On July 9th, President Laackman presented, for his first time, diplomas to three students from Shanghai graduating from our M.S. in Emergent Media program. Frank Liu, Chairman of the Jiuyou Fund, Deputy to the National People’s Congress, Executive Committee Member of the Shanghai Commission of Science and Technology, and Vice President of the Shanghai Modern Service Industry Association, was our keynote speaker. A fourth student who participated in the program has decided to stay on to complete her M.F.A. here in Burlington.
After completion of this first year of the program, we are going to take a year off to “reboot” and incorporate what we have learned and to recruit for a class to begin in Shanghai fall of 2015.
