How to Support

Chair Endowment Fund
-attracting world-class faculty to CEIBS

CEIBS Chair Endowment is the most prestigious and involved form of collaboration between the school and a Sponsor Partner. By choosing to endow a Chair, our Partners work closely with the school to influence the future development of CEIBS' expertise in an area relevant to multinational businesses with activities in China.

In 2005, together with input from our Corporate Advisory Board, CEIBS defined Chairs to be funded in the following priority areas:

  •  Technology and Manufacturing 
  •  Banking & Financial Services 
  •  Innovation and R&D Management 
  •  Intellectual Property Rights
  •  Corporate Social Responsibility

As a sponsor of an Endowed Chair, CEIBS Partners provide funding and active guidance in attracting and defining the profile of the Chair Professor; the direction of the research; the creation of executive education programs; and the establishment of additional electives on our MBA and EMBA programmes. Other possible activities include conferences, symposia, knowledge exchange missions, and the development of case studies.

CEIBS Chair Endowment Fund contribution starts from Euro 1 million. Our Chair Sponsor Partners receive all Sponsor benefits over a 10-year period.
