China-EU Co-operation Highlighted at CEIBS 25th Anniversary

November 15, 2019. Shanghai – Nicolas Chapuis, Ambassador and Head of Delegation of the European Union to China, visited CEIBS today on occasion of the school’s 25th anniversary to congratulate the school on its achievements over the past quarter century.

In his address, Ambassador Chapuis said that, in 1994, the Chinese government and the EU made a forward-looking decision to establish a world-class business school in Shanghai and that, following 25 years of hard work, this goal has gradually become a reality. He also noted that CEIBS has not only made significant contributions to China’s economic development, but also built a high-end platform for international exchange, allowing foreign students to come to China to learn about China, and allowing Chinese students to go abroad to better understand the world. He concluded, China and the EU must continue to work together to strengthen mutual trust, adhere to mutually beneficial co-operation and achieve common prosperity.

Co-founded by the Chinese government and European Union (EU) in 1994, CEIBS is China’s only business school to originate from government-level collaboration. Its MBA and Global EMBA programmes both featured amongst the top 5 in the most recent Financial Times’ global rankings.
