The event was co-organised by the SKEMA Global Management Centre in China (SGMCC), the China Management Science Society (CMSS) and Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University.
This successful annual conference enabled a large number of companies, government representatives and international academics and researchers to discuss and share the latest trends and information in the management sciences and how they are applied in the context of China.
The two round table discussions of the China Management Forum 100 (Management: Facing the Challenge of AI / Management: Implementation Strategy of National Plan) and the three academic sessions (The Globalisation of Chinese Management; Evaluation of Chinese Management from the Perspective of Culture; Chinese Management and Innovation and Entrepreneurship) were based on the latest results of research in these areas. During these sessions, participants took a close look at new business models in China, internet applications in Chinese companies, managing entrepreneurship and innovation and the impact of the “one belt, one road” initiative on Chinese companies.
Guoyou Zhang, president of the CMSS, president of the China Management Science Society gave the opening speech.
This partnership with the China Management Science Society (CMSS) in organising this edition of the International Academic Conference in Chinese Management is an important step in SKEMA’s expansion in China, facilitated by the SKEMA Global Management Centre in China (SGMCC) which is the “strong arm” for the strategy of SKEMA’s Suzhou campus. The SKEMA Global Management Centre in China is directed by Professor Laubie Li (former academic dean of the SKEMA campus) and Ella Wang (administrator). Two of the Centre’s research assistants, Andy Xiong and Vivian Xu, also made a great contribution to the event’s success.
