September 10, 2014. Shanghai – MBA 1997 alumni have together invested RMB 600,000 to establish the Li Jiahao Fund in honour of CEIBS’ first president. The fund will be used to provide scholarships for MBA students and support academic research by CEIBS faculty. Professor Li was a pioneer in developing international education and management training in China. He devoted the last six years of his life to building CEIBS, even after being diagnosed with cancer. Though he passed away in May 1998, his vision, wisdom and integrity continue to flourish at CEIBS. In honour of his many great contributions to the development of the school, the title “Excellent Person Contributing to CEIBS” was conferred on him and a bronze statue of him has been erected on the CEIBS Shanghai Campus.
