Alumni Events, Volume 3, 2014

The son of CEIBS' first president Li Jiagao laid flowers at his father's statue

Around 230 CEIBS alumni who graduated between 1995 and 1999 returned to their alma mater May 9 and 10 for two days of celebratory reunion activities. The gathering was made all the more special because it coincides with CEIBS 20th anniversary.

One of the highlights was a visit to Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Minhang campus, where CEIBS first began offering programmes in Shanghai. CEIBS Executive President Zhu Xiaoming, Vice President and Co-Dean Zhang Weijiong and Baosteel Chair Professor of Economics at CEIBS Wu Jinglian led a group of 200 alumni there to meet with Jiang Sixian, Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Party Secretary. There was also a memorial service at CEIBS’ Shanghai Campus to commemorate the contributions of the school’s former presidents, Professor Li Jiagao and Professor Zhang Guohua. Vice President Zhang Weijiong hosted the service, which was attended by family members of the two past presidents along with President Zhu and Chairman of the CEIBS Education Foundation and Honorary President of CEIBS Liu Ji.

Alumni also enjoyed a series of lectures by CEIBS faculty and fellow alumni. President Zhu Xiaoming lectured on internet finance, Vice President Zhang Weijiong lectured on “Transformation, Upgrade, Innovation, Subversion”, Prof Wu Jinglian lectured on China’s economic transition and market reforms, and Associate Professor of Strategy Chen Weiru lectured on platform strategy and innovation. Alumnus Chen Hang (EMBA 1998), Managing Director of China Culture Industrial Investment Fund, lectured on investment opportunities in the culture industry. Partner at Morningside Ventures Liu Qin (MBA 1998), and Partner at IDG Capital Zhang Suyang (EMBA 1998) shared their years of experience in private equity and venture capital, and introduced other CEIBS alumni who are also active in the field. 

A donation ceremony was also held to accept an investment made by MBA 1999 alumni that will see Discussion Room 106 in Academic Centre 1 renamed for their class. During the ceremony alumnus Sun Wenyu presented a cheque to the school on behalf of the group. Dean and Vice President Professor Hellmut Schütte and Assistant President and Secretary General of the CEIBS Foundation Ge Jun also participated in events welcoming the alumni back to CEIBS.
