One-week field study trip of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in June 2019

Last month, we were very pleased to host a group of Bachelor and Master students from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) for a week of field study trip. CUHK is a prestigious university in Asia, establishing international partnership with University of Lausanne since 1990s.

Combining courses and visits of Swiss companies such as REUGE, Swissquote and Maurice Lacroix SA as well as an international organization – UNCTAD, these Chinese students got to know more about Swiss economics environment and corporate culture. They also had a great opportunity to exchange with their peers of HEC Lausanne during the welcome reception. What a rich and international learning experience !

We are already looking forward to the field study trip program next year !
