25th CEEMAN Annual Conference Events in China

Chengdu and Hangzhou, China
CEEMAN Annual Conference is the most important annual event of CEEMAN – the International Management Development Association for Dynamic Societies. In the past years, CEEMAN has been strengthening its links with China, and organizing CEEMAN Annual Conference for the first time in China is an important step to facilitate cooperation within One Belt One Road initiative.

To enable participants to learn about different contexts of China, the conference events will be organized in two important locations: the pre-conference workshop will take place in Chengdu while the 2017 CEEMAN Deans Annual Conference will be held in Hangzhou.

Pre-conference workshop in cooperation with ITTN China and Chengdu Government
Supporting Innovations through Management Education
18-19 September 2017 - Chengdu

2017 CEEMAN Deans Annual Conference in cooperation with School of Management, Zhejiang University
Rethinking Entrepreneurship: Challenges for Management Education
20-22 September 2017 – Hangzhou

The conference will provide an opportunity to discuss latest trends, key issues, opportunities and challenges in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovations, and sustainability and see how business/management education can better support these processes to foster more effective entrepreneurship development around the world.

CEEMAN Annual Conference Events traditionally include a series of events in order to get to know first the business, political and social realities of the host country (including through company visits, experiential workshops, keynote business panels), and then to discuss implications, best practices and collaboration in the area of management development (business education keynotes, international panels, roundtable discussions and workshops).

School of Management, Zhejiang University, is a leading academic institution in China and one of China’s first universities whose Executive MBA education was approved by the Chinese government in 2002. Their MBA Program was launched in 1994 and was accredited by Association of MBAs (AMBAs) in 2006 (as the first one in mainland China), in 2012 it was awarded with EQUIS accreditation and in 2015 with AACSB accreditation.
