What comes to mind when you hear the words Artificial Intelligence (AI)? Are you one of those people worried robots will not just replace you on the job but may also end up ruling the human race? Or do you see them as potential helpmates working alongside humans for increased efficiency? Maybe you’re looking ahead for business opportunities in a world where AI is par for the course? 

In our Cover Story, we tap CEIBS’ extensive knowledge base to look at what it’s like to live with AI. The robots are already here. Now it’s up to you to decide how you will engage with them.

This issue also contains a Special Feature section on five impressive alumni from the CEIBS Global EMBA programme. Representing different industries, different countries and cultures they all have one thing in common – a great story to tell.

There are more fascinating alumni stories throughout the magazine: venture capitalist Wang Xiao is the focus of Entrepreneurial Spirit, and in Alumni Chapter Sharing we bring you highlights from the annual alumni association work conference in Nanjing. 

We haven’t forgotten to include our academics, with Features on long-time faculty member Professor Chen Shimin and relative newcomer Professor Wang Cong. In CEIBS Knowledge, we also bring you excerpts from the most recent CEIBS Doing Business in China Survey. Meanwhile, as we continue to focus on ALL the school’s locations across the globe, we introduce you to some of the staff from our Zurich and Accra campuses in the CEIBS in 5 section of the magazine. 

We hope this issue of TheLINK gives you a clearer idea of what it means to be a part of the CEIBS community, on and off campus, across five locations in three continents, where real people learn with and from each other – and have fun doing it!

We look forward to your feedback, along with story ideas for future issues. Just drop us a line at alumnimagazine@ceibs.edu
