2015 China Entrepreneurial Leadership Camp

Please click the following link to download the application form of Entrepreneurial Leadership Camp, fill it in and send to CCEI@ceibs.edu

Programme Overview
We live in an era of entrepreneurship. Generation after generation, we have been encouraged by the spirit and success stories of entrepreneurs. 

The most powerful engine of a new venture is its founders – and their ability to learn and grow. Once founders stop learning, developing, and feeling exited about their venture, their mindset and behaviour stagnate and become barriers for the company's future development.    

Cognizant of the potential for outstanding entrepreneurs to create value for society, CEIBS, mainland China’s leading business school, has launched a new programme – China Entrepreneurial Leadership Camp.
Experience has shown that entrepreneurs can benefit from training to enrich their knowledge and broaden their horizons. Our goal is to identify 42 entrepreneurs with growth potential in China and bring them together to create a platform for learning and sharing. We want to provide them with the latest research-based insights, and help them network with other accomplished entrepreneurs as well as with investors and industry leaders in an intense and stimulating environment.
We are looking forward to having you – future entrepreneurial leaders with great potential – join us!

Program Features
Six cross-regional modules instruction
Teaching style combining learning and action
CEIBS and industry leaders will join their efforts to give instructions, both by theory and in practice. Spotlight case method which simulates real business decisions is adopted in the program. After finishing five basic modules, the students will attend entrepreneurship and innovation competition. The winner will be awarded a Jeep sponsored by Chrysler China. Six modules will take place in Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen which are the very center of entrepreneurship and innovation in China.

Community Form
We have turned the traditionalteaching style of one-way instruction into a mutual improvement process among multi-parities throughwell-designed mechanism, letting every member of our community actively share with and promote each other. Under such circumstance, every studentnot only has a strong sense of participation, but also a willingness to help others. The fast update of knowledge always enables CELC to be in touch with the latest and the most useful information to keep the entire community move in pace with the times.

China-US cross-national study
The fifth module will allow students to go to Silicon Valley in US to learn entrepreneurship. This module is cooperated with Stanford Business School. The students will have a chance to listen to entrepreneurship courses delivered by Stanford first-class professors. And they can learn and observe product innovation, technology innovation, business model innovation and talent management innovation from high-tech innovative enterprises in Silicon Valley (Cisco, HP, Google, Apple, Facebook, etc.)

Private Board
Private boards are study groups of seven or eight students composed for mutual-help study. Students are scheduled to pay a two-day visit to their own enterprises to diagnose problems and share experiences with each other.

Spotlight case
CEIBS organizes professors and research team for field trips of excellent students’ enterprises. They will draft short cases based on students’ interviews. Such cases are called Spotlight Cases, provided either for group discussion among students, or for internal training of students’ enterprise. Once authorized by students, these cases will have the chance to be included into CEIBS case database.
Spotlight cases enable students to directly discuss entrepreneurial problems and to observe and analyze the thinking and decision-making of entrepreneurs.

Group Wisdom
Many-to-one private boards enable the students to have direct and unique suggestions from fellows and enjoy the sharing of industry experiences.
