For the second consecutive year, the Carlson Global Institute collaborated with the Carlson School’s Alumni Relations office, the China Executive MBA team, the University of Minnesota Beijing office, and the University of Minnesota alumni chapter in Shanghai to host alumni events in conjunction with Carlson School student programs traveling to Shanghai and Guangzhou this January. The events provide an opportunity for current Carlson School students and alumni to connect and interact in meaningful ways, establish new relationships, and share mutual interests.
“During the Alumni Reception Dinner, I met several individuals from the Vienna Executive MBA program who gave us a different perspective on managing businesses in addition to our first-hand experiences,” says Joe Bostrom, a Part-Time MBA student who participated in the Guangzhou event. “One gentleman I met is currently working in an industry that I would like to be involved in. He gave me some good advice on the industry, and I hope to stay in contact with him in the future.”
