Speaking to the Cardiff Metropolitan students in EASB, Prof Chapman said, “I have been in discussion with Prof Chua about this visit, we readily agreed that it would be very important that I should meet with you, because students are the mainstay of the university.” Prof Chapman also expressed his gratitude to the long lasting partnership between CMU and EASB, commenting that, “A close partnership ensures that we have appropriate students and that we never jeopardise our quality of teaching and our degrees. This in turn, guarantees the stability of our relationship and ours (with EASB) spans across 8 years and I feel we have developed into something closer of a family relationship.”

Following Prof Chapman’s speech, students were able to interact with the guests and faculty from CMU via a Q&A session.

Rounding up the visit, our honoured guests from CMU received a small token of appreciation, in the form of customised CMU teddy bears from our Cardiff Met undergraduates.
