China’s Transformation and Its Impact on the Global Economy
2016-03-18  - Singapore

Three generations of Chinese entrepreneurs have driven explosive growth since 1978, but what does the future hold? This forum, organized by CKGSB with the theme of “China’s Transformation and Its Impact on the Global Economy”, will help participants develop a clearer outlook for 2016 and formulate better China strategies. In this special session, Dr. Xiang Bing, Founding Dean of CKGSB and Professor of China Business and Globalization, will discuss the new models and strategies that Chinese companies have adopted in the context of globalization. He will also offer an in-depth analysis of China’s paradigm-shifting new business models – their challenges and limitations, the prevailing myths and realities that characterize China, and the resulting implications for cross-cultural leadership.

After the event, there will be an opportunity to learn more about the exciting CKGSB-IMD Dual EMBA program and speak with Ms. Vivian Yao, Assistant Director of CKGSB Global Programs. CKGSB alumni will also share their insights and experiences.
