There were more than 50 attendees at our early Xmas party in Japan on Dec 1st. Alumni from UoM and AMBS mingled with current students and those about to start their MBA journey. It was a fun evening for everyone with games including International beer relay, Japanese Paper/Rock/Scissors and a typical British Univ pub quiz. The photos testify to the warm ambience. Old friendships were renewed and the foundations were laid for new acquaintances to become future friends and colleagues. Arrangements went like clockwork, thanks to the unstinting support of Nick, Yoshino, Tanny and Ron: to them we owe a huge vote of thanks.
