Alumni Association Holds Annual Meeting

Volume 2, 2014

Around 150 representatives from CEIBS alumni chapters and clubs in China and abroad gathered in Shenzhen March 22 for the Annual Alumni Association Meeting. The event was an opportunity for alumni leaders to hear from school officials about CEIBS’ progress and achievements over the past year, and exchange ideas for improving organisation and outreach to encourage further alumni involvement.

An update on the opening of Shanghai Campus Phase 3, the recent launch of the CEIBS-World Bank (China) Centre for Inclusive Finance and the establishment of the Shanghai MBA Case Development and Sharing Platform were among the highlights of the presentation given by CEIBS Vice President and Co-Dean Prof Zhang Weijiong. 

Director of CEIBS Alumni Relations Mr Wang Qingjiang shared details about some of the 459 events held worldwide by CEIBS Alumni Association chapters and branch organisations in 2013, which attracted a total audience of 34,000. Over the past year, he said, four new alumni chapters and four new industry branches were established, and 20 alumni organisations elected new boards. He also gave an update on the iAlumni platform which makes it more convenient for alumni to stay connected with each other and CEIBS.

A preview of the various activities planned this year to celebrate CEIBS 20th anniversary was the focus of the presentation by Mr Allan Du, Vice Director of the 20th Anniversary Preparatory Office. These include a series of Master Classes (which began on March 7), along with a CEIBS History Exhibition, CEIBS Scholastic Works Exhibition, “Dream of Water” CEIBS Alumni Photography Exhibition, publication of a Collectors’ Edition of the works of CEIBS professors,  and a Global Management Forum, Reception Dinner and Gala Celebration all of which are planned for later in the year. There are also plans underway to elect the Top 20 Outstanding Alumni from CEIBS’ 20 Years. Anniversary celebration events are all aimed at showcasing CEIBS’ outstanding achievements over the past two decades, and inspire the CEIBS community to participate in the continued development of the school.
