Hugo and Lila, who have both spent a study semester in Guangzhou at Sun Yat Sen Business School, are in the third year of the Grande Ecole Programme at Burgundy School of Business.

In order to share their experiences meeting new people; their thoughts, their feelings and their discoveries, they have created the site Rions Cantonais. On it, most importantly, you can find interviews with entrepreneurs, managers or young graduates based in China, but also articles that are a little less serious and reports of the two students' road trips in China.

The press has already reported on this good idea:

  • Ecoles2Commerce (19 December 2011)
  • Le Mouv’(28 January 2012), with a first-hand account on "Allo la Planète", a radio show.

Currently back in France for a month, Lila and Hugo will return to Guangzhou very soon, because they have each secured their final internships … in one of the companies they interviewed for Rions Cantonais! This is how to combine the useful and the enjoyable.
