The quest for wisdom, from France to China, of an HEC MBA & Tsinghua MBA dual degree student (class of 2011)
Archive for February, 2011
Chinese new year is the most important public celebration in the Chinese calendar. It is also a holiday opportunity which allows everyone to return to their families in the respective regions.
And class started again yesterday with, in particular, one class which may well be one of the most interesting of my MBA experience and which tells me that coming to Tsinghua for double degree was really the right choice.
This year has been a very dry winter in Beijing with what could well be the worst drought in a century.
It’s particularly worrying for farmers in surrounding regions as no water means no crop, and no crop means lesser / more expensive food, and that means, well you know, very big troubles…
So it is with relief that we saw snow fall twice this week. Apparently it was helped by could seeding canons used by the government to provoke snow fall. (See more here)
I, like other people, felt a great sense of joy when I saw my neighbourhood blanketed in white. It’s great to hear the children play snowballs.
PS: You may have noticed but I changed camera… My pictures will now be in a 2/3 format.
Welcome to my new blog!
I’ve decided to change the name of my blog to better reflect the reality of my activities since I’m now following the second phase of my cursus in China.
As you may have noticed, the website has undergone a major layout update.
And update your bookmarks :)
As you noticed, I have sort of let down my blog since I arrived in China. The reason is that I had dificulties, intellectually, to write a feedback about China and Tsinghua in a blog titled HEC MBA.
So here’s the start of a new blog which will take into account both sides of my story.
I hope you’ll keep reading me here :)
And what a better day to start this new blog than the Chinese New Year ?
Hail to the rabbit!
