Hi everyone, hope everything is going well! It’s been a long time since my last post. The fall quarter of my second year has been super busy, but I really enjoy it because to challenge myself is an important part of my MBA life. Today I am writing this blog not only as a Simon Ambassador, but also as a representative from the Simon Asian Club introducing our club to you.
Diversity is a key feature of the Simon Community since students and faculty from different countries all over the world make up Simon’s unique international environment and close atmosphere. Simon Asian Club is one of the active contributors to Simon’s diversity, especially in promoting and introducing Asian Culture and improving multilateral understanding.
The Simon Asian Club focuses on introducing Asian Culture to all Simon community members and providing a unique cultural experience. The annual Asian Trip is our club’s most important event. During the past several years, we have organized an Asian Trip to countries including Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong, etc. Besides the cultural experience, we also offered corporate visits to top global companies during the trip, which provided fresh business experience and networking opportunities to Simon Students. Some participants even got job opportunities throughout the trip! All the past participants were extremely satisfied with the trip and endorsed our trip as being one of the most precious experiences at Simon, and this is indeed how we realized that our club’s target is to provide more eye-opening experiences to students.
With the holiday season approaching, guess what makes me most excited? Our Asian Trip group this year is going to Tokyo, Japan! I am so looking forward to this trip since we are going to enjoy our Christmas and New Year during the trip. I just cannot help imagining how much fun it will be during our Christmas Eve Karaoke party or the New Year countdown cruise! The 10 day trip includes visits to many landmarks in Tokyo, all kinds of cultural experience and food tasting, as well as corporate visits to 8 top international companies. I am sure that all the participants will have a great experience there!
So it’s time for me to fight through my final exams and pack for my coming trip. May all of you have a great Christmas holiday and a happy New Year! Please stay tuned for a future update after the trip; I’ll see you in the New Year!
P.S. For all the prospective students, please don’t forget to submit your application as early as possible before enjoying your holiday season!
