2019 Graduation Speech- Student Representative, He Rui Good evening everyone! Just 10 months ago, we sat together for the first time in the rotunda at UVA, curious about which country the person sitting beside us was from, or what language he or she spoke. And now 10 months later, we are here, celebrating the end of this long journey as a big family. Time always goes faster than people think, but I invite you to recall, do you still remember the friends who were in the same color group as you in the personality test in orientation? Do you still remember what your thesis teammate wrote in the confidential envelopes? You might find that a lot can happen over the course of 10 months! In this program, we got a comprehensive and systematic education in each field of business. No matter if it was at McIntire, Lingnan or ESADE, we had both theoretical courses and practical training. No matter if it was in Marketing, Finance or Operations, we learned from experienced professors and through our own team cooperation. I still remember the debate sessions organized by Professor Cowen, and how we could all see the same management question from different views. I appreciate that Professor Tingting taught us how to quantify consumers’ attitudes towards brands. I may never forget how to understand operation bottleneck from the example of Herbie’s hiking introduced by Professor Wiengarten. All of these education experiences were not only about teaching us the knowledge or skills we will use in the career, but also meant to show us the philosophy behind our lives and future ahead.The study trips in three continents could be one of highlights in this year. We visited the US state department in Washington DC, where we discussed not only academics, but also politics, trade and international relations. In Shenzhen, China, we were impressed by how digital banking is changing people’s lives, thanks to WeBank, Tencent. Here in Barcelona, all of us were excited to visit the Amazon fulfillment center, experiencing how world-class logistical operations can work with smart technology. In addition, this year has also been a long cultural trip. We experienced three unique cultures across the globe, spending Thanksgiving in the US, Spring Festival in China, and Easter holiday in Europe, the most interesting festivals in their right places! Of course, we also had our confusions along the way, such as why Chinese use umbrellas on sunny days, or why western people wait until the last-minute to plan a trip. We also had conflicts from how to structure a PowerPoint presentation, to what the temperature the air conditioner should be set at. But that is all because, we were studying together, and sharing our lives together. When my friends in China asked me what this program is like, I told them it is just like a large pan of Valencian paella. When you put chicken, ribs, onion, beans, and rice, all the stuff in the pan, it really looks like a mess in the beginning. However, when you give it some time, you smell the aromas from the pan, you find that they mixed together perfectly. They used to have totally different flavors, but in the pan, they adapt each other, they change each other. That is why every piece of chicken, every grain of rice gets a better flavor than it had before. That is how each of us becomes a better version of ourselves. To conclude, on behalf of the cohort, I want to thank all the faculties from the three schools for teaching us, leading us, and creating this unique learning environment for us. A special thank you to all the families and friends, especially our parents, for the company and support they have given us not only today, but for our entire lives. Finally, I want to thank the class. I am honored to speak on your behalf, but the real honor is the time I had been spending with you all. At some point in the future, maybe when we least expect, I hope that our paths may cross again. Thank you! Gracias! 谢谢了小伙伴！
Lingnan College Class Reunion of All International Cooperating Programs
ꦓOn 30th of May, Lingnan College worked along with Plateno Group to deliver an exceptional class reunion party for Lingnan graduates from four international cooperating programs including Yale-China/L (U) C Symposium on Global Strategic Leadership Program, Oxford-Lingnan Global Strategic Leadership Symposium, Master of Science in Global 3 Masters in Management, as well as MBA.The activity was held in Plateno Group office, Shenzhen, with over 30 attendances on the day. Alumni outside the venue city traveled all the way from Guangzhou and even Hong Kong for the reunion. Mr. Zheng Nanyan, the founder of Plateno Group and the Group’s CFO-Mr. Zhang Wei, shared their career development experiences and entrepreneurship with all alumni. Other than that, they also interacted with individuals by answering their questions regarding career life. The wisdom in their responses surely had an influence on alumni’s attitudes toward professionalism. The discussion also involved the dissimilarities in terms of consuming habits as well as consuming concepts between older and younger generations in China. Alumni there with a wide range of age stages all happily joined this conversation since it really resonated with the group. Numerous ideas and opinions were exchanged, and no one was hesitate on presenting their thoughts because everyone there understood the importance of respecting insights and differences. Many of alumni chose to stay and kept socializing when the event reached to the end, and almost everyone that night showed an intention of joining the reunion party again for next year.
WELCOME CLASS OF 2019 “If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.” – Thomas Jefferson Contributed by Alissa Rabat and Colleen Betik Greetings from the third M.S. in Global Commerce class as we start our global business adventure at our first destination, the University of Virginia. Our cohort consists of classmates from 13 different nationalities, who will be spending the next four months living together, attending the same classes, learning from each other about our various cultures, and sharing experiences. Our journey through this program will include a year-long business thesis, which we will begin working on at UVA and defend at our final destination, ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain. In between these two destinations, we will live and study at Lingnan College at Sun Yat-sen University in southern China, where we will learn about doing business in one of the world’s most critical emerging economies.
