Global Residency China 2012

A group of MBA & MSc students from the School of Management travelled to Beijing recently for a week-long global residency at the University of Tsinghua.

A highlight of the week was a reception at the Ambassador’s residence in the British Embassy hosted by David Radcliffe, First Secretary of the Embassy and Fraser Attinborough, Deputy Head.

The reception was attended by the global residency participants as well as MBA students from Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management, plus around 30 members of our local Beijing alumni chapter.

The alumni in attendance represented the full range of our MBA and MSc programmes, all of whom now work in a wide-range of industries and companies, from KPMG, PwC and Accenture to Lenovo, Levi Strauss and IBM.

Dr Tony Roath, Senior Lecturer in International Management, Caroline Baldwin, Careers and Professional Development Coordinator, and Snow Wu, one of the founding chapter leaders, each gave a short address.

Caroline Baldwin said:
"The reception was a great networking success. It was wonderful to meet so many alumni and hear about what they had been doing since graduating. The alumni spoke very fondly of their time in Bath and are really keen to support and network with our new cohort of alumni. For the students participating in the global residency, the event provided the perfect complement to their company visits and lectures, providing an opportunity to hear first-hand about living and working in China. Our hosts at the Embassy told us how much they enjoyed hosting the event and how they hope to cooperate with us again in the future."
