The 6th Yale-China/L(U)C Symposium on Global Strategic Leadership and the 1st Oxford-China/L(U)C Symposium on Global Strategic Leadership

 

From January 15th to January 22nd, sophomores from Lingnan (University) College paid a visit to Yale University and Oxford University to participate in the “Symposium on Global Strategic Leadership 2017”.

 

As one of the major international programs of Lingnan (University) College, the Symposium on Global Strategic Leadership aims to broaden students’ global horizons and cultivate their cross-cultural communication skills, critical thinking and sense of social responsibility. The students worked together, discussing global issues like population, environmental pollution, and business ethics, as well as analyzing and giving presentations on some enterprises. During the winter vacation each year, a few sophomores from Lingnan are selected to pay a one-week visit in the U.S or England and give a report on their project while later on, students from Yale and Oxford set off for China to share their ideas with our students. This year, the theme is "CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) in the Globalizing World".
