Successful CEIBS Board of Directors Meeting 2018

November 16, 2018. Shanghai – The CEIBS Board of Directors today held its Annual Meeting at the School’s Shanghai Campus. The meeting was chaired by Board Chairman Professor Lin Zhongqin, who is Academician of China Academy of Engineering and President of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and Vice Chairman Gerard van Schaik, Honorary Chairman of EFMD.

During the meeting, CEIBS’ Presidents and Deans briefed the Board, covering both broader aspects – such as reflections on overall issues, CEIBS’ priorities in building its competitive advantage – and more concrete issues such as faculty and research, “Internationalization 2.0”, the school’s financial status and Budget Plan 2019. The Board approved all reports and plans submitted by the school and unanimously agreed that the independence and autonomy of CEIBS should be insisted upon. The Board had high praise for CEIBS’ progress in 2018 and the work of the Management Committee, especially its teamwork and entrepreneurial spirit, as well as the strategic vision displayed in the reports submitted. The Board also made a number of comments and suggestions, such as using the occasion of CEIBS’ 25th anniversary to strengthen ties within high levels of both the Chinese and EU governments, creating synergy with local communities for societal significance, enhancing the school’s European dimension, continuing innovation with digital education and internationalization, etc.
