Hong Kong students study Kazakh-Chinese cooperation under ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative at Nazarbayev University
Hong Kong City University conducts one of the modules of its Master program in Global Business Management at Nazarbayev University. Professors and students have classes and seminars with teachers of the Graduate School of Business, visit prominent Kazakh companies (i.e., ERG, AIFC, Agrofirm Rodina and etc.) and have the opportunity to communicate with their leaders. At the end of the course, the students from Hong Kong will have an assignment to evaluate what they have learned in Kazakhstan. Their feedback will be given to the local companies.
This year, the president of Nazarbayev University Shigeo Katsu participated in the ‘One Belt, One Road’ forum in China. Thу role of Kazakhstan as a key player in the ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative was highlighted by professors of Hong Kong City University.
Ziguang Chen, professor of organizational behavior and human resource management, City University of Hong Kong:
‘It wasn’t a random choice to choose Kazakhstan for studying the New Silk Road. Indeed, it was Nazarbayev University where the president of China Xi Jinping announced the ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative in September 2013. Therefore, we have chosen Nazarbayev University to come to with our students for study and exchange.’
