"Bridging the Gap" is a new podcast series initiated by Philip Fischer and Mats Hinrichsen, two undergraduates from the "Future Leaders" International Undergraduate Program of PKU Guanghua.

At PKU Guanghua, students learn a lot about China's culture, business environment and changing geopolitical role. To supplement their studies with a real-world perspective, Philip and Mats started this Podcast and invited their classmates to join their attempt to uncover how senior leaders successfully bridge the cultural gap between China and the West. In the process, listeners will be able to take home some insights into the speaker's respective industry and valuable lessons on how to succeed in the international sphere.

 

In this very first episode,Philip and Mats had the pleasure to dialogue with Rex Gu, CFO of Maersk Asia Pacific Operations.

Rex is a commercially savvy and digitally innovative finance leader with an international career working in Asia, Europe and Australasia. He has a proven track record in sustainable business growth and financial transformation. As a highly self-driven and inspiring leader, Rex is passionate about leading others to success and having impactful communications with a "can-do" & "game-changer" attitude towards challenges and opportunities.

The Guanghua School of Management founded the "Future Leaders" International Undergraduate Double-Degree Program in partnership with 15 of the world’s best business schools, giving students the opportunity to gain an understanding of their local markets while also immersing them in one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic economies in the world: China. This program focuses on admitting top students with outstanding leadership potential from Peking University and its partner institutions. After completing their first two years of study at the institution in their home country, students live and study together with classmates of diverse backgrounds from all over the world—including students from China—for two more years as a single cohort at Peking University.
