Last November in Hong Kong, took place another "Get Together" at Zoobeetle, Shop&Restaurant concept store in the trendy Sheung Wan district.
About 35 emlyon alumni or students, who have not finished their program yet, were happy to share drinks (Great wines, actually, selected by the in house sommelière) and snacks, and share their experience of the vibrant Asian city.
Hong Kong is indeed location to numerous Asian headquarters and many students come for a few months to work for a semester or more. There is a really strong turnover of students coming from Lyon or from the Shanghai Campus too.
These "get together" are indeed a great opportunity for the local alumni who have spent a few years in Hong Kong (many have "double digit" already) to meet new students, and on the other side, for the newcomers to get some perspective and advice from their more senior peers.
Next Get Together: sometime in February, after Chinese New Year!
