G-20 leaders reached an important consensus at the Hangzhou Summit 2016, which is to take innovation as a key driver and foster new driving force of growth for the global economy. The economic growth is now occurring mostly in emerging markets, and today’s global challengers-fast-growing, fast-globalizing companies-are from emerging markets. These trends and characteristics provide a new set of opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors in both the developed and developing worlds. Therefore, it is time to get the globalization story right and understanding the rise of emerging and frontier markets, especially China, is the way to do it.
To share opportunities and interests through opening-up and achieve win-win outcomes, the School of Management, Zhejiang University (China) has devoted itself to offering the Program in Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Global Leadership (PIEGL). The program is designed for recent graduates from international prominent universities, with the aim of nurturing future business leaders who can obtain a deeper understanding of the emerging markets and work in global or multicultural contexts.
In this program, the students are expected to acquire comprehensive knowledge about leadership philosophy and frontier management practices in China and other emerging markets, think systemically and collaborate with diverse peoples across a multicultural context, and get practical, hands-on experience, so the students can learn to solve business problems in an innovative and entrepreneurial way. The students will sharpen not only leadership skills, but also perspectives indispensable for a true global innovator.
