We Came, We Saw, We Conquered: UNC Kenan-Flagler

If you’ve been following our previous posts about Cerebration 2013, you know that the grand finale of Cerebration 2013 was a culmination of many months of hard work and fierce competition among some 650 teams. Three incredibly smart MBA teams battled for the coveted grand prize in the finals of Cerebration 2013, held on 14 November 2013.

The finalists were tasked to propose innovative, implementable and scalable solutions to real business challenges faced by case sponsors – ideas that have the potential to impact the future of society in areas such as personal mobility in mega-cities, personal technology and food security in emerging economies.

The Bizad Spirit, As I Know It

We recently wrote about the NUS Business Camp 2013. A better way to elaborate on it is to hear a first-hand account by an incoming BBA student.

Kenneth Lou Kok Juin, a first-year BBA student at NUS Business School shares his reflections about the NUS Business Camp 2013 and his impression of the School so far.

I begin this post by a brief introduction: I am a freshman in the Business Administration (BBA) programme and a University Scholars Program (USP) student for the year 2013-14. I’m also an avid tennis player training hard to make it into Team NUS. I have an encouraging brother in NUS BBA doing his third year soon. He is my main academic inspiration. I did my ‘A’ Levels in Nanyang Junior College and was fortunate to do reasonably well.

The past few months have been hectic for me. It was in the end of May when I first started asking around my seniors which camps I could possibly join and meet new people. Continue reading

More than Business at a Business Camp

It is not every day that you see fresh new faces, dancing in groups around campus, practising for what it seems is the next hottest reality TV dance competition – especially not at a business school.  But it is these kinds of sightings like this that make the NUS Business School experience ever-so-interesting:  the students in question were practising for a cheer-fight competition as a part of NUS Business Camp 2013.

The NUS Students’ Business Club (more commonly known as the Bizad Club) is the core student leadership body representing all undergraduates pursuing the Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor in Business Administration in Accountancy (BAC)degrees in NUS Business School. The Bizad club organises many academic and social events throughout the year, and one of the first events that kick-starts a new year for the freshmen is the NUS Business Camp.This camp, solely run and managed by students, is unlike the usual camps involving outdoor cooking or sleeping in tents – it is much more geared towards encouraging the new incoming undergraduate students to forge friendships within the School community that will ease their transition into university life through a wider range of activies.  This year’s Business Camp, which took place from 10-13 June, featured four days and three nights of non-stop fun during which freshmen got to know what NUS Business School life will really be about, before the school starts. There were sessions such as mass dance segments, presentation on orientation projects, cheer-fight competitions  and a day outing at Sentosa; in addition to the countless socials and dinners

“When I attended the camp last year, it helped me tremendously to make new friends and I really learned a lot from the seniors. So here I am as a camp senior, to give back to the camp and the school,” said a second-year BBA student, Wei Jian who we managed to talk during the camp. And the freshmen seem to agree with Jian. “This camp has been an incredible experience for me and if this is any indication for things to come; I’m indeed looking forward to my time here. I’m impressed with the calibre of seniors who manage this all by themselves,” observed Lou Kok Juin Kenneth, an incoming first year BBA student.

All in all, the camp provided a good ground for some serious mingling among students to make them feel at home.

Congratulations and a warm welcome to all our incoming undergraduate students!
