Being the time of the year with the most energy and vigour, Spring is the season of my personal favourite, for the weather, the green but also the vibrance our students bring to the Centre - it is the MBA peak workshop season. I would like to welcome students, current and new to immerse yourself in the study experience in China Centre. Also to thank all our support staff for a job well done!
Coming up is the Labour Day break and also the 7th Asia Business School Desert Challenge, which will be launched in inner-Mongolia over the break. It is a tough test of strength, speed and determination. With all our MBAs successfully finished the 3-day 70km desert hike winning the top 'ShaOu' prize last year, we wish them the best of luck and a proud return!
Looking back ten years, the Centre was founded in 2008. That makes 2018 the most important and soon most memorable year for us. 10 years ago, as the Business School's overseas arm, the Centre was founded. I was lucky enough to be the founding Director. 10 years on, we have successfully helped increase awareness of the University in China, established partnerships with institutions and corporates and most importantly brought to local professionals blended-learning programmes of Manchester quality. Proudly adding to the portfolio, will be a selection of Masters Programme and a short-term credit-bearing management and leadership programme, to better assist our future students with personal and career development.
To celebrate the occasion , I would like to invite our students and alumni to join me for our big 10th anniversary celebration in September.
We hope to turn our birthday into an event where you share the best memory of Manchester with friends and MBA colleagues.
