CEIBS’ Impact within the Regional Ecosystem

Established in Shanghai, CEIBS has been fully intertwined with the metropolis’ development of becoming an international center of economy, finance, trade, shipping, and scientific &technologic innovation. During the past 25 years, CEIBS ensures a steady supply of the city’s most-needed high-caliber talents in the modern service industry who are able to adapt to international competition and cooperation. Among 240,000+ students graduated from CEIBS, some of them are leading industry transformation, some of them are unicorn start-ups leaders, and most of them become strong pillars in all sorts of enterprises.

In addition to harness talents’ creativity and intelligence, CEIBS also collaborates with local companies at various fronts, including provide business education at all levels from Chairman and C-suite executives to middle managers, assist these companies in scaling up and enhance their access to the global market.

Winner Technology, a global premium offline business data products and service provider, can best illustrate it. Since its establishment in 2004, the company has started to research and develop AI applications based on offline brick-and-mortar business scenarios. Mr. Zhang Hongjun – the Founder, Chairman and CEO – graduated from CEIBS in 2013. Ever since then, there have been eight of its senior executives and managers who are from CEIBS alumni, including current President, Mr. Ding Yao.  In 2019, Winner Technology was awarded Teaching Base of CEIBS and a case has been developed regarding the company’s fast growth. During last year, a total of 5 groups of students have visited Winner Technology which is located within a 5-minute-driving perimeter of CEIBS. Highly-impressed by the company’s advanced technology and premium services, one Spanish participant from a visiting group has signed the contract with Winner Technology shortly after.

This is one of the ample examples of CEIBS on assisting the effective flow of ideas, talent, and capital throughout the ecosystem of the Shanghai region. By and large, once the institutional environment triggering innovation vigor has been created, vitality and impetus towards innovation and entrepreneurship across the society are also thriving. And CEIBS plays a vital role more than a learning and communication platform, but a driving force which creates and captures new value in a dynamic, co-evolving community.

About BSIS

The Business School Impact System (BSIS) scheme is designed to determine the extent of a school’s impact upon its local environment – the city or region in which it is located. The BSIS process is offered in a joint venture between EFMD Global Network and FNEGE as a service to EFMD members in any part of the world. The impact of the Business School is analysed on the basis of the following seven areas of impact: financial, educational, business development impact as well as intellectual, societal, image and impact within the regional ecosystem.
