CEIBS MBA Students Win Bid to Host GBC 2015 - Registration Begins Soon!

CEIBS MBA Students Win Bid to Host GBC 2015


January 15, 2015. Shanghai – A 35-member team of CEIBS MBA 2016 students will organise and host this year’s Graduate Business Conference (GBC) at the school’s Shanghai Campus from May 21-24. Their team successfully bid for the opportunity to host the event with a well-thought out proposal that pulled together everything from apps that will provide translation services, to shuttle buses from the nearby hotel to the venue in case of rain.

Held every spring, the GBC is a rite of passage for student leaders from well-known business schools. They gather together for workshops, to be inspired by speakers from the business world and government, all while networking with each other as they soak up the culture of the city in which the event is being held.

“We’re excited to be hosting GBC 2015,” said Alexander Kern, Project Director of the CEIBS MBA 2016 team. “We felt we had a good chance to win the bid because we covered all the bases in our proposal. The event will be at our amazing, ultra-modern campus in Shanghai, China’s economic capital. We have a strong team of students working on this and we will receive support, where needed, from the various departments within the school that have years of experience hosting large-scale events.  It’s going to be a lot of work but we’re really looking forward to seeing it all come together.”

The theme to be explored during GBC 2015 is “The New Normal: China and the World”.  Registration will open soon. Updates will be provided at http://www.graduatebusinessforum.com/
