Date and TimeJanuary 29th, 2016, 12:00pm – 5:00pm (Conference) and 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm (Networking Reception)

The Contemporary Asian Studies Student Union (CASSU), in collaboration with the Asian Institute will organize a half-day conference, Global Careers through Asia, held at the Munk School of Global Affairs. The conference aims to get students thinking about how to plan for a global career in the twenty-first century, in a world that is no longer rooted in the west. Whether or not students go on to work in Asia, Canada, or anywhere else, Asia plays an important role in the global economy, and the ability to apply the skills and perspectives developed through Asian Studies to their future careers is crucial. Through a keynote presentation on the importance of Asia competence, an industry senior-level experts panel, and two alumni panels, students will receive inspiration and real-life stories from people engaged with Asia in their work. Through breakout unconference sessions, students will reflect on what they’ve learned and apply it to their own personal career goals to identify concrete next steps. The conference will be followed by a networking reception with invited alumni and a speed mentoring session.

Conference is open to all University of Toronto students
