  • MIT-China Management Education Project Celebrates 20th Anniversary

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 8, 2015 – The MIT Sloan School of Management is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the MIT-China Management Education Project. The project began in 1996 to provide opportunities for MIT faculty, staff, and students to learn about China and to support the development of graduate management education in China. The project has significantly grown over the years, but faculty development and curriculum design have remained priorities. MIT Sloan's partners in this project include Fudan University, Lingnan (University) College at Sun Yat-sen University, Tsinghua University, and Yunnan University.

    An anniversary celebration will be held Oct. 15 in Hong Kong with a dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel with the deans of the participating schools and key supporters of the project, including MIT alumnus Chi-Won Yoon, chair of AEB, and MIT alumnus Dr. Philip Kwok, former CEO of the Wing On Group.

    MIT Sloan Dean David Schmittlein says, “We believe deeply in the importance of management education, and the MIT-China Management Education Project is a hallmark of that belief. As we go forward, we hope to explore new avenues of impact in China, on China-U.S. relationships, and on China’s continuing growth as a leader in the world.”
