Three generations of Chinese entrepreneurs have driven explosive growth since 1978, but what does the future hold? At this lecture, Dr. Xiang Bing 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 the world. By such sharing, Dr. Xiang Bing expects to help participants develop a clearer outlook for China as well as formulate better China strategies.
Dr. Xiang Bing is the Founding Dean and Professor of China Business and Globalization at Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB), which is China’s first privately-funded and faculty-governed business school with headquarters in Beijing, teaching sites in Shanghai and Shenzhen and representative offices in Hong Kong, London and New York.
