AMBA at The 6th International Business School Shanghai Conference (IBSSC)

AMBA Chief Executive Andrew Main Wilson confirms attendance at The 6th International Business School Shanghai Conference (IBSSC).

Hosted by Antai College of Economics and Management (ACEM), Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the conference will focus on the theme of 'Technology and Management', and will examine the interaction between the development of technology and management education. More than 50 deans and directors from top Business Schools, as well as leaders from international business education accreditation institutions will be in attendance.

‘AMBA is the world’s only accreditation body for post graduate management programmes and the largest accreditation body of MBA programmes in China. We also represent an AMBA membership network of 18,500 MBA students and graduates in more than 100 countries, forming the world’s largest community of like-minded and highly qualified MBA alumni. China’s great strides and development across the MBA sector demonstrates its shared vision with AMBA and I’m very pleased to join the deans and directors of China’s top business schools to share ideas on how we can face the challenges and opportunities, in our sector, together.

‘In my presentation at The 6th International Business School Shanghai Conference (2016) I will unveil AMBA’s exciting plans for further collaboration with Chinese MBA programmes, as well as shed light on the four biggest issues facing deans, directors and AMBA members over the coming years: globalisation, employability, digital learning and sustainability. These will all be connected to the technological revolution, which is the theme of the conference.

‘As the global labour market becomes increasingly heated and economies remain volatile and uncertain, businesses need a new breed of leader to future-proof economies, ride the chaos and innovate through this complexity. Businesses and businesses schools have to collaborate and rise to the challenge of finding these diamonds in the rough and our mission with AMBA in China is to make this a reality. Together, we’re well on the way to achieving this goal.’

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive Officer, AMBA

‘Chinese Business Schools have advanced at an incredible speed over the past decade. This is evident in the interaction-and-learning-focused (not teaching-focused) design of new business school buildings and classrooms; the advanced pedagogy of using simulations, games and live case studies; and the recruiting of international faculty under the ‘Thousand Talents Programme’ and beyond. AMBA has been a staunch ally and supporter in the process of raising quality and striving for internationalisation and our 30 AMBA-accredited schools in China are a testament to that.’

George Iliev, Director of Development Markets, AMBA
