September 7, 2017. Shanghai – Today’s Opening Ceremony for the CEIBS-Jinqiao Digital and Smart Learning Centre, located on the school’s Shanghai Campus, was a decisive step forward in the school’s digitalisation.

The long-standing and mutually beneficial ties between CEIBS and Jinqiao – the community in which the school is located – were highlighted by CEIBS Vice President and Co-Dean Professor Zhang Weijiong. The Digital and Smart Learning Centre, he said, is “not just another significant milestone, but also a new beginning”. He noted, “The Centre will support the development and innovation of CEIBS’ teaching methodology and will play an exemplary role in inspiring and boosting the transformation and upgrading of companies located in the Jinqiao Economic & Technological Development Zone.”

A practitioner of digital learning, former CEIBS President Professor Zhu Xiaoming has long been engaged in driving CEIBS’ digitalisation and transformation into a ‘smart’ organisation that seamlessly engages high tech in its operations. During the traditional plaque-unveiling ceremony, he showcased some of CEIBS’ best digitised practices, such as a 3D model used in healthcare classes to explain the concept of medical precision, teaching cases based on interactive technology and a CEIBS campus tour video made with VR technology.

CEIBS was also represented at the launch by Associate Dean (Executive Education) Professor Wang Gao, and Associate Dean & MBA Programme Director Professor Juan A. Fernandez – not surprising since the centre will undoubtedly impact what goes on in the school’s classrooms. They were joined by government officials including: Deputy Director of China (Shanghai) Free Trade Zone Jinqiao Administration Bureau and Director of Shanghai Jinqiao Economic & Technological Development Zone Administrative Committee Shen Neng, along with Yin Hong and Gu Xiaofeng who are both Deputy Directors of China (Shanghai) Free Trade Zone Jinqiao Administration Bureau and Deputy Directors of Shanghai Jinqiao Economic & Technological Development Zone Administrative Committee.
