CEIBS Europe 2018 Wrap-Up

December 13, 2018. Zurich – What a busy year it’s been for CEIBS alumni in Europe! Here’s a recap:

The first ever Chapter Head meeting, hosted at CEIBS Zurich campus in January, set the goalposts for the year ahead.

We had three chapter council re-elections with the UK, Spain and France all welcoming new leadership.

Professors Xu Bin, Oliver Rui, Zhang Yu, Jeff Sampler, Juan Fernandez and CEIBS Honorary President (European) Pedro Nueno were among the faculty who visited and hosted events for European chapters. They shared their insights on an array of hot topics such as the US-China trade dispute, singles day and Brexit.

The CEIBS 1+1 series was launched with President (European) Prof. Dipak Jain leading events in Munich, London and Paris.

We had numerous regional meet-ups including a Design Thinking Workshop led by the Germany chapter, a Chinese New Year banquet in London, the first CEIBS gathering in Amsterdam and dumpling making in Zurich.

Finally, in September, our largest ever CEIBS European Alumni Reunion took place in Berlin with over 100 alumni, faculty and friends of the school from across Europe and China coming together, united by a common bond: CEIBS.
