Shenandoah University students in China donate thousands of PPE
Several students and partners in Shenandoah University’s global Master of Business Administration program in China have conducted a personal protective equipment (PPE) drive. They have sent approximately 3,000 respirator masks, 12,000 surgical masks, 50 isolation gowns, and 1,250 pairs of surgical gloves to Shenandoah University. The University is now distributing the equipment to health care professionals and frontline employees.
Shenandoah University’s Master of Business Administration – Global Executive Track , or GET-MBA, is a 36-credit, 12-month degree program that takes place at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, China. Started in fall of 2019, the first semester had approximately 25 Chinese students enrolled. The program is led by Dr. Yvonne Chen, associate dean of global initiatives at the Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business.
“Special thanks go to GET-MBA Shanghai student Mr. Ruigang Wong, Mr. John Wong of Yumeng Enterprise (YME), and Mr. Gary Zeng (SU undergraduate student) for their generous support and contributions to this PPE drive,” Dr. Chen said.
