Foucauld Watine, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about his experiences at Sun Yat-Sen Business School.
If you can seize the opportunity of an exchange program – do it! I experienced Guangzhou but I am not sure everybody enjoys this city. I am far from saying it’s beautiful, no, but it’s highly instructive. Guangdong Capital, located on the shores of the Pearl River delta, is the cradle of world´ manufacturing. Therefore this place grabs attention of anybody who wants to benefit from its infinite supply capacities. The fascinatingly complex Chinese culture is mixed with Cantonese culture but it doesn’t get the things more difficult than anywhere else in China – it hardly can!

Operaviva: “The way this city developed in these last five years is though monstrous and I am not talking about its size or population, both of which are impressive, of course.”
Minds Abroad Blog: “Guangzhou is the center of several large, medium-sized and small enterprises that make it one of the main manufacturing hubs of the Pearl River Delta. For a new traveler, Guangzhou offers a lot of unique opportunities for exploration.”
GuangJoe: “The following article was written after a self-guided tour. Many information needed to be deduced, estimated or in some rare cases, completely fabricated.”
n25: “Trying to understand the intentions and aspirations of Chinese millennials is fascinating. I like to think of it as trying to understand the rags to riches story of a generation who have grown up watching their country blossom from a developing nation to an up-and-coming global leader.”
Maria Precioso: “With a bike, you can go places that would otherwise be difficult to access by car or foot. And they just look unbelievably cool really.”
