President's Message

Warm greetings from China,

I am deeply honored to be the President of AAPBS, and I also know that it is a great responsibility and a wonderful opportunity for me to serve, and contribute to the development of, AAPBS. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all the member institutions for your trust and support.

Since its establishment, AAPBS has always aimed to promote and improve the quality of business education and research in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Over the past years, AAPBS has made great stride in achieving our goal. Today, AAPBS has become an important international organization that actively expands its influence, and promotes exchanges and cooperation among business educators in the region.

The Asia-Pacific region is one of the most economically dynamic regions in the world, generating more and more business innovations and playing an increasingly important role in the world economy. Meanwhile, this region also faces great challenges, many specific to the region. These changes require greater effort toward business education innovation and better services to the stakeholders of business schools in the region. Against this backdrop, AAPBS should strive to keep innovating to make our collaboration and exchanges more effective, our service to our stakeholders more valuable, and our teaching and research better reflect social responsibility. I am willing to work together with members of the AAPBS community toward achieving these objectives.

I believe that with the collective efforts and collaboration of our members, AAPBS will continue to make a positive social impact and make the world a better place.

May we persevere in our missions and beliefs and move forward together toward the new goals.

With very best wishes,

Chong-En Bai
