NUS MBA students from all of the world had a colourful Holi celebration complete with performances, colours, and good food.
NUS Business School has always had a history of celebrating cultural festivals with great excitement and enjoyment. Holi, the Indian festival of colors, was no exception. The event started off with Mihir Mohite describing the history of this festival and the celebration. Mihir sang “Chalat Musafir” as other members of the cohort pitch in.
Jenny Costelloe, President of the Nanyang Business School-CSR Club shares her experience and key takeaways from the CSR Kaleidoscope Conference 2009.
I’ll be honest; I went to the Kaleidoscope 2009 event with mixed expectations: was this going to be yet another presentation on corporate “do-gooding” and donations, or would the NUS Social Impact Club be able to demonstrate a similar interpretation of CSR to my own (which I’ll explain later)? I’m pleased to say that from start to finish, the conference content was a careful balance of “the what, the how and the why” of CSR – and not a single mention of a big cheque!
NUS MBA students Kashif Aslam, Kirti Chopra and Kuruvilla Alexander attended the Berkshire-Hathaway AGM in Omaha.
On the 21st of April in the midst of our final exams, we got a pleasant surprise in the form of an email about the chance to meet the “Sage of Omaha” or more popularly known as Mr. Warren Buffet. The annual pilgrimage to Omaha was happening and the NUS MBA would send its share of disciples.
The reason was Berkshire Hathaway’s Annual General Meeting and the place was Omaha, USA. The event attracts some of the most ardent investors and authorities in the field of finance, all willing to fly from all over the world to hear the Oracle speak.