Ringing in the Year of the Dog and Concluding Our China Experience Our last few weeks in China were jam packed with Spring Festival, team projects, and final exams. Spring Festival is the holiday surrounding Chinese New Year, and MSGC students had 10 days off to ring in the Year of the Dog! This gave us the opportunity to travel around China and experience this cultural event firsthand. I had the opportunity to go home with one of my Chinese classmates, Danyang, to celebrate the New Year with her family. Other students made trips to see Beijing and the Great Wall, Shanghai with it's amazing skyline, and Xi'an, the eastern end of the Silk Road and site of the Bingmayong (Terra Cotta Army).After Spring Festival, it was time to wrap up our classes at Lingnan. Three of our classes had final group projects and one class had a final exam. For each group project, we did an analysis of various companies across different continents on a specific business topic, such as supply chain or consumer behavior. My group, for example, looked at the factors that affect potato chip purchases in China and the United States, specifically for Pringles and Lay's. This allowed us to not only better understand multiple multinational companies, but also make comparisons about their global strategies and presence in different markets around the globe. Overall, China was a fascinating, exciting, and challenging part of the program. From the food and culture to the teaching style and everyday life, it was different from anything I have ever experienced. After living there for 9 weeks, though, I can definitely say that I have broadened my global perspectives and gained a much better appreciation for Chinese culture. I will never forget ringing in the Chinese New Year eating homemade dumplings with Danyang's family, exploring the showroom of one of the world's largest drone producers, or hiking the Great Wall with classmates from all around the world. I can't believe how fast our time in China flew by. Now, it's time for our next and final destination of the program: Barcelona, Spain!
Alumni in Action-2017 The M.S. in Global Commerce (MSGC) program is almost nearing the end of the U.S. term; it’s hard to believe how fast time flies! Even though the program is only in its second year, students from the inaugural class are already reaping the benefits from this unique global experience. Some of the major benefits of this program are the career services resources and alumni networks from three esteemed universities in the U.S., China, and Spain. We spoke with two alumni, Grace (works at Accenture) and Stoan (works at Volvo) about why they chose the program and its positive impact on their careers.Grace McLarty & Stoan Stewart, Class of 2017Why did you choose the MSGC program? Grace: I chose the program specifically because of its international components. The truly immersive global experiences of this program enhance the degrees exponentially. I knew that I would receive an excellent education at UVA, but what really excited me were the opportunities this program provided for advancing my cross-cultural communication skills. These are skills that are useful in a global business environment, of course, but possibly even more important in a domestic setting. The communication, problem solving, and resiliency you develop through living overseas and working with people from different cultures and backgrounds provides you with a comprehensive, analytical mindset. This outlook helps you to stand out as an employee in any environment. Stoan: The program offered me an opportunity to go back to school, connect with companies all over the world, and travel to different parts of the globe all in one year. While M.S. degrees are not as well-known as the MBA, I believe programs like the M.S. in Global Commerce are bringing attention to the value of specialized master’s degrees. They meet the need of my generation’s demands for global agility. Who would you recommend this program to? Grace: I would recommend this program to any student with a strong, undergraduate business degree who wishes to further their education as well as develop a unique skill set to help them stand out in a global business career. The international component was a huge draw for me, and I would recommend it to anyone who is curious about expanding their global mindset. Stoan: I would recommend this program to people interested in working in international business. It is one thing to understand that business is global, but a totally different experience to have lived and studied in three countries in just one year. This opportunity not only connects three top business schools, but provides the chance to live and work with students from all over the globe. I knew I wanted to work in a large multinational company, and this program gave me the qualifications desired by these global companies. What type of career and/or networking benefits did this program provide for you? Grace: The professional and personal growth this program provided me was exceptional. Additionally, having master’s degrees from two internationally recognized universities like UVA and ESADE as well as a certificate from Lingnan provide you with a level of professional credibility that sets you apart from the competition. The relationships I made in the program are amazing. You will have friends, colleagues, and mentors around the world forever. I am so excited to see the impact and influence of these relationships throughout my career. The possibilities are limitless. Stoan: The M.S. in Global Commerce allowed me to develop a global network. I now have contacts in three different business schools and can tap into their alumni networks as well. I owe my current position with Volvo to the hard work and dedication of the career services teams. They were clearly invested in all of our success and it was shown on both a group and individual basis. PS. Here are some career destinations for class of 2017.
