CEIBS 1st from Mainland China to Join AMRC

January 8, 2018 – CEIBS has accepted an invitation to join the Asian Management Research Consortium (AMRC), becoming the first business school from Mainland China to be included in the prestigious academic group. According to the AMRC, the invitation was extended to CEIBS because of its reputation as a leading business school in China. It is also seen as recognition of CEIBS’ strength as an academic leader among Chinese b-schools.

Launched in 2015, the AMRC focuses on promoting networking and research collaboration – in the area of management – among Asia’s top business schools.

It does this through annual conferences that typically include a half-day doctoral consortium where the emphasis is on strengthening members’ research output. For example, at this year’s invitation-only conference, which will be held in Seoul on April 27-28, the focus will be on providing useful feedback on research already in progress.

Membership in the AMRC is in line with CEIBS’ focus on academic research which has seen – for two years in a row – the school’s faculty top Elsevier’s ‘most cited Chinese scholars’ list in the categories of Business, Management and Accounting. In fact CEIBS faculty make up a third of the total number of selected scholars on the list. CEIBS faculty are also encouraged to engage with scholars from in and outside of China with each department required to host an annual academic symposium. For example the Organisational Behaviour & Human Resource Management Symposium held last November was attended by more than 100 professors, doctoral students, and practitioners from around the world. Meanwhile, the school regularly welcomes Visiting Thought Leaders from the world of academia or business to participate in lectures and/or engage with faculty, students and alumni. 
“As a member of the AMRC, CEIBS will have an even greater opportunity to share our expertise with our peers in Asia and, at the same time, learn from them as well,” said Professor Sam Park, who is Department Chair of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at CEIBS. Prof. Park, along with Flora Chiang from the Organisational Behaviour Department, will represent CEIBS at the AMRC. “We look forward to this opportunity to work even more closely with academics from other top Asian business schools,” he added.  

Other AMRC members include: INSEAD Singapore, ESSEC Singapore, National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore Management University (SMU), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST), Indian School of Business (ISB), Seoul National University (SNU), and Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST).
