Professor Jeffrey Towson, who teaches the course ‘Legends of Investing’ and is also the best-selling author of ‘The 1 Hour China Book’, will be taking another group of Guanghua MBA students to Omaha this month to visit the legendary investor,  Mr Warren Buffett.


Mr Warren Buffett is extremely popular in China, and according to Prof Towson, China holds enormous investment opportunities for both Mr Buffett and his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway. You can read more of Prof Towson insights here.


This will be the second consecutive year that Peking University Guanghua School of Management MBA students, with Prof Towson leading the team, are going to Omaha for the annual lunch that Mr Warren Buffett organizes with 100+ students from 8 different American universities, with each university sending a group of 20 students, although sometimes he will invite one foreign university to join the prestigious event.


Peking University was the first ever university from Mainland China to have been invited last year, and it’s a privilege to be given the opportunity again to attend the event this year.
