Chinese students were invited to the Student Plaza, Fudan University, in Shanghai, China,to take part in Norway Day on 15 April.
Norway Day was hosted by the Nordic Centre at Fudan University and supported by the Royal Norwegian Consulate General in Shanghai, the Norwegian Seafood Council and others.
The purpose was to inform Chinese students about Norway as a country, our culture, education and business possibilities. The students learned more about cross-culture leadership, listened to a Chinese young professional sharing her experience from the BI-Fudan MBA program, and got a sneak peak of the quickly developing 3D game industry by a Norwegian Art Director. Along with the presentations, there was also arranged a quiz about Norway and a lucky draw.
The event was held in the main building at the Student Plaza with approximately 200-250 attending the happening. Fresh Norwegian salmon brought from the Arctic and Norwegian waffles made on the spot was served while Shanghai Brass Brothers played Norwegian and Chinese tunes.
