After the successful launch of the The MSc (Management) Club in January, the committee members kept the momentum going by organising a dinner to welcome the fresh graduates into the alumni family.
New connections were made as alumni across the years met fresh graduates and current students. After graduation, many of them were kept busy with their career and thus appreciated the chance to meet up in a casual setting at this convenient location.
Professor Jumana Zuhalka, Assistant Dean (Undergraduate Academic) and Academic Director, MSc (Mgt) & CEMS MIM, gave a welcome address and provided the group with an update on the programme changes.
Emcee for the evening, Exco member Durwin Ho proceeded to introduce guest speaker, Lana Duong, who graduated in 2011 with concurrent BBA (Hons) and Msc (Management) degrees. Lana shared how the programme and the exposure to people with diverse culture through the CEMS connection, helped draw her out of her “shell” and boosted her confidence. Now a Senior Associate with NSI Ventures, which invests in the Southeast Asian early-stage technology sector, she attributed her successful career progression to the communication skills she developed while undergoing the programme.
“We are giving our full support to the Club and will continue to sponsor an annual gathering for this group. We hope the MSc (Management) alumni community will continue to stay connected, not just with among themselves but also with the Business School. Please continue to support the programme by sharing your feedback and volunteering to the school community”, says Hamidah Puteh, from the Global Alumni Network Office.
Akanksha Batura too, expressed her enthusiasm, “We are pleased with the response and are confident with the establishment of this club, more of our alumni from the earlier years will join us in our annual gatherings in future.”
