2019 EFMD Conference for Deans & Directors General

For the first time in its 46-year history, the EFMD Conference for Deans & Directors General will be held outside of Europe and we are delighted to announce that CEIBS - China Europe International Business School - has been chosen as the host school as it also celebrates another milestone year and turns 25!

The success of CEIBS over the past 25 years as well as the growth and standing of Shanghai as an international city of business was a key reason for choosing to host the conference here. Top business leaders will share their stories and understanding of where China and Asia are today and discuss the future in relation to business, management, and higher education.

We hope you will take this opportunity to join us in Shanghai on January 21 & 22, 2019 for our Enterprising Deans in a Global Context conference.
