China E20 Alliance for executive education established by business schools
14 universities led by Renmin University of China Business School have come together to establish the China E20 Alliance for executive education.
The alliance, known as the China E20 Alliance or The Executive Education of China Elite Alliance, held its inaugural meeting in Hefei City this month, and is said to have gathered directors from the country’s “Double First-Class” University’s management, business, and finance schools.
The initiative will aid development of executive education in China
A statement from Renmin University shared that the China E20 Alliance was founded by 14 leading universities to promote the development and integration of the country’s executive education industry, share best practices, drive innovation and enhance the value of organisations and people.
The alliance will seek to assist Chinese entrepreneurs in their growth and evolution, and create “a new era” for executive education in China.
Commenting on the development, Zou Yufeng, the newly-elected Chairman of China E20 Alliance, said: “As an executive education exchange platform for the Double First-Class schools, the China E20 Alliance seeks to cultivate a new generation of entrepreneurs.
“As the first leading business school to offer management education, Renmin University of China Business School’s objective is to enhance Chinese management and cultivate global leaders, to bring in a new generation of Chinese entrepreneurs and enterprises.”
First China E20 Alliance Summit to be held in 2021
The collective disclosed its plans to host the first-ever China E20 Alliance summit around the first half of 2021.
The summit, which will be led by the China Europe International Business School, will open up extensive cooperation and sharing through projects, campus visits, and more.
As China’s economy grows, the notion of “dual circulation” development or the concurrent development of the national and international markets has emerged.
In this environment, the China E20 Alliance’s core values of opening up, cooperation, win-win scenarios, and knowledge with action, will assist the country’s call for a new phase in development strategy, the school stated.
