On 16 October, over 50 alumni and students in Tokyo joined together to rekindle old friendships and establish new relationships. It was our honour to have MBA Program Director, Mr. Xavier Duran and Associate MBA Director, Dr. Jiyao Xun present for the networking event. Xavier shared information about the recent updates and the planned future development: most importantly, he invited UM stakeholders to visit the new AMBS building in Manchester! Arrangements went like clockwork and our special thanks to Akihiro Yoshida, the Master of Ceremonies, and to Hitomi Noguchi and Kazuo Kobayashi for being the helpers and providing creative networking ideas. A fruitful survey of the Workshop In Two Centres provided the benchmark for the AMBS offering electives for students in Japan. All the participants enjoyed a relaxed night with great food and nice wine.
