Student Leadership Forum

3 – 6 February 2011

From 3 – 6 February 2011, student representatives selected from the world’s top business schools attended the Beta Gamma Sigma Student Leadership Forum in Florida, USA. The Forum is a biannual leadership event hosted by Beta Gamma Sigma, the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

The Beta Gamma Sigma Student Leadership Forum brings together student members from colleges and universities from across the world for an opportunity to improve their leadership skills. A hands-on experience, the Student Leadership Forum challenges and engages the selected participants to join in a variety of both interactive individual and team activities designed to strengthen and develop their personal leadership styles, working with other student leaders and attending a variety of lectures and presentations.

Sihui Zeng, a final year undergraduate business student at the Business School was inducted into Beta Gama Sigma on Founders’ Day on Wednesday 16 February 2011. Due to her high academic achievements, Sihui was selected to attend the recent Student Leadership Forum. Speaking about her experience, she said:

 “I really appreciated the opportunity to attend the Beta Gamma Sigma Student Leadership Forum as it was one of the most unforgettable experiences in my life. Participating in a variety of interesting group activities enabled me to appreciate the spirit of teamwork and cooperation. The sessions helped me to learn more about my personality and leadership style; and more importantly about what ‘tools’ I will need to add to my ‘leadership tool-box’ in order to become a better leader in the future. The most inspirational part of the experience was to meet and bond with so many fellow students from different cultures and backgrounds, and yet sharing the same uncertainties, dreams, core values and goals. I firmly believe that the reflections and the friendship gained from the forum will be valuable assets in my life.”
