CEIBS 20th anniversary forum explored “Two generations, One dialogue ”. The venue was the Beijing Campus.

When CEIBS officially marks its 20th birthday on November 8, 2014, it will be the culmination of a year of special events that have brought together alumni, students, leading business executives, scholars, and artists for a vital exchange of ideas that embody the school’s mission of “China Depth, Global Breadth” while also highlighting China’s extraordinary achievements of the past two decades.   

Special anniversary Master Classes have brought the founders and CEOs of many of China’s largest companies to the school’s Shanghai and Beijing Campuses this year for lively discussions on the hot business issues of the day, such as innovation, globalisation, talent development, foreign investment and social responsibility.

There were also many anniversary activities that highlighted the importance of art and culture, an integral part of CEIBS’ history and development over the years. Both the Shanghai and Beijing Campuses hosted exhibitions of renowned artists’ works, and the school also held several anniversary-related competitions that enabled students and alumni to show the entire CEIBS family their talents in photography, the performing arts and video production. Read on for highlights of CEIBS 20th Anniversary events.
