CEIBS – China Europe International Business School renews BSIS label


We are pleased to announce that CEIBS – China Europe International Business School has renewed the Business School Impact System (BSIS) assessment process and received the BSIS label again. Warm congratulations to the school!

“CEIBS has decided for this BSIS renewal not to cover all the 7 impact fields, but to focus the report and renewal process on the intellectual impact, societal and the image impact. In conclusion, in terms of Image impact, we can state that CEIBS has a very strong positive impact on its first circle of the impact zone (Pudong and Shanghai City). The managerial impact of the research including through cases studies has to be underlined. The alumni community has an important role to play to activate the ‘soft power‘ represented by CEIBS to amplify the image impact on the region and to attract more executive students and future investors,” comments Michel Kalika, Director, BSIS.

CEIBS – China Europe International Business School

CEIBS is a not-for-profit organisation, co-founded as a joint-venture for management education in 1994 by the Chinese government and the European Union with Shanghai Jiao Tong University and EFMD serving as executive partners. CEIBS is the only business school to originate from government-level cooperation in China. CEIBS has campuses in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Accra in Ghana and Zurich.

“By going through the BSIS process, now for a second time, CEIBS has been able not only to better document the school’s contributions to our community, but also, under the guidance of BSIS experts, to find gaps between internal perceptions and external expectations, and between actual and feasible contributions, and thus to identify potential ways to enhance the relationship between CEIBS and its stakeholders. This assessment will provide value fuel for our current and future strategic plans,” says Prof. Ding Yuan, CEIBS Vice President and Dean.

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 and FNEGE as a service to EFMD members in any part of the world. The impact of the business school is analysed based on the following seven areas of impact: financial, educational, business development impact as well as intellectual, societal, image and impact within the regional ecosystem.

There are currently 59 schools across 19 countries that have received the BSIS label.

To learn more about the impact assessment system, please visit the BSIS website or contact bsis@efmdglobal.org.
