HKU Business School, together with The HKU Business School Alumni Association and HKU iCube, was pleased and honored to host the distinguished Dr. Weijian Shan for a captivating “Meet the Author” book talk on the evening of December 1. Dr. Shan discussed his latest book, “Money Machine – A Trailblazing American Venture in China”, which provides an intriguing insider’s perspective on one of the most significant private equity deals in the industry’s history: the first and only foreign acquisition of a Chinese national bank. His other well-received previous books include “Out of Gobi: My Story of China and America” and “Money Games: The Inside Story of How American Dealmakers Saved Korea’s Most Iconic Bank”. Dr. Shan, who transformed from a barefoot doctor in the Gobi during the Cultural Revolution to a world-leading private equity titan, delivered an enlightening presentation. He was also a former professor at the Wharton School. The event also featured a captivating fireside chat moderated by our Dean, Professor Cai Hongbin. It was particularly exciting to see the attendance of numerous Wharton alumni, who had the opportunity to connect with our own students and graduates. Will this be Dr. Shan’s final book? We surely hope not and eagerly await to hear what’s in store for Dr. Shan’s next chapter. We express our gratitude for the support from the Wharton Club of Hong Kong.
