We cordially invite you to attend our Master Class on Frameworks for Building and Sustaining Competitive Advantage in Suzhou on December 10, 2019.

In an economic environment that has entered the ‘hyper-competition’ stage, CEIBS President (European) Prof. Dipak Jain will present a framework for how companies can compete effectively in today’s market in the face of:

  • Intense competition coming from multiple sources;  
  • Boundaries of competition becoming more blurred;
  • Technological breakthroughs appearing at rapid speed;  
  • Demographic shifts creating profound impact;
  • Social media changing market landscapes.

Using case-studies from major global players and examining various industries such as automotive, pharmaceuticals, aviation, and global logistics, Professor Jain will explore how companies can create value for their customers and, crucially, how they can capture that value to ensure their sustainable competitive advantage.
