Commending the initiative, Dr. J. Singh, Chairperson - International Relations at XLRI remarked, "It is truly a reflection of the powerful path on which the unique Global MBA program travels. The event was truly an excellent event for networking and connecting with Chinese business exchange students' part of the Global MBA with those from the rest of campus. This first Chinese New Year Celebration at XLRI by the Global Cohort will hopefully be a tradition for years to come."
