Dr. Xiang Bing knows China business as few others. He has decades of experience researching the relationship between state and business, reform of state-owned enterprises, innovation and the role of the private sector in China, globalization of Chinese companies, and  global implications of transformation of China. His writings and cases on these subjects are considered among the most influential in China.

Dr. Xiang also is an accomplished educator and innovator. Following an academic apprenticeship in Calgary (UCalgary) and Hong Kong (HKUST), he was recruited as Professor of Accounting at Peking University’s Guanghua School of Management, and pioneered that School’s Executive MBA program. Subsequently, he became a founding faculty of the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) in Shanghai. Afterwards, Dr. Xiang became Founding Dean at Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, and oversaw that School’s rise in global prominence.

Dr. Xiang’s Lecture will be informed by the extensive work he directed, as consultant and training, for leading companies in China and internationally. He is an independent board member of a number of companies listed in Hong Kong, mainland China, and the US. Furthermore, as an alumnus of the University of Alberta, (Ph.D., Business Administration, 1991), Dr. Xiang knows Alberta well, and looks forward to introducing to his audience implications that are specific to Canada, in his analysis of China’s on-going transformation.
