Dual Degree students participate in a unique international business plan competition in London

"This experience was really really great."


"It's actually a fantastic moment to see we are growing in such a short period of time!"

The competition brought together 41 top students from US, UK, Brazil, Korea and Hong Kong to work on Green Business proposals on "Building a more sustainable Olympics London 2012".  Students from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC), London South Bank University (LSBU), University of Sao Paulo (USP), Seoul National University (SNU) and HKUST T&M Program formed teams with each comprising students from different universities.
 
The event was not only a competition, but also a real experience in London.
 
Students visited the Olympic Stadium, Science Museum and Natural History Museum, as well as attended seminars on sustainable development from prominent guest speakers.

Throughout the competition, T&M students shared different cultures with their teammates, and developed team spirit, problem-solving skills, as well as friendship with each other.   Students made great progress in business analysis, case study and business presentation through the whole process.
