More than 40 alumni got together for a lunch gathering on 16 June at the Tasty BBQ Seafood Restaurant in North York. The event was organised by the Ontario Alumni Network, whose members are all graduates of CUHK Business School and the Department of Economics at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Since its formation in 2014, the network has strived to bring together alumni in Ontario for the betterment of their alma mater, fellow alumni and the community as a whole.
Before lunch, Mr. Jimmy Ma (MBA 1990) from Welbilt led a discussion on big data, a hot topic in the digital era. Mr. Ma started by explaining how big data came about, and its 4Vs: volume, variety, velocity and veracity. He took global companies such as Walmart, Google and Netflix as examples to demonstrate different industry applications of big data, and also gave an illustration of data mining. The group engaged in the discussion enthusiastically, finding his insights relevant and useful. Afterwards, everyone enjoyed catching up with old classmates and friends over a delicious dim sum lunch.
We are grateful to the Ontario Alumni Network for putting together such a wonderful event for fellow alumni in Ontario. The network will continue to organise inspiring and memorable events to connect fellow alumni living in Ontario, Canada.
