On March 21st, 2016, MBA students from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) visited Lingnan College at Sun Yat-sen University, and attended two lectures given by Prof. Lin Jiang, head of the Department of Public Finance and Taxation of Lingnan College, and Mr. Jack Perkowski, managing partner of JFP Holdings and author of the book Managing the Dragon.

Prof. Lin Jiang giving a lecture

Prof. Lin Jiang delivered a lecture on the topic of China’s manufacturing. He analysed the current manufacturing industry in China and put forward his predictions about its future development. Prof. Lin began with the new stage of China’s economic development and explained the concept of “new normal”. In the “new normal”, China’s manufacturing is faced with both new challenges and new opportunities. With increasing labour costs, the traditional labour-intensive manufacturing gradually loses its advantage. In his view, China’s manufacturing has no choice but to transform and upgrade to a capital-intensive and technology-driven mode. The UCLA students showed great interest in the subject and actively interacted with the professor.

Globalization has long been a distinctive feature of Lingnan’s education. Being AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB accredited, Lingnan gains its recognition as a world-class business school. It endeavours to give students opportunities to exchange with peers from leading business schools, and at the same time seizes chances to show the world its quality education and vision. By actively engaging itself in international collaborations and establishing extensive global partnership with leading international business schools through student exchanges, faculty exchanges, and global immersion programmes, Lingnan will nurture more and more competent managers and business leaders with vision and innovation capability in the future.
