Message from Dean

As I reflect on our path, ZIBS has always been about more than just education: it is about creating a community of global leaders who are ready to make a difference in the world. I am someone who loves to dream. Today, with all of you, I have also conceived a new dream: firstly, when I meet top international business schools, I won't need to introduce Zhejiang University or ZIBS, nor rely on different certifications and labels to prove ZIBS worth; secondly, when I meet global leading companies, they will not feel unfamiliar just because we come from academia, and as outstanding Zhejiang businessmen go global, ZIBS can provide effective support to better serve them; thirdly, when you talk about ZIBS with your family, partner, children, or friends, I hope that they also feel proud of you as a member of ZIBS.

Our world is not limited to a city or a region; ZIBS is a global business school that should have its eyes on the global stage. Let the world be the world of ZIBS!
