The 24th of November was the Alumni Day for all former generations of Solvay. Many of them didn’t hesitate to face the threat of the typhoon for the pleasure to spend time with their friends and take part to the ceremony. And they were right!
Arriving progressively, the guests had time to enjoy the charm of Villa Song. Situated along the river and surrounded by glowing lights, the place spreads with simplicity its positive energy!
The reunion started with a speech of the Dean of Solvay Vietnam, Michel Allé and the Operation Manager of Solvay, Hélène Lambillon, coming especially from France.
This year, emphasis has been put on the following question:
7 years after the graduation, the MBAVB2 still communicate and meet regularly via Viber. 42 people are on the group, a bit more than 20 of them are still active.The last time they saw each other? One week ago, during the Annual tennis tournament! Sport event, homemade dinner and other kind of festivities, they always find a way to share cheerful and memorable time together.
For others, the bonds are more professionals. One former student shared the benefits of attending the class of guest speakers. Indeed, the optional courses offered to Solvay’s students, are lead by guest speakers which are most of the time vietnameses. They represent a high potential for network and collaboration. Our alumni experienced himself a fruitful partnership with one of his teacher. These experiences are the proof that Solvay is a great creator of social bonds.
With the support of Beluxcham, our fellow alumni got the opportunity to test their senses trying 5 different types of renowned Belgium beers.The explanations and the pinch of humour of Mr. Dương Quang Huy, representative of Duvel Beer in Vietnam were a big help to guide the assembly. Besides, the performance was the perfect preparation for the Beer festival following the Alumni Day.
