What is Masterclass?
The CEIBS Masterclass series features talks by CEIBS faculty at locations around the world. The audience for these invitation-only lectures includes alumni and friends of CEIBS. Participants have the opportunity to meet with our faculty, admissions team, and local alumni. Furthermore, by attending the lecture, participants can deepen their understanding of CEIBS’ China-focused content. The Masterclass series is aimed at strengthening our connection with our international community and engaging our alumni post-graduation and beyond.
About the lecture
Tensions between China and US have continued to escalate. The US government has added more specific sanctions against China. However, the trading volume between the two countries has increased more than before. At the same time, the US government began to use the term of ‘de-risking’ rather than ‘decoupling’. What have the economic costs incurred due to tensions between these countries been so far? Which countries are paying these costs? And what are the implications for global companies?
