Today (12 May), Møller Institute Executive Education team delivered a very well received Zoom webinar to 158 finance sector leaders in China and around the world as part of its continued commitment to supporting the executive education requirements of its clients, some of the biggest banking brands in the world.

The webinar, “China’s Politics, Public Health and Economy” was a lively 90 minute panel discussion led by Møller Institute Associate, Du Yang, (pictured above), Head of Asset Management and Managing Director of China Securities (International) Asset Management at China Securities International. The discussion focus was around the geopolitical role of China; healthcare research and innovation; China’s Belt and Road Initiative and Economic Reform, and the impact of Covid 19 on international markets.

The panel included:

  • Cherry YU, Senior Research Fellow on China, Asia-Pacific Programme at Chatham House
  • Jinny YAN, Managing Director and Chief China Economist at ICBC Standard Bank
  • Geoffrey YU, Investment Strategist at UBS
  • Henry LI, Research Fellow in Health Innovation and Policy Engagement at IIPP, UCL

The webinar was attended by representatives from The Export-Import Bank of China; China Development Bank; Industrial and Commercial Bank of China; Agricultural Bank of China; China Investment Corporation; China Development Bank and Agricultural Bank of China; HSBC; BOCOM; Union Pay; Everbrite; Shanghai Stock Exchange London Office; Universities including Tsinghua, Fudan, CKGSB, CUHK; Tech Companies including – Huawei and Tencent Cloud.

Jeffy Li, Overseas Programme Director explained, “The Møller Institute team have been working closely with clients in China to support them deal with the serious impact and challenges that Covid-19 has presented, as well as helping them explore opportunities for their post-Covid transformation. Using our experience and expertise in the delivery of blended learning, the team have quickly been able to flex, adapt and redesign ongoing programmes with Chinese financial institutions to give them live remote access alongside exciting new and bespoke online learning materials. The level of attendance at this webinar highlighted to me that although at this moment we are unable to deliver face-to-face learning in Cambridge or in-company, our flexible model and incredible convening power still allows us to bring together Cambridge academics, global industry practitioners and leadership development experts virtually to create impactful experiences for our clients. This agility and collaboration with clients can only enhance our reputation as one of the market leaders in executive education delivery here in China.”

The Møller Institute has become a leading player in the design and delivery of executive education for the Chinese market, delivering its first programme in 2006. The team have worked extensively with the corporate, banking, construction and healthcare sectors. The team continue to work with many of the biggest banking brands in the world and has programmes in 2020/21 with The Export-Import Bank of China; China Development Bank; Industrial and Commercial Bank of China; Agricultural Bank of China; China Investment Corporation; China Development Bank and Agricultural Bank of China.
