thank you Dr Ma! "

Dr. Jeannie Yi

"I’m very grateful to be friends with Ms Ma or Dr Ma.
Over the past few years as her business advisor, I come to understand the meaning of an old Chinese proverb:
a silly man who moved the mountains.
Ms Ma’s attitude toward hurdles in life is the same as the Silly Old Man move the mountain that blocks the way.
Never go about it.
 Autumn Dialogues shows the way how this gets done.
Thank you Dr Ma!"

At the Conferral Ceremony,

Ma Xiaoqiu was dressed in a doctoral uniform and a doctoral cap, and was tipped and awarded a certificate by Academician Zhang Xueji. President Zhang Xueji, who is a member of the American Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a foreign member of the Russian Academy of Engineering and a member of the European Academy of Sciences, was invited to turn the passel for Ma Xiaoqiu and present the certificate on behalf of California Miramar University


Madam Xiaoqiu Ma,

Madam Xiaoqiu Ma

Amidst the congratulations, Ma expressed her gratitude, saying,

Ladies and Gentlemen, my dearest friends near and far!

Today I’m greatly honored and deeply humbled in receiving the honorary doctor degree from a prestigious American institute-
California Miramar University.

This is an honor I have never even dared to dream:
 to have a doctoral hat to be put on my head, a doctor’s degree certificate in my hand, witnessed by my family, friends and colleagues.

This highlights my life.
Thanks for the people who love me and support me along the way!
Thanks to California Miramar University’s approval and love! This is something I will cherish for life!

Although I am the chairman of several multinational and listed companies, I used to be just like many of you: an ordinary Chinese girl in the journey of growing up constantly chasing the sun in my heart.

Today, I truly feel the light of the sun shining above my head, warm and bright! I am so excited, I'm so grateful! I am very grateful to the Academic Council of Miramar University, the President, and all the experts and professors of innovative leadership for recognizing me.

I am particularly grateful to Mr. Stoner, Founder and Chairman
of the Pacific Rim Chamber of Commerce.

Thank you for introducing me to Dr. Stan Foster, founder and dean of the School of Innovative Leadership at Miramar University.

I thank you all for thinking about Ma Xiaoqiu on the other side of the ocean in the midst of world pandemic in LA where the pandemic is hit the hardest.

 You take such precious time out of your life and use your insight, philosophy and academic strength to evaluate my artistic and academic values, innovative models and development ideas of business management, to which
 I’m very thankful.

 I would also like to express my deep gratitude to
Vice President Zhang Xueji of Shenzhen University,

and Vice President of International Chaozhou Alliance
and Association for International Capital Alliance,

 Mr. He Yipeng, Deputy Secretary General of ICCO.

 Thank you very much! I am very honored to get your collective recognition,
a connection of a kindred spirit.

Today is a high point in my life, but also it’s another new starting point.

 I will ask everyone present to encourage me to do better;
and I will try my very best to live up to your expectations!

Thanks again to the leaders of the school!
 Thanks again to all the family and friends who have gathered here!
I wish you all good luck in the new year!

Madam Xiaoqiu Ma
