This past Wednesday, WildChina sponsored the Greater China Club’s (GCC) annual party at Harvard Business School. The GCC aims to engage HBS students in one of the world’s most dynamic economies on business, economic, and social issues. But this night was all about celebrating Chinese style — toasting, listening to some of China’s up and coming pop artists, and relaxing with students and young professionals across Harvard’s professional schools and other top academic institutions in Boston.
WildChina founder Mei Zhang graduated from Harvard Business in 1996 and has stayed involved ever since. Each year, Mei returns to Harvard Business to present the WildChina case study, first created in 2008 and later refined in 2011. Over the years, WildChina has hosted Harvard MBA students during their summers to experience working in China.
During the party, students enjoyed the Chinese style decorations and danced the night away–after all, everyone needs a break from studying. In addition to helping sponsor the party, WildChina’s hotel partners donated a two-night overnight stay in Beijing at the The Peninsula and a three-night stay at the Waldorf Astoria in Shanghai for lucky draw winners. The Peninsula Beijing is well known for their impeccable service and delicious dining at Jing, while the newly opened Waldforf Astoria has gained a huge following for their rooms overlooking the Bund. Like the GCC, we hope that this party will encourage US-based students trip to come visit China.
Congrats to the GCC for throwing a great event and WildChina looks forward to continue to mentor and grow younger business school students.
