CEIBS Global EMBA Seminar and info-session in Beijing on April 26

CEIBS invites you to attend a Strategy Seminar by renowned speaker Jeffrey L. Sampler, Professor of Management at China Europe International Business School (CEIBS).

Developing Strategic "shock Absorbers" for Turbulent Times

In today's world most companies are facing almost unprecedented levels of change and turbulence in their operating environments. How can companies absorb these massive shocks and not only survive, but thrive? Professor Sampler reveals why the conventional tools of strategy are so badly out of sync with our needs. He uses case studies from Asia, India and the Middle East to illustrate principles of successful strategic planning for the 21st century. Executives will learn how to be prepared and proactive, rather than reactive, even when the future is uncertain. They will understand how to reorient their approach to absorb the shocks and surprises that strike at a moment's notice, allowing strategic planning to reliably play its part.

The seminar will be followed by an introduction of the CEIBS Global EMBA programme with CEIBS admissions staff and alumni from Global EMBA.
