August 10, 2015. Shanghai – Students enrolling at their parents’ alma mater, a 32% international class with first timers from Jamaica, Nepal and Kenya, plus a historic number of students with entrepreneurial backgrounds. Meet the CEIBS MBA Class of 2017!

They were officially welcomed aboard today: 195 students from 27 countries. Among them were seven whose parents are CEIBS alumni; and 20 who already have start-ups under their belts.

Highlights from the event:
CEIBS President Li Mingjun, along with Dean and Vice President Ding Yuan shared the secret of the school’s success over the past two decades and encouraged each new student to “leave your mark and redefine who you are”.

China, they noted, is significantly altering global power – something that is unprecedented in history. Everyone, they added, should be prepared to embrace the changes of this great age. They encouraged students to be brave, and to try and keep an open mind for the changes ahead.
