SKEMA joins Chamber of Commerce France-China gala dinner, Shanghai

Published on 09 June 2021

May 28, as a long-term partner, and the only academic institution this year, SKEMA Business School attended the Shanghai gala dinner organised by the Chamber of Commerce France-China along with 850 guests. 

Aiming to gather and promote French companies in China, Chamber of Commerce France-China hold the annual gala dinner to honour members that have implemented impactful projects, especially those whose business fits the gala’s theme: innovating for a better world.

“As a global business school with its roots in France, this year's gala theme fits SKEMA’s DNA perfectly. SKEMA in China is particularly active in developing relationships with local and international business communities, including Chamber of Commerce France-China, our historical partner”, said Matthieu Dumont, SKEMA China campus director. “Our close cooperation is especially favourable to leverage key talents and expertise for the benefit of companies. So SKEMA has  an important position in providing high-quality and innovative students and executives for the job market”.

Jen Gu, one of the SKEMA two-year MSc students in Sustainable Finance and Fintech, took part in the lucky draw organised by the school on Chinese social media, and successfully attended the gala dinner as a SKEMA student representative. 

After the gala dinner, she even published a vlog to share her unique experience on such an important occasion and to give some practical tips: “Dare to be the icebreaker. A smile, a quick self-introduction or a business topic are good to kick off communication”. 

Christophe Lauras, Chamber of Commerce France-China president, Benoît Guidée, consul general of France in Shanghai, Dr Jonathan Koon-Sum Choi, president of GBA Entrepreneurs Union, Jean-Marc Fenet, minister counsellor for economic affairs at the French Embassy in China, Thibaut Fabre, Business France China director, Caroline Penard, CCI France-China general manager, Matthieu Dumont, SKEMA China campus director and other executives were also in attendance.
