About the Symposium on Global Leadership

The Yale-China Association/Lingnan (University) College Symposium on Global Leadership brings together 16 students from Yale with 24 students from Lingnan (University) College at Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China to think about issues facing the future generation of business leaders in the United States and China. The Symposium was jointly developed by Yale-China and Lingnan (University) College with the goal of building one-on-one relationships between students in the U.S. and China with an interest in business and society and U.S.-China relations.

For the 2014 Symposium, teams of five students (two from Yale University and three from Lingnan (University) College) will work together on a project related to the central theme of the exchange, to be presented at a competition in New Haven. The teams will work with faculty advisors from L(U)C and communicate using email, Skype, or other Internet platforms to develop their strategies before the L(U)C students’ visit in January/February 2014. Previous topics have included corporate social responsibility and corporate ethics.

In addition to the competition portion of the program, students will attend a series of academic lectures in New Haven designed to foster new ideas on social engagement by the business sector.
