2021 Social Outreach Seminars: Inviting Experts to Lecture


Feb 16, 2022

APU arranges Social Outreach Seminars throughout the academic year, inviting business representatives, entrepreneurs, and distinguished experts to speak with students. Each seminar is an opportunity for students to learn skills and knowledge needed in the workplace. Due the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, 5 of the 13 seminars were held online, but nevertheless a total of 1,140 people participated. It was a valuable opportunity for them to hear directly from experts on the front lines who gave them new goals, ideas, and suggestions.
