In celebration of the elevation of Manchester Business School Worldwide East Asia Centre to University level at its 25th anniversary, a Renaming Ceremony themed “Legacy of Excellence Future of Innovation” was organised at the East Asia Centre on 7 September 2017 (Thursday). The School is now renamed as The University of Manchester Worldwide (UMW) that dedicates to provide all-round support to students and alumni.
We were honoured that Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell (The President & Vice-Chancellor), Ms Christina Siu (Regional Director of UMW), Dr Eric Li (Chairman of HKFUM) and Mr James Gallagher (Deputy Trade Commissioner, Department of International Trade, British Consulate-General) officiated at the Lighting Ceremony.
With 100 highly influential participants including senior officials and industry leaders from various sectors, sponsor of the event, delegates of prestigious professional organisations as well as UoM’s outstanding students and alumni, we were excited to celebrate this milestone and share this memorable occasion. Without your tremendous support, this event would not have been so successful.
