Convocation of the Second Cohort at BNUZ 2019

Congratulations to the 68 graduates who celebrated their accomplishments on Saturday, June 29th in Zhuhai at the BNUZ-SMU Joint Bachelor of Commerce Convocation.

A SMU delegation led by President Robert Summerby-Murray together with Dr. Harjeet Bhabra, the new Dean of Sobey School of Business, as well as Dr. Malcolm Butler, Vice President of Academic & Research, travelled to Beijing Normal University in Zhuhai to celebrate 68 students graduating from our Joint Bachelor of Commerce program. Some alumni from Hong Kong and from other parts of China also attended and acted as the Alumni Honour Guard for the ceremony.

We took a selfie of all three of us representing SMU alumni from Hong Kong.

I understand that BNUZ’s status will be upgraded over the next few years. There are new buildings under construction and major renovation projects on the campus. I am looking forward to seeing a new look of BNUZ and seeing a closer relationship with Saint Mary’s University in the near future.
