On January the 27th 2016, a four school networking event was organized for the CUHK students visiting Singapore from their home in Hongkong.
Nanyang Business School has always shared a cordial relationship with regional schools. When Megan from the NBS admin staff found out that CUHK students were going to be in town in January, she promptly asked Deep Dabholkar, the President of the Nanyang Students Executive Committee, to plan an event.
What started off as a small get together snowballed into a four school networking event. Students from the National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University and Nanyang Business School got together to organize a fun filled evening at the Hood Bar and Café for the Chinese University of Hong Kong students.
With a total attendance of 73, the event turned out to be a huge success. Live music and pre-negotiated drink and snacks made the evening an exciting one. Moreover Nanyang Business School students were part of an effort to show the visiting students grand Singapore hospitality.
The twenty tired, but excited CUHK students had a fabulous evening networking with the Singapore Business Schools. Once the event wound to a close, the hawk-eyed NBS students noticed that the CUHK students had left behind their school banner! They unanimously decided to take a hike to the hotel where the students were living and return the goods.
The picture below shows the enthusiasm of the NBS students to perform a good deed at the end of a tiring evening. Needless to say, the CUHK students were thankful and thrilled at our commitment to return their banner.
NBS Students with the CUHK banner – inter-school friendships are formed!
