Plan a bank raid – students told

Secretarial students at a Chinese university are being asked to plan a bank robbery for an assignment.

They have to work out how to rob a bank with a team of six within seven minutes, reports Information Times.

The students are all majoring in secretarial studies at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies.

They have to come up with a robbery action plan for a team comprising a leader, a lock breaker, a driver, two robbers and a gunman.

Professor He, who came up with the assignment, says it’s aimed at teaching students how to allocate resources economically and efficiently.

“Students majoring in the arts usually do not have the training in thinking deliberately that students majoring in science do. So this also trains their thinking ability,” he said.

The assignment involves teams of five or six students, with each team having to make its own presentation.

One student said: “We’ve never taken an assignment as seriously as this one. On our team, each person came up with a plan, and we picked the best one. We even timed ourselves on the college grounds.”

Professor He doesn’t think the assignment will encourage students to rob a bank for real: “They’re adults, and know what’s right and wrong,” he added.
