SEM Reunion 2019
“Though our branches grow in different directions, our roots remain as one."
Reuniting in the last week of 2019, all 9 batches of SMU Emerging Markets were gathered back in SMU on 23rd December. The night began with dinner and sharing from founding members of SEM and continued over drinks. Besides getting to know the newly minted 9th batch of Analysts, it was an meaningful and enriching opportunity for SEM members to connect over professional and personal experiences. We look forward to seeing full strength at our 8th annual Alumni Night in 2020!
A big thank you to everyone making 2019 another successful year for SMU Emerging Markets! Our sincere gratitude to SMU School of Accountancy, especially SEM’s Advisory Committee - Professors Low Aik Meng, Wang Jiwei and Yuanto Kusnadi, and Office of Alumni Relations for their unending support thus far!

We are fortunate to be joined by a panel of esteemed industry professionals with extensive experience in this space!
