September 23 and 24 BI Norwegian Business School and Fudan University School of Management in close collaboration with the four Nordic business chambers in Shanghai and the Nordic Centre at Fudan University are hosting the Nordic Business Forum Shanghai 2016.
The business forum is a celebration seminar of the 20 years partnership between BI and Fudan University, School of Management. Understanding the Chinese business culture and the chinese consumer behaviour are key elements during the two days.
No other Nordic business school has the proximity to China as BI Norwegian Business School.
- Our slogan, "Best of Both" is about learning to capitalize on the differences and take advantage of the resources in a global world. The Nordic represent transparency, equality and a flat hierarchy. China brings pragmatism, speed and adaptability. Together we have the best combination to build a corporate culture of innovation and growth, says president of BI Norwegian Buisness School Inge Jan Henjesand.
For 20 years, since 1996, BI and Fudan University School of Management has jointly offered a part-time MBA programme which is currently ranked as top 10 in the world by Financial Times. The programme has educated more than 2000 Chinese and foreign talents that mostly work for multinational companies.
- I want to thank the Nordic business chambers of commerce in Shanghai and the Nordic Centre at Fudan for our joint partnership and the efforts you have done to make this conference a reality. The cooperation with the business chambers and the business community in Shanghai is crucial for sharing knowledge and experiences across cultures and countries, says Henjesand.
