A1 Business school Impact
Finance is not the only indicator to measure success. How to do more, create a conducive learning environment, share and care, going beyond the classroom. Demonstrate the larger goals as you create globally oriented graduates and innovative research. Communicate better with governments and other international organisations about value creation. The BSIS paradigm shift

  • Ding Yuan, Dean, CEIBS, China

A2 Internationalisation – is it simple?
Three dimensions to be globally relevant vis-à-vis all stakeholders and contours of management education. The art of internationalisation as the experts unravel their tool kits.

How does a school aspire to be an international player without forgetting the local impact?
