60th Anniversary Global Alumni Celebration Among Global Alumni Concluded Successfully in Beijing

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of CUHK Business School, the Alumni Office of CUHK Business School organised a roving series of alumni gatherings starting April this year. Following the enthusiastic response in Macau, Toronto, New York, Singapore, Shanghai, Taipei, Shenzhen and Hong Kong, the series came to a successful conclusion in Beijing.

The finale of the alumni gala was held on 29 October at Infinity Ballroom, Hilton Beijing. Over 250 alumni from different generations and industry backgrounds turned out to join Prof. Lin Zhou, Dean of CUHK Business School, along with Associate Deans, Programme and Alumni Office representatives at the event. The rendezvous was also graced by the Beijing-based presidents of several Alumni Associations, including Ma Lap Ping (BBA 1988), President of CUHK Business Alumni Association – Beijing; Dai Xiaoyuan (FMBA 2002), President of CUHK Business School FMBA Beijing Alumni Association; and Chen Jun [EMBA (Chi) 2018] with EMBA (Chinese) Alumni Association.

In his speech, Prof. Zhou expressed heartfelt gratitude to alumni for their support for the global gathering series that culminated in Beijing. He was particularly keen on more networking opportunities with alumni in the future.

He also thanked CUHK Business Alumni Association – Beijing, FMBA Beijing Alumni Association, and EMBA (Chinese) Alumni Association for their continued efforts to connect alumni, with a view to driving the robust growth of the CUHK Business School alumni community.

The speech was followed by a ceremonial toast commemorating the 60th anniversary of both the CUHK and CUHK Business School.

The evening reached the climax when attending alumni eagerly participated in the lucky draw that gave away fabulous prizes. Amid a free flow of drinks, courtesy of Zhang Jun (FMBA 2004), there were jolly conversations and peals of laughter exchanged between alumni as they updated each other on their personal lives and relived the nostalgia for their college days.

The global alumni gatherings could not be possible without the staunch support of all attending alumni in their localities. With the theme of “Bond to Carry On the Boundless Legacy”, they offered great networking opportunities that surpassed geographical and generational boundaries. The alumni community is a big family with its doors open to all members. We look forward. On this note, we look forward to the active participation of more alumni in our vibrant and diverse activities!
