Xuan Zang Road International Business School’s 13th annual Gobi Challenge met with a new contender this year! The seasoned team from the CUHK EMBA (Chinese) Program was joined for the very first time by their fellows from the MBA Program in Finance (FMBA).

On the evening of 30 April, contestants gathered for the Opening Ceremony at Wen Bo Yuan in Dunhuang. The School Leader, Prof. Kalok Chan, Dean of CUHK Business School, made the trip to the desert from Hong Kong to offer his blessing and encouragement to the CUHK teams.

Spanning 2 to 5 May, this year’s Gobi Challenge was attended by nearly 3,000  students, alumni and faculty members of MBA and EMBA programs across mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, France and the United States. They participated in the 4-day event by trekking across a 114-kilometre stretch of the Gobi desert. The new FMBA team comprised eight alumni and staff, who were all excited to take part for the first time. The other team, led by program director Prof. Jeff Yeung, comprised 27 EMBA (Chinese) Program alumni.

Throughout their journey, the CUHK contestants proved their team spirit again and again as they conquered the extreme weather and unpredictable conditions of the desert. They gave their all in the spirit of the Gobi Challenge, which was “Ideal, Action and Persistence”.
