There’s a LOT in this issue!
Our Cover Story brings you fascinating and inspirational stories from interviews with 16 students from the MBA Class of 2018. They made us wish we were joining them for their 18 months of study! We happily share with you their pre-MBA stories of entrepreneurial ventures, gains made by strong female leaders, Chinese students’ globe-trotting adventures and international students’ China expertise.
Our faculty are well represented with a Feature on the refreshingly down-to-earth Prof Hyun Young Park, and a CEIBS Knowledge piece in which Prof Xu Bin shares his very frank views on the debt-equity swap – the Chinese government’s plan to tackle the problem of mounting debt.
In Entrepreneurial Spirit we sat down for a chat with renowned architect and CEIBS alumnus Zhao Xiaojun who went from designing the Water Cube for the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics to a more Zen-like approach to his craft. There is also a feature on a valued CEIBS Corporate Sponsor, Li Xin, whose tenacity and drive for meeting clients’ needs opened up a whole new niche in China’s legal sector.
And of course there’s a lot more on these pages: updates on how our impressive alumni are shaping the world of business as well as a round-up of events across our three campuses and five locations. We’re looking forward to sharing your stories in the months ahead. So be sure to give us your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org and keep your suggestions coming about what you’d like to see in the next issue!
