     On the evening of Sunday December 20th, 2015, students and faculty of Peking University HSBC business school gathered at the five star Intercontinental Hotel Shenzhen to celebrate the holidays and ring in the New Year with friends, colleagues, and special guests from local Shenzhen financial firms.

     Professor Hai Wen, Founding Dean of the PKU HSBC Business School and chancellor for Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School, delivered a memorable opening speech urging students to utilize the school’s tremendous resources to forge their own path and pursue their dreams with integrity, stressing the moral grounding that the business school curriculum imparts upon students. He also expressed dedication on behalf of administration and faculty to continue to expand PHBS’ reach internationally and to further enhance both the internal quality of the school’s education as well as its external reputation.

     Attendees were then treated to ten amazing student performances from each class of students, ranging from energetic pop dance routines to heartfelt renditions of Chinese love ballads. Standout performances abounded, including high energy dance routines from the university’s Nanyan Street Dance Club and a full-band opening performance from the 2014 Finance-Economics Dual Degree Class.

     Great food and wine flowed endlessly once the performances ended until the night was officially over, with students from each class proposing a toast to health and happiness in the New Year. At the end of the night, students congregated in an excited frenzy outside to finish taking pictures with their friends both old and new and make plans for the night still ahead.
