11 Jun, 2019 in Padua

The University of Padova is one of the oldest universities in the world, dating back to the 13th century. A few months ago I attended a seminar at the university, and there would be all sorts of tours taking us to see various historical parts of the campus. The first session was held in the […]

27 Apr, 2019 in HK Places

After all these years in Hong Kong there are still areas and university campuses I have not been to. One such example is the Education University of Kong campus, up near Tai Po Market. It is only recently that I made my way up to the northern part of Hong Kong to finally visit that […]

20 Apr, 2019 in Jerusalem

I spent many years coming in and out of the Hebrew University Mount Scopus campus, and never really appreciated it much. It was only earlier this year that I had the chance to come back and visit after many years being away and roam around a bit, experiencing nostalgia, and even being able to enjoy […]

18 Apr, 2019 in Singapore

Last time I visited Singapore was in 2014, so a visit was long overdue. I got an invite to come over and spend some time with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) at the very far west side of Singapore, away from the Singaporean hustle bustle center, though nothing in Singapore is ever very far. I spend […]

23 Aug, 2018 in Normandy

In my recent visit to France I had a chance to visit some of the local universities. I spent some time in Paris Nanterre University and roamed around Paris, but also had a chance to go visit Normandy and visit a former classmate now faculty in NOEMA, one of the French international business schools. It’s a nice […]

20 Aug, 2018 in Paris

During the summer of 2018 I was invited to visit Paris Nanterre University and was hosted by some of the local professors. I arrived after several hectic weeks of student demonstration, so the campus was severely damaged, and filled with graffiti, all quite shocking. That tragedy aside, the old campus is quite compact and easily walkable, […]

Located in Shanghai, it’s considered a very prestigious program for Chinese future leaders offering intense short programs to train the next generation managers in China and the world. One of the business professors I […]

10 Mar, 2018 in Cambridge

In my last visit to the UK I had a few days to explore the lovely old town of Cambridge and venture into some of the inner courts of the college campuses with a host professor. During that time there was also an open day for the university, so there was unrestricted access to some […]

14 Sep, 2017 in Vienna

To wrap up my conference trip to Vienna, I’ll take you on a walking tour I did on the last two days around the Vienna canals, parks, and university area. The two days had very different weather, so you’ll be able to see rainy and cloudy Vienna and blue-skies Vienna.   Shall we?   Canals […]

8 Aug, 2017 in Geneva

I arrived at Geneva early morning and had half a day to explore around before work called. I started with the Saint-Pierre Cathedral for grand views of the city and the Geneva lake, and then made my way to the university area, located near the Parc des Bastions, a lovely area to explore and see face to […]
