CEIBS Launches Case Master Development Camp

In an effort to raise the quantity and quality of China-focused case studies and elevate the level of business education in China through use of the Case Method, the CEIBS Case Center has created the CEIBS Case Master Development Camp together with ChinaCases.org and the Shanghai MBA Case Development and Sharing Platform. Formerly known as the Case Method Workshop, the Camp gives participants a first-hand experience of the case teaching and case learning process and a deeper understanding of the case teaching method through step-by-step analyses of case studies with CEIBS faculty. Two Camps were held in November and December 2016 at the Shanghai Campus, the first conducted in English and the second in Chinese, for faculty at business schools in China and abroad.

Zurich Campus Hosts Swiss-Chinese Chamber’s Advisory Board Meeting

CEIBS Vice President and Dean Professor Ding Yuan gave the keynote address at the Advisory Board Meeting of the Swiss-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) which was held on January 25 at the school’s Zurich Campus. Discussions at the meeting provided invaluable insights from Chinese President Xi Jinping’s state visit to Switzerland and the recently concluded World Economic Forum in Davos.

CEIBS has been deepening its ties with and within the Swiss business community since the October 2015 acquisition of the Lorange Institute of Business, Zurich, which has now been fully integrated into CEIBS’ wider operations under the name Zurich Institute of Business Education (ZIBE). Dean Ding is a member of the advisory board of the SCCC, whose ranks include representatives from all the major business organisations in Switzerland. ZIBE CEO Philipp Boksberger is a member of the SCCC’s management board.

CEIBS’ deepening relationships in Switzerland reflect the increasingly strong Sino-Swiss ties seen at the national level. For example, last April CEIBS’ Shanghai Campus was the final stop for Swiss President Johann N Schneider-Ammann on his three-day official state visit to China. He gave a keynote speech at the CEIBS-hosted Sino-Swiss Innovation Forum that was followed by a networking session for business executives from both countries. President Xi Jinping’s first overseas trip for 2017 was to Switzerland, a move widely interpreted as an indicator of the importance the Chinese government places on its relationship with Switzerland.
