You must be wondering how we have ended up in Shanghai. Well that's quite a short story : first we were lucky for it's not in all French "régions" that students are given such an opportunity. We were indeed all thrilled when our teachers came up with a proposal, EMLyon Business School was to take 3 students in each high school to the stunning Chinese city : what a windfall !!! Thanks to this partnership, for ten days the select few would be living as EMLyon students at Shanghai's East China Normal University. And then came the hard part : 3 is not much, that's why we are so grateful that we were selected. On top of that, most of us had never traveled outside Europe or to Asia before. Thus we've created this blog so we can share with you our experience, what we've discovered and learned in Shanghai. No doubt it will serve you as it will serve us in our future career, for a better understanding of the world we're going to have to act in.
