Mark Wlodawski, an international MBA student at the University of Memphis, has been selected to participate in the Shanghai World Expo 2010 Student Ambassadors Program. Wlodawski will serve as an intern during the program’s first session April 15-July 31. A student on the International MBA’s China track, he will leave for Shanghai on April 10 to volunteer at the Expo.

The Expo expects to draw more than 70 million visitors during its run, May 1-Oct. 31. More than 200 countries, companies, and organizations will present examples of their scientific discoveries, technological developments, and cultures to visitors to their pavilions.

Wlodawski was one of 180 students selected to represent the United States in China. While at the Expo, he will intern with the accounting firm Deloitte & Touche to gain a greater knowledge of global finance and economics.

In 2007, the Confucius Institute at the University of Memphis, under the leadership of Dr. Hsiang-te Kung, helped Wlodawski develop his knowledge of Chinese and economics by creating the B.L.S. program in Asian Studies and International Trade (ASIT). He was among the founders of a Chinese club in 2008 and served as its president until he graduated in May 2009.

In August 2009, Wlodawski enrolled in the Fogelman College of Business & Economics’ International MBA program, where he continues to focus on China.

His parents are Josef Wlodawski of Memphis and the late Marilyn Wlodawski. His brother, Samuel Wlodawski, is a paralegal studies major at the U of M.

“Mark is the first graduate of our Asian Studies and International Trade program,” said Kung. “After he graduated from our ASIT program, he was admitted to the IMBA program. Mark is a graduate assistant in the Confucius Institute, where he helps students and performs administrative functions. We are very happy that our program has made a big difference in his life.”
