- China-Europe Business School to Deepen Asia-Nigeria Bilateral Ties
The Nigerian arm of the alumni association of the China-Europe International Business School has said it remains committed to deepening bilateral relations with emerging Asian economies.
According to the group, it is poised to extend opportunities to more Africans and create a blueprint for the rising Asia-Africa relations.
These were the highlights of the association’s Annual General Meeting and induction ceremony, which held in Lagos recently.
The CEIBS Africa project was launched in 2008, with a mission to strategically prepare innovation-oriented managers and executives, who are capable of leading and growing their organisations in the increasingly dynamic African economic environment.
A statement from the alumni association read in part, “These leaders can negotiate the forces of globalisation and international competition for the benefit of their organisations.
“China in the past decade has experienced tremendous growth with a rapid rise of the middle class and tremendous developments in technology and infrastructure.
“Many emerging economies are looking to growth in China and part of Europe as models for developing their economies, and CEIBS with its in-depth knowledge of China, extensive global reach, and world class faculty is well positioned to equip the business and political leaders that will help create this.”
The Executive Director, CEIBS Africa, Matthew Tsamenyi, said the school had entered into new partnerships for the growth and development of businesses and economies in Africa.
“This has translated to strategic changes in its Global Executive MBA and Women Entrepreneurship and Leadership for Africa programmes,” he added.
The President, CEIBS Nigeria Alumni Chapter, Mr. Sunday Agboola, said, “Today marks the first of many great steps that the alumni association will embark on towards greatness. Together, we are entering another phase and taking the necessary steps towards building a CEIBS in Nigeria that is both progressive with fresh ideas and initiatives, as well as responsive to the changing global climate.
“I enjoin us to remain even more committed to our body as we create an enduring legacy to define the status and standard of the CEIBS in Nigeria and all over the world.”
