For an experience that will last a lifetime, travel with us to China, a country that claims a history of 5,000 years. Throughout the journey, we will compare and contrast business in China with business in the United States. By experiencing for yourself the rural-urban dichotomy, the co-existence of communism and capitalism and the effects that the current economic boom has had on the environment, you will gain an awareness of the effect that China’s culture, history, and political ideology have played in shaping China’s role in the global economy.

MSUM student earns job on Wall Street, chosen among Ivy League students
By Meghan Feir
It’s been said that sometimes, all it takes is one chance to get your foot in the door, and in Minnesota State University Moorhead student Dang Pham’s case, that phrase is more than appropriate.
Pham, a senior at MSUM, reached out to various banks across the country to show his interest in the field of investment banking. Two thousand emails later, 1,999 of which didn’t receive much interest, one bank did ask for an interview. It just happened to be from the hub of all things finance – Wall Street.
Originally from Viet Nam, Pham has been at MSUM for three years, and in that time, he has shared his interest for finance in various ways. As the business manager of The Advocate, MSUM’s campus newspaper, Pham has had hands-on experience working with area businesses. He has also been the bookkeeper for MSUM’s Art & Design Department.

This article is from Valley News Live.
Today 425 students at Minnesota State University in Moorhead wrapped up their college experience. The world is waiting for them. But one graduate who chose not to walk, for personal reasons, has already seen much of the world. North Dakota Army National Guardsman Sam Floberg shares his story of getting through college after the war in Afghanistan changed his game plan.
A four year degree wasn’t always in Sam Floberg’s game plan. He enjoyed work as an electrician and heck, he was good at it.
