Students Take Advantage of International Guest Speakers, Field Trips
On November 23rd, students had the opportunity to report on a guest lecture by Albert Ip, managing director of investments, Asia Pacific, at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. He spoke about post-financial crisis risk management – a topic that GBJ students found particularly helpful. One student, Jia Qi Bao wrote, “In addition to enlightening curious students about the banking industry, Mr. Ip also candidly shared his insights about the golden rules to succeed in competitive career fields like banking.”
Thirteen students rounded out their busy month by taking a field trip to two major media organizations on November 29. The first stop was The Global Times, where senior editors Patrick Kearn and Cong Mu encouraged students to submit freelance features. The group also went to the Caixin Media Company, a new venture that is releasing a website and two new magazines: New Century Weekly and China Reform. Editors there also urged students to apply for internships.
