Everybody enjoys! International Day for NUS MBA Intake 2012

NUS MBA의 커뮤니티는 한국을 비롯해 중국, 인도,일본,미국, 파키스탄, 프랑스, 콜롬비아, 에콰도르, 핀란드 등 전 세계에서 온 학생들로 이루어져 있습니다. 그런만큼 각자의 문화를 소개하고 즐기는 International Day 행사는 무척이나 흥미로운 이벤트이기도 합니다. 올해에도 역시 다양한 문화를 접해볼 수 있는 좋은 기회였는데요. 가장 먼저 많은 이들의 관심을 끌었던 것은 전통의상이었습니다. 가장 인기를 끈 중국의 Mingyu! 두 아이의 엄마라는 것이 믿기지 않을 만큼 날씬한 몸매가 잘 어울리는 차이나 드레스로 많은 이들의 눈길을 사로잡았습니다. 갑자기 우리의 귀요미 Takumi 군도 유타카를 입고와서 join!

전통의상이라면 일본의 기모노가 빠질 수 없겠죠? 마침 정통 기모노와 유타카를 하나씩 사이좋게 입고온 Kaoruko & Kie. 전통 일본미인들의 자태를 보여주었습니다. 물론 저도 함께 사진을 찍을 수 있는 영광을 얻었지요!^^

No Ordinary Night


OneMBA.OneFamily. NUS MBA International Night 2011.

With the MBA family hailing from all over the world, there is much to learn and share. Our student blogger reports on the highly-anticipated NUS MBA International Day event.

October 3, 2011 started out just like any normal day. The freshies came to attend their Marketing and Finance core courses, the seniors on to their electives.  Groups went on to discuss reports and projects. But around 7 in the evening when the NUS MBA community converged to Kent Ridge Guild House, that’s when all the action happened. The MBAs let go of their laptops and readings and traded their casuals and formals for something more colorful. Folks, welcome to NUS MBA International Day 2011 (or shall we say, International Night 2011?)

NUS MBA Chinese New Year Celebrations: Together in Diversity

Two students blog about their Chinese New Year experiences.

This Year of Tiger came early for NUS MBA students. On February 5, the NUS MBA Student Council staged Chinese New Year Celebrations at Munchie Monkey. Chinese New Year marks the start of new year on the lunar calendar and the start of spring. Though, it was initially celebrated in mainland China, the dispersion of Chinese descendents around the globe now mean that this festival is then celebrated all over the world. Hence, this year Spring Festival in NUS also celebrated diversity. Students from other countries such as Canada, India, Indonesia, Korea, and the Philippines to name the few were being involved with the celebration. We had good food, good entertainment, and most importantly good company… After all, the gist of Chinese New Year celebration is indeed togetherness.
