While heading to an anticipated summer holiday, it is fortunate that our Centre and the Shanghai City has been recovered from a major lock-down caused by re-outbreak of Covid-19.
It is proud to say that China Centre has always adhered to University’s core strategic goal of social responsibility, despite the suspension of offline operation for more than 2 months. During the pandemic, the UoM China Centre and UoM Shanghai Alumni Association hosted a series of online events promoting the wellbeing of our community via the MCloud platform, attracting more than 10,000 viewers.
We are also exceptionally glad that we hosted an on-site welcome event for the new intake of our Global MBA students, as well as a farewell ceremony for our recent graduates. It is another fresh start, and also a cherished reunion. Despite the uncertainties ahead under the normalization of the pandemic, we feel confident that our students could still benefit from a world-class tertiary education via our matured online/blended learning system that was constantly developed by UoM for decades.
To echo the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the UK, UoM China Centre celebrates our identity as a pioneer of people-to-people diplomacy in the region. By supporting major events including The British Business Awards 2022 and ESG China Awards 2022, we are committed to promote the sustainable development of Chinese and British community.
I would like to thank our students, alumni, partners for their great support during this unforgettable spring. We look forward to a bright and prosperous semester ahead of us!
