CEIBS Faculty for Summer Davos

June 20, 2017. Shanghai – Three CEIBS faculty will be among global thought leaders at this year’s World Economic Forum (WEF) in Dalian from June 27-29. CEIBS Vice President & Dean Ding Yuan will be joined by Assistant Professor of Marketing Chen Lin and Associate Professor of Management Han Jian. Informally dubbed Summer Davos, the event will explore the overall topic of “Achieving Inclusive Growth in the Fourth Industrial Revolution”. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is among those expected to attend.

CEIBS faculty are frequent participants at WEF events in Switzerland and China. At the Dalian event, Dean Ding will participate in a session on “New Roads to Globalization” and moderate another on “Rethinking Economics with Big Data”. He will draw on his wealth of experience as Dean of an international business school with campuses across three continents and alumni in more than 80 countries. Dean Ding, who led CEIBS’ 2015 acquisition of a Zurich based business school, has also amassed years of experience in working with CEIBS alumni companies going global and MNCs doing business in China. His areas of expertise include M&As and IPOs as well as corporate governance.

Professor Lin will moderate and participate in discussions on “China in Depth: Digital Transformation”, "New Governance Platforms for the 4th Industrial Revolution”, and “Rethinking Business Growth”. Over the past two years since joining the CEIBS faculty she has earned a solid reputation for her extensive knowledge on issues related to China’s vibrant digital/social/e-commerce sectors. She has written extensively on the country’s big three ecommerce giants – Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent –Mobike and other apps in the sharing economy as well as social media as a marketing tool.

Professor Han will be among the speakers in a session on “New Material Economy” where she will discuss macro employment trends and strategic talent management. She will also moderate an interactive session on “China’s role in the 4th Industrial Revolution”. Professor Han is Co-Director of CEIBS Centre on China Innovation and has expertise in business strategy, talent management, and innovation management.

All three professors are available for media interviews at Summer Davos.
