The Nigeria arm of the Alumni Association of the China Europe International Business School, CEIBS has said it remains committed to deepening Nigeria’s bilateral relations with emerging Asia economies.
The group also said it is poised to extending opportunities to more Africans as well as creating a blueprint for the rising Asia-Africa relations.
These were the highlights of their Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Induction ceremony which held in Lagos over the weekend.
The CEIBS Africa project was launched in 2008 with a mission to prepare highly competent innovation oriented managers and executives who are capable of leading and growing their organisations in the increasingly dynamic African economic environment.
These are leaders who can negotiate the forces of globalisation and international competition for the benefit of their organizations.
In a statement released by the Alumi after the AGM, they said; “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 AGM and induction ceremony was organized by the CEIBS Nigeria chapter led by President, Mr Adebayo Sunday Agboola, Hector Okposo, FCA, VP and Tega Tonukari, General Secretary.
During the event, Professor Mathew Tsamenyi, Executive Director, CEIBS Africa spoke about some of the new partnerships CEIBS had entered for the growth and development of businesses and economies in Africa as well as some of the strategic changes in its Global Executive MBA and Women Entrepreneurship & Leadership for Africa Programme
