Another highlight of the event was when CEIBS Department Chair of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management Professor Juan A. Fernandez shared the findings of the most recent CEIBS Business in China Survey. He said they indicate that the main challenges for local and international companies doing business in China include: the slowdown of the Chinese economy, rising labour costs, finding and hiring suitable talent, generating commitment and loyalty, and unrealistic expectations of the post-90’s or millennial generation. Nevertheless, over 70 percent of the companies surveyed had a positive outlook the future potential for higher sales and profits in China.

Professors Zhang Weijiong and Chen Shimin each gave a brief speech at the opening of the event.

The CEIBS Career Development Centre (CDC) aims to enhance students’ overall career development capabilities and to provide a platform for them to realise their career goals. The MBA 2013 students who graduated earlier this year benefited greatly from the support of the CDC: 195 graduates from 21 countries and regions developed knowledge and skills through the Career Development Programme (CDP), internships, Integrated Strategic Projects (ISP), Responsible Leadership Projects (RLP), and business simulations during the 18-month study at CEIBS. Their job placement rate three months after graduation was 90.1%, while average salaries reached RMB473K and 83.5% of graduates successfully made a career switch.

We greatly appreciate the partnership we have with our recruiters. Those interested in learning more about recruitment opportunities with CEIBS can contact us at cdc@ceibs.edu or +86 21 2890 5142.
