MIT Better World

A Celebration of MIT in Beijing

MIT hosted Better World (Beijing) on November 12 at the Bvlgari Hotel in Beijing's Chaoyang District. The alumni community event marked the Institute's largest-ever gathering of MIT graduates in Greater China on record. The evening included a reception and program featuring a sit-down conversation with President L. Rafael Reif.

Reif shared his reflections on MIT’s recent milestone moments, including the creation of the MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing and the opening of the MIT.nano building, and he encouraged the more than 250 alumni and guests to stay engaged with the Institute and with one another.

Later, event attendees had the opportunity to connect with several members of the faculty visiting Beijing for the MIT China Summit and learn firsthand how their work is furthering MIT’s leadership in education, research, and innovation.
