Blockchain has been evolving rapidly since the publication of “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” by Satoshi Nakamoto. Some even claim blockchain to be the next disruptive innovation for a number of traditional industries. But how applicable is this technology in reality and what impact will it have on traditional industries? Please join us for a panel discussion on this topic at the Yale Center Beijing on April 12 at 7pm.

Time: 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Check-in Begins 6:30 p.m.

Coming and Going - Catherine Feng

Catherine Feng, SOM 09 and our Director of Speakers Series, has taken up the position of Deputy Director at Yale School of Management’s Career Development Office. We thank her for her past service to the community. While we are sorry to see her leave, we are happy that she is continuing to work with Yalies and will be visiting Beijing from time to time. (In fact, she was at the Feb Club on her first trip back to Beijing.) Potential employers, take note of this valuable contact for Yale-trained talents. If you have or know of any job openings and would like to spread the news to the whole SOM student body, Catherine would be the best person to contact. While she works for the SOM, she’d be happy to re-direct employers who are interested in students from other graduate or professional schools or undergraduate colleges. Catherine’s email is catherine.yuhui.feng@yale.edu.
